Yes, you can and should apply sun block. Make sure that you apply finacea and allow it to fully dry before applying the sun block, and try to use a sun block that's at least 30+. The higher the number the better the protection because finacea contains azelaic acid, a tyrosinase inhibitor, which prevents your body from making tyrosine, which is an amino acid.
It is found in most proteins that contribute to the body making melanin. Melanin contributes to the amount of pigment in your skin, a natural sunscreen, depending on how much your body makes determines how dark your skin will be. Darker skin doesn't burn as easily as lighter skin therefore the lighter the skin the stronger the sun block should be.
