You have likely heard it consistently, especially with Singapore’s relentless weather and humidity not to skip sunscreen in the event that you want to prevent dark spots, sun damage and signs of aging. While it’s enticing to skip sunblock if you have oily, acne-prone skin, you could unintentionally cause long term skin issues including skin cancer and photosensitivity.
Skin cancer: UVB rays can cause sunburns and malignant melanoma, according to a study from the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
Photosensitivity: Heightened skin sensitivity or an unusual reaction when your skin is exposed to UV radiation from sunlight or a tanning bed according to the report by Skin Cancer Foundation.
