While experts have long been encouraging people to wear sunscreen and limit sun exposure, not much has been known about what happens after the exposure. A recent study by Douglas E. Brash, a clinical professor of therapeutic radiology and dermatology at Yale University dicovered that a lot of damage done by the UV rays occurs after the sun exposure.
About the Study
Brash’s team exposed both mice and human melanocyte cells to UV rays and found that damage continued after the UV exposure.
Sanjay Premi, an associate research scientist in Brash’slaboratory, discovered this occurred because two enzymes excited an electron in the melanin, a process known as chemiexcitation. This process was responsible for the UV damage continuing after the UV exposure.
The team tested two different products that were able to stop the UV damage from occurring after the exposure.
Sunlight’s Negative Effects on Skin
Proper skin care is essential when it comes to spending time outdoors. Prolonged exposure to sunlight without proper care can lead to photoaging. Brown spots and wrinkles can worsen your complexion and increase risk of skin cancer.

Cleansing is the first thing in facial skin care routine. Cleansing helps in removing dust, pollutants, grease and extra oil from your skin, thereby preventing damage to your skin. Just spot your face and neck with a good cleansing lotion or cream and gently massage it into your skin using upward strokes. Use a soft face tissue or cotton wool to wipe your face in a gentle patting fashion (do not rub).

Cleansing should be done at least twice a day i.e. morning (as part of complete facial skin care routine) and evening (on a standalone basis). Water soluble cleansers are the best for inclusion in your facial skin care routine.

I do not see anything wrong with putting that on your skin. It is what it is meant for & as long as you're ok with this tradition I would probably do the same thing.
