We often hear that sunscreen should be apart of everyone’s daily routine in order to protect our skin from the sun’s harmful rays. However, is that really what the sunscreen is doing?
What many consumers don’t know is that they are most often purchasing a bottle full of harmful chemicals.
When you slather a typical name brand sunscreen all over your body, your skin is absorbing the chemicals into your bloodstream which is then dispersing all throughout your body.
What you should also remind yourself is the sun is the most natural way for you to receive vitamin D. Most foods don’t contain the amount of vitamin D your body needs, so exposing yourself to the sun in moderation is a great way to boost your vitamin D intake. If you are going to be in the sun for longer than 20 minutes a day, choose a more natural sunscreen option.
While stores that carry natural products like Whole Foods Market and Trader Joe’s may not be accessible to everyone, goodhousekeeping.com offers a wide range of natural sunscreen products you can have delivered to your door.
It is always important to do your research when it comes to what is going in and on your body. You can still protect your skin but in a healthier way, decide what is best for you and inform the people around you.
