Those who have regrettably gotten sunscreen in their eyes know firsthand how much it can hurt. In fact, I am someone who has experienced a severe case. It compares to mace or pepper spray. It can take hours for you to comfortably open your eyes, especially outside in the bright sun.
Needless to say rubbing sunblock in your eyes is likely to ruin a day of fun in the sun very quickly. Though it is common that discomfort will remain for some time, you should try to tend to it as soon as possible.
The best way to treat the condition is to rinse the eye beneath a tap of water for some time. This will rinse the lotion out of the eye but it probably won’t relieve the stinging at once. For discomfort, cool, wet compresses to the eyes may have a soothing effect. Eye drops may help in rinsing out the eye, but it is likely they will cause burning. The best way to avoid this going forward, stop using chemical sunscreens. All Love Sun Body sunscreen formulas do not contain any eye stinging ingredients and are water-resistant for 80 minutes and sweat-resistant.
Another major concern with sunscreen is it staying effective while sweating.
