So I'm going to St. John in a few weeks and a colleague here at work has been warning me about getting a 'brown mustache' from the sun. I've been pretty good these past few years about using strong sunscreen - especially after I discovered that without it, I get really blotchy - ugly brown spots on my face. Plus I'm heavily tatooed, so I always wear 50+ on my body. But is wearing sunscreen enough now that I'm preg? Do I need to go all out with the hat and shades and shirt and totally stay out of the sun? I mean, it's not like I want to fry or anything, but if I've got 50+ on, I should be able to lay out for an hour or so, no? I don't want to look like an ugly brown dirt splotch face pregnant lady!
Continuous sun exposure will fade tattoos over time & make them look pretty ratty...fuzzy lines, faded color, etc. I've invested quite a bit of $ in mine, so I make sure to protect them. Guess I'll have to take my chancves with the brown spots...no way am I going to a tropical island only to wear long sleeves & pants and stay indoors!
sunblock will protect you from sun damage to a certain extent but , freckiling and brown sun spots are the body natural way of protecting its self from the sun,
white sun spots or spots on the skin that dont tan are a kind of fungus (tinea)
like dandruff and you can get ride of them by using selsum blue or a diffrent kind of dandriff shampoo as body wash for a lil while it should kill it if not see a doc ofcorse but it takes a few days maybe weeks to see results
tattoos should always be protected if you want them to last even if you want the rest of your body tan try using spf lip balm and just color over your tatts
