Summer is almost here which means longer days, more outdoor adventures, flip flops, and fun in the sun! If you’re not careful, though, this could be bad news for your skin. Increased exposure to damaging sun rays can promote wrinkles and increase your risk of getting skin cancer.
According to the Environmental Working Group, U.S. rates of melanoma have tripled since the 1970’s.
As a result, most of us have been told to always wear sunscreen and hats before going outdoors. Even on cloudy days you’re still exposed to damaging UV rays. You’re probably thinking “Yes, yes, I know already!”
But, do you know WHAT’s in your sunscreen?
Most conventional sunscreens are loaded with chemical sunscreen ingredients such as oxybenzone and avobenzone which can potentially be toxic. In fact, more than 40% of all beach and sport sunscreens contain oxybenzone!
Fortunately, there are effectives and healthier choices with sunscreens containing natural ingredients such as mineral zinc-oxide, which block sunlight from potentially damaging your skin.
“Juice Beauty’s tinted moisturizers are my favorite! I use them every morning for SPF 30 protection, tinted mineral coverage, excellent moisturizing and fabulous age defy ingredients,” says our Founder, Karen Behnke. Her favorite is the STEM CELLULAR™ CC Cream, the ultimate 12-in-1 multi-tasking, color correcting cream with potent antioxidant protection and SPF30 protection. There’s a reason it’s a bestseller!
So make the switch to natural mineral sunscreens made with certified organic ingredients with the UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection you need, and without the potentially harmful chemicals you don’t want!
