Doesnt depend so much on your age but on how much time u spend in the sun, how strong is the sun where u live, your skin tone etc. In general SPF 30 is good.

Hi... I am 25 yrs female from chennai.. i came to know about melacare through my sister and have been using it one and half months.. It worked well on my tanned skin and gave glowing soft texture.. I generally use herbal products which is home made so i have stopped using it by thinking the side effects. Now i visibly seeing acnes and my face gets dark. I m scared to continue that cream after reading out the side effects of it. Hydroquinone was found to cause cancer in rats and mice, which is why the European Union banned it from cosmetics as far back as 2001 - and it is also known to be irritant in the concentrations needed to lighten skin, particularly when combined with Tretoin. Tretoin makes the skin more sensitive to UVA and UVB rays, and therefore users are normally advised to avoid sunlight. please suggest me a good skin care cream which will stop whiteheads or blackheads and keep the skin healthy glowing.. please...

Hi, I have a combination skin, which means oily on my t-zone and dry on cheeks . I take care of my face real good. I wash it every night with a gentle cleanser , I moisturize it, and whenever I get pimple or acne I use the acne medicine and it will disappear. But in the few past days I got some pimples and acnes which just dont go away! And whenever they disappear new ones come out! Why is that? What should I do? p.s. I do exercises, and I eat healthy. And I m 18.
