Is Sunscreen Your Enemy or Your Friend?

It is that time of year, the sun is getting stronger and the weather is warmer with each passing day. So with that in mind, here are a few points on using and choosing the best sun protection products.

One of the skin care products under fire from the FDA of late is sunscreen and it's effectiveness. This is an important topic for me to talk about anyway as the coming spring and summer sun have the highest UVB/UVA ray's of the year.

This is a cautious time for "winterized" skin.

Scientific studies done on chemically-based sunscreens, such as oxybenzone and octylmethoxycinnamate, have shown to disrupt endocrine activity. Additionally, and sunscreen that still has any form of vitamin A in it (retinols) should not be purchased.

These ingredients have been shown to become carcinogenic to skin cells when exposed to sunlight. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are safer and perfectly effective alternatives made from safflower oil (like the one we have in the Ginale Skin Care line).

The other tip you need to know today is that there's never an occasion you need a sunscreen over SPF 30. Any amount of protection over that is unnecessary and a waste of money.

What's more, it can become highly irritating to the skin for most people after short periods of application. Also, if you should happen to get some in your eyes by mistake, look out! That stuff stings!

I hope you find this information and guidance helpful. These are easy things to start looking at and making changes to so you get healthy skin with out sacrificing your overall well being!
