Sunscreen and the heat?☀️

Hello 🌈 Is it true that heat makes the sunscreen go bad? If you’re carrying it in your bag whether the sun hits the bag directly or not.. the sunscreen still heats up so how would you keep it cool? Also I accidentally left my sunscreen in my car in 108°F….and im wondering if I should toss it and use my backup… 🥺

I think as long as it’s not direct sunscreen then it shld be fine. if u r concern abt it , use it on ur body rather than using it on ur face 😊

Hi~ I know that if we left sunscreen in the heat it will shorten the shelf life and become less effective. Did you leave it in the car for more than 1 week?

Check if the sunscreen has separated or anything or if there's a change in the texture but if you still wanna be safe and don't want to take any chances then use it on your body if it hasn't spoiled due to heat .

Hi, temperature, light etc react to products, not only sunscreens, but it's not like it'll automatically go back. If you don't use 'organic' products I wouldn't be scared since skincare has many other ingredients than sun agents, active ingredients, like preservatives, buffers, etc - they keep product fresh for a bit longer :)

I carry my sunscreen around in my bag to reapply. I didn't know that high heat temperature would affect it! Thank you for raising this discussion as I've learnt something new❣️ I'm following you on IG. I'd appreciate if you followed me too 💕 @blueskies8whiteclouds
