Retinol or AHAS +SPF
Yup, any kind of retinol or alpha hydroxy acid majorly increases your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, meaning you’re at a much higher risk of burning, even in cloudy weather! If you’re using any kind of retinol or skin brightening AHA, make sure you’re wearing a daily SPF50 and use in the evening to further protect against the risk of UV damage.
