The summer is coming and while we here in Chicago can’t wait for the heat (we sick and tired of the cold, and the rain, and the wind), we can wait for the summer burn. Watch video below to see the actual importance of wearing sunscreen all year round. You won’t find ANYTHING better to protect the largest organ of your body.
With that being said, what’s the best way wear sunscreen. If you’re going to be out in the sun for hours at a time, and especially in the water you should reapply your sunscreen every hour no matter how high the SPF is. The best sunscreens to use over all are the one’s that have Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, or at least 3% avobenzone in them.
According to Dr. Oz the sunscreens that should be avoided are products with oxybenzone (an endocrine disruptor) and vitamin A (or retinyl palmitate), which paradoxically may increase your skin cancer risk. We found an article written by Good Housekeeping that tell us about the best natural sunscreens to use. These sunscreens do not have the ingredients in them that do the opposite of it should be doing. Not only they natural but they are affordable.
These sunscreens all meet the Environmental Working Group’s eco standards for a more natural alternative.
