Use Old Sunscreen As Moisturizer

Most people toss out products when the expiration date comes about. For your sunscreen, go ahead and use it for moisturizer, instead of tossing it in the trash. As expensive as it is, go ahead and get your money's worth from it.

Hi

I have been told that with sunscreen, it should be watched for expiration dates. My mother knew some one who got a chemical burn from using sunscreen that was past its expiration date. I have no sources other than this one person. on this but I started replacing the sunscreen after the expiration date because I did not want to take any chances as I have children.

I, too, would not recommend this, as the chemicals in sunscreen are not good for you and do absorb readily into your skin.
