The Best of Green Beauty: Natural Sunscreen 2016
Ooh that sun, it's so warm and inviting. After a long winter, our bodies crave that sweet, healthy dose of Vitamin D. But, before we get carried away, let's remember that solar power packs a punch when exposed to bare skin. You know, the skin we're in – that layer of protection that we have to live with our whole lives?
Skin damage is no joke. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer, and it's also the most preventable. But there are also precautions to take when choosing sunscreen. Many mainstream sunscreens contain harmful chemicals that are absorbed through skin and end up in the bloodstream, which is worse when we remember that we are applying these products from head to toe. So while you're enjoying the heat and light of the rays of bliss, make sure that you're being sun safe.
From lipstick to full body, we have what you need to block out harmful UV rays – the healthy way. Get some green sun in 2016.
