The Importance of Sunscreen

by levy martinez on August 30, 2014

Sunscreen is absolutely vital when you’re going to spending a lot of time in the sun. Not only does it protect against sunburn, but it reduces the chance of developing skin cancer later in life.

SUNSCREEN

However, one of the main complaints many people have regarding sunscreen is the amount of chemicals involved in its production; their reasoning is that the beneficial effects of sunscreen are reduced by introducing potentially harmful substances into the body. However, there is an alternative: all natural sunscreen. This chemical free sunscreen is made using only natural ingredients that can be found in nature.

There are a series of standards put in place by the NPA – the Natural Products Association – to ensure that ‘natural’ products are truly natural. If you see a sunscreen bearing this seal, then you can rest assured that it has passed anything required of it. The majority of natural sunscreens including two primary ingredients, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which provide the same broad spectrum protection you’ve come to know and love with your standard sunscreens. In addition, there are often other ingredients included, such as Sunflower seed oil, Vitamin E, and others that provide moisturizing benefits for the skin.

Better yet, it’s SPF 30. Above this point, sunscreen begins to give diminishing returns; while you can purchase SPF 100, it’s not much more effective than SPF 30, so there’s no need to pay an increased price. As long as your sunscreen has both UVA and UVB protection, then you’re covered all the way around.

Your skin is the largest organ on your body. Why take a chance with it? Investing in the proper kind of sunscreen can guarantee that you and those you love are protected not only against the sun’s harmful rays, but also against potentially dangerous chemicals. The next time you plan a trip to the beach or an extended amount of time in the sun, make sure to choose the right sort of sunscreen to keep not only yourself, but also your family safe. And remember: sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours for maximum effectiveness.
