    if you can avoid it or protect yourself through hats, shades & similar thats great
    sunscreen does work, it's easy to verify that, the issue is that non-mineral sunscreen is absorbed by your body and might cause issues depending on ingredients

    just use mineral sunscreen and avoid prolonged sun exposure if you can.
    Also learn how to apply sunscreen and how much you should use, most ppl get this wrong

      The tiny amount that gets absorbed is so negligible that it doesn't matter. The exhausts from cars, microplastics etc is far more hurting for your health

          No, what I said is that there is nothing to worry about, you live in constant exposure of unhealthy shit, the small amount that sunscreen will add is negligible and won't affect your health.
          You're moronic

            >theres SOOOO much more dangerous stuff anyways so it really doesn’t matter anymore does it??? Rubbing plastic cancer goop all over the most sensitive areas of your body is nothing compared to what maybe happens around you anyways, why bother reducing your exposure to harmful substances that can negatively affect your health??? It doesn’t matter anyways because danger is everywhere!!!!!

        >your system is always inundated with environmental poisons anyway so what's one more?
        It is funny how you think this is an argument in favor of using chemical sunscreens instead of against it. How is the weather up there on the summit of Mt. Midwit?

    sunscreen helps but avoiding it is the best way. Keep in mind that any kind of light gives us skin damage, although in lesser quantities.
    Tbh aging is something no one can avoid, and it's best to get a little sunlight and keep using sunscreen when you're gonna be exposed for prolonged periods of time (like an hour or more).

        UV is the only damaging one.
        Modern LED bulbs don't create UV unless on purpose or gross accident. Compact fluorescents create a minor amount. But not even enough for you to make vitamin D, unless it's a special reptile bulb.

        A rarely known trick. If you don't want bugs on your front porch lights, replace your 10 year old CFL with an LED

    Yes. I forgot what camera filter you need to do this but if you put on sunscreen you can literally see the layer of black you are putting over your skin through the camera filter. By doing so it is reflecting most of the sunlight off the area you applied sunscreen on

    Why does this board have a fear of aging? Didn't have a fulfilling youth so trying to extend to experience things they didn't when they were young?

    I use a moisturized for oily skin every morning, it takes 15 seconds to apply on my face and if it makes me look a little better down the line then why not

    Might switch to one with a bit of SPF in summer

    actual answer here yes it protects your screen and is good to put on if you are going to be out and about while avoiding is "optimal" but you want vitamin d from the sun, you want to get one not from america because of fda classifications us suncreens are decades behind the rest of the world so much so they had to create a sunscreen act in 2014. the best are from japan or korea which shouldnt be surprising since they are big into skincare. recommended brands are Nivea sun protect super water gel spf 50, or Biore UV aqua rich spf 50 with the biore watch out they made a version for american markets that follows fda guidelines so it is just worse overall
