Does suncream still work if you don’t allow it to dry before going out? I applied it 10 minutes before going out. Also I got on my lips and swallowed small amount. Is this anything to worry about?

In brief: Sunscreen 30 min

It is best to wait 30 minutes after applying sunscreen before going out.
Licking sunscreen is not recommended, but is safe in most cases.
