Is it necessary for someone like me who wants to be whiter to wear sunscreen indoors too? I get the feeling that the sun rays are could affact you through the windows etc. anybody know about that?

PS. Does diluting lemon juice with water to make it easier on the skin reduce it's effectiveness?



Thanks, Brandt

Hi Brandt, I really do think we should wear sunscreen indoors as well. I have a sunny family room, even in the winter, so I wear it all day.

I don't know anything about lemon juice other than my mom used to put it in her hair then go into the sun to bleach it! It dried it out to an awful mess though.

Have you read the monster 14-page Shock sunscreen thread? There was some discussion there about your concern. UVA, the spectrum that causes aging (pigmentation & wrinkles) can penetrate glass. I'm not sure UVB, the spectrum that causes tanning/burning, can do the same. But if you spend a lot of time near windows its a safer bet to wear sunscreen indoors. Consider also that light can deflect off surfaces so even when you are not in direct sun you are still exposed to some extent.

Here's the sunscreen thread -

Yeah, I had a feeling about that. Thanks. I'll be sure to wear 60+ SPF sunscreen all day, in or outdoors.

Also, you don't know about a good eye cream with sun protection? Often, I rub my sunscreen close to my eyes and they usually irritate them. Man, that hurts.

I find the physical blocks (with titanium and zinc) don't sting my eyes the chemical ones (with Parsol and Mexoryl, etc) do sting. I use Avene SPF 25 Lait/Lotion under my eyes currently, it's a physical block that doesn't sting or make my eyes water.

See, i spend most of my time in my room...and i have very thick sheets over the window...pure darkness. My mom likes to keep everything really open, so i just cover myself up and dont come out by the windows until i have sun protection. I've became even more sun sensitive though since avoiding light as much as i do...makes my eyes hurt Doubt

Just wanted to remind you all that although I believe wholeheartedly that suncream is essential to protect your skin, blocking yourself away from any sunlight is not a good thing. Shock

Sunlight is required for Vit D formation that occurs in the skin, and if you've ever heard of seasonal affective disorder, then you might know that it's primarily due to an over production or accumulation of melatonin (or melanin, I can never remember) that sunlight would usually convert to vit d. See its not always bad. Smile

Just a friendly reminder not to hate sunlight all together. Wink

I agree with you, but i get enough sunlight as it is from driving and days when i go to the park. Also, the reason my room is shaded is because if i don't, i wont be able to sleep a full 8 hours without being blinded by light. That was the essential reason for doing so...hehe. Some people are fanatical though...i just hate standing directly in the sun. If i dont burn..i blotch up, and that isnt healthy in my opinion.

Never thought about getting UV rays while indoors! Guess it never hurts to be prepared...
