Can sunscreen burn my face?

Sunscreen seems to burn my face and leave my face with uneven skin tone. Am I applying it wrong?

Answer

Thank you for your question. Firstly, I have to ask; “Are you using a body sunscreen on your face? Or are you using a proper facial sunblock?” Body sunscreen does tend to be a bit too harsh for the face. Secondly, if you ARE using a facial sunblock, is it scented? Scented products also tend to sting or burn sensitive skins. Lastly, there are just some people who really do need to be extremely particular about the sun blocks they use and have to pay special attention to the active ingredients in the product, and their skins are just highly reactive; in this case you would need to come and see one of our doctors to have a look at you, analyze your skin and advise you accordingly.
