Hello doctor,

I get tanned really easily. My skin is super sensitive. None of the sunscreens really helped me with this problem. If I am under the sun even for five minutes, I get super super tanned.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Which sunscreen are you using and its SPF? Actually, sunscreens are of two types. Physical and chemical. Physical sunscreen is better in protecting from suns radiation but the problem is that they are not cosmetically acceptable. Because they are visibly seen on the face. I will suggest you use topical Vitamin C preparation along with your sunblock. Properly use sunblock of SPF 60 frequently. Apply it every two hourly and evenly.


Treatment plan:

Apply sunblock of SPF 60, Use Vitamin C preparation BD.
