The FDA continues to pound out the idea that the sun is bad, and you should completely block it out. They are even making new regulations for labeling sunscreens.
What the FDA never really seems to mention is that some sun exposure in moderation is actually healthy for the body. It provides good Vitamin D, and is vital for warding off serious illnesses like multiple sclerosis, cognitive decline, bone loss, and even cancer.
And I haven’t even mentioned viscious chemicals that are actually in most sunscreens available on the market today. They contain things like untested nanoparticles, as well as known toxins like retinyl palmitate and oxybenzone. These chemicals are absorbed into the body, just the same as if you were eating them, if not worse.
So before you hit the beach or the pool and lather on that Subscreen, make sure you read your labels. Coconut oil is a good natural sunscreen, though you need to apply it more often. There are also good organic and natural sunscreen alternatives online and in grocery stores.
How do you feel about sunscreen? Is there a certain type that you use or recommend that is safe and natural? You can leave a comment by clicking here.
