As the days get sunnier, who doesn’t like to get outside and enjoy the rays? The summer is a great time to make memories outdoors while camping, playing sports, hiking, or laying by the pool.
It’s also a time to make sure you’re properly protected from summer health hazards like the sun. As important as it is to protect yourself from the sun, when it comes to lathering up with sunscreen you might want to think twice about what’s inside the bottle.
There are two types of ultraviolet light that come from the sun:
UVA- which penetrates the deeper layers of the skin, provoking aging,
UVB- which is linked with causing sunburns.
Sunscreen protects from both UVA and UVB rays, which makes it an important part of your outdoor skincare routine. Not all sunscreens are created equal and if you’re only looking at the SPF on the bottle, you’re missing out on some important information.
Like any body product, it’s important to read the label to know what’s going on and in your body. A few harmful chemicals to keep in mind when shopping for sunscreen are paraben, benzophenone and retinyl palmitate. These can cause a change in the action of estrogen receptors and lead to hormonal disorders.
Luckily there are natural sunscreens that provide UVA & UVB defence. Check out Green Beaver’s line of natural sunscreens for adults (face and body) and for kids. They’re available in cream format or a spray for convenience.
