Hi guys,


How important is it to wear sunscreen while using a tyrosinase inhibitor? An aesthetician I went to told me that skin bleaching products like kojic acid, etc. do not make you photosensitive which I am extremely skeptical about. Isn't tanning meant to create a base protection from further UV damage? If you stop that, won't you be allowing more damage to happen to your skin? I would imagine that maybe ingredients like kojic acid would help just make your skin more sensitive to the sun, maybe only good in the winter when you have very little sun or uv exposure. Thoughts? Studies?
