Skin lite creams contain steroids and tretinoin and excess of these compounds can be harmful to the body. They may not cause cancer but are linked with many other side effects. These compounds are also not suited for expectant & lactating mothers.
You should consult a dermatologist before using these creams for prolonged duration. There are other sun screens which you can use for prolonged periods without any major side effects.
