We all understand that over exposure to the sun in not safe and the use of safe sunscreen is necessary today. Especially during peak times when you are most likely to burn.
Some common health hazards associated with sun burns are skin cancer, wrinkles and freckles. And FYI, this recipe is a good home remedy for sunburns too!
Sunlight in moderation is necessary, healthy too! It promotes enjoyment, relaxation, fresh air and most importantly, it is nature's best source of Vitamin D. (TIP: calcium and vitamin D work together!)
The best practice to keep in mind while enjoying natures sunshine, would be to wear appropriate clothing, use shaded areas, and of course, use a 'safe' sunscreen.
Whether or not you believe sunscreen can prevent skin cancer, there is also the belief that many sunscreens can increase the risk. Despite what some doctors and marketers attempt to sell you on; many commercial sunscreens are just plain dangerous.
(Let's not forget, there was a time when health professionals endorsed cigarettes as being 'healthy and safe', until proven wrong. I feel it would apply in this case too with sunscreen.)
Ingredients matter; toxic chemicals can enter your bloodstream through your skin when you regularly use sunscreen.
Avoid these known harmful ingredients in chemical sunscreens:
(The later being acceptable in European countries but still questionable.)
There are many ingredients such as harmful preservatives that do not necessary need to be labeled. Many toxins have been banned in some countries already.
Products containing zinc can protect your skin from harmful UV radiation with little if any penetration. And always use insect repellent separately; do not mix it in with your sunscreen.
Spray and Powder Forms
Spray and powder form of sunscreen should also be avoided, in addition to cosmetics that include sunscreen within them.
Tip: I use emu oil for many other things besides a 'safe sunscreen' too, such as an eye makeup remover (a small amount on a q-tip) for burns and wounds (on my animals too) and for pain. It has even helped to minimize visible scars! And incase you missed it earlier, it's also a great home remedy for sunburn too...
