    Elta MD is working really well for me but I've been recently put off by reading about octinoxate and the potential harm it can do to humans. There's so much conflicting information out there which...

    Thanks guys.

    I've never tried tinted before (I'm a bloke!) but am not completely against the idea as long as it's not noticeable.

    Thanks. So that's basically saying a small proportion of people will progress through the sub types which is kind of what I thought.

    Does subtype 1 inevitably lead to subtype 2?

    Hi, quick question. I have subtype 1 and was wondering if this always led to subtype 2 over time? I didn't think it necessarily did but some things I've been reading suggest this is the general...

    Yeah that's why I'm reluctant to go down the chemical route. I'm just interested in his claim that zinc is no good for preventing long term UVA damage. I wonder how credible his claim is.

    Not sure about miracle cream but it's provided me with sun protection with no obvious adverse effects. Hope it works for you Dave.

    Just to add that I applied one small pea sized application of mirvaso to the reddest area on my face about 5 weeks ago so I may be experiencing/have experienced some weird kick backs from that.
