How to choose a good natural sunscreen
Sunscreen is essential in our daily routine during the summer when the sun is in full swing!
However, not all sunscreens are created equal. Many contain chemicals and harmful ingredients that can be absorbed through the skin and cause damage over time. These chemicals have been linked to hormonal disruption and other health issues. See my article at this topic HERE.
So how do you choose a good natural sunscreen? Here are some tips to help you make an informed decision.
Look for mineral sunscreens
Mineral sunscreens are made with natural ingredients that are not harmful to skin and marine life. They act on the surface of the skin by reflecting the sun's rays, rather than being absorbed by the skin. Look for sunscreens that contain UV filtering agents such as zinc oxide (non-nano/no nanoparticles) or titanium dioxide.
I personally recommend sunscreens with non-nano zinc oxide because:
a) Titanium dioxide has been controversial in recent years and suspected of being carcinogenic when inhaled or ingested (International Agency for Research on Cancer). It is also banned in Luxembourg and France as a food additive.
b) Titanium dioxide is often present in the form of nanoparticles, i.e. extremely fine powders. The nanoparticles are able to cross the skin, especially if it has a lesion or is fragile, and can therefore pass into the blood.
NB: always check that the zinc oxide is followed by the mention non-nano.
Check the SPF
SPF (Sun Protection Factor) or SPF (Sun Protection Factor) is a measure of how well a sunscreen protects against UVB rays.
The higher the SPF, the more protection it offers. However, it is important to note that SPF only measures protection against UVB rays, not UVA rays, which can also cause damage to the skin.
UV = ultra-violet rays, radiation emitted by the sun.
UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin than UVB rays. In fact, UVA rays burn the skin, causing it to age prematurely.
Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both.
Choose your protection index according to your skin type, the place in which you will be exposed (high heat zone or the time you will spend there).
It's also important to choose a water-resistant mineral sunscreen if you plan to swim or play sports. Look for a product labeled "water resistant."
Read sunscreen reviews before buying it. Look for reviews from people with similar skin types to yours to see how well the sunscreen works for them. It can help you make an informed decision and avoid wasting money on sunscreen that doesn't work for you.
Finally, check the ingredient list to make sure there are no harmful ingredients in general and for you in particular. Look for a product free of parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrances, ect.
By following these tips, you can choose your mineral sunscreen that will offer you effective protection without harming your skin or the environment.
