Face Gets Hot after Sunscreen

Hello everyone! I’m really new to using sunscreen (and skin care general). I was wondering if it’s normal that my face gets hot after applying my sunscreen? For context, this is my ever first bottle of sunscreen. I was fine the first week of using it but my inner cheek area started getting hot after applying sunscreen during the second week. It doesn’t sting or burn, it just gets really warm. I’m using the Face Republic Super Screen Sun Gel SPF 50+. Is this normal? Should I be concerned and stop using it? Thank you so much in advance🤗

It sounds your skin is getting irritated with the sunscreen. It happens to me to with a certain former sunscreen. On somedays it is tolerable, on somedays it feels hot and very uncomfortable.

Both chemical and physical sunscreens absorb light and work by converting this to heat…it’s generally the mechanism of action of sunscreens…a thermal reaction is involved Physical sunscreens refelect about 5-10% UV radiation …maybe you can try them and see if the effect is less
