Sunscreen formulations do not interfere with sweat cooling during exercise
Sweating plays a critical role in maintaining thermal balance and keeping skin cool during exercise. People often wear sunscreens on hot summer days for sun protection. Most recreational sunscreens are designed to be water‐ and sweat‐resistant, so that sweating will not remove or compromise the protection. The objective of this study was to determine whether wearing sweat‐resistant sunscreen might impede natural sweating, potentially interfering with thermal regulation and resulting in the elevation of skin temperature.
