Avoid These Sunscreen Ingredients

If you can’t pronounce the ingredients then you probably shouldn’t eat it. I’m sure you’ve heard that one before! The same (kinda) goes for your favourite summertime lotion…Sunscreen! 

 

Sunscreen will help protect your skin when you head outside, but not all those ingredients are good for your skin.

 

Some sunscreens could be harming your health with toxic chemicals, and when used over a long period of time can have negative effects.

 

Check out your brands and watch out for chemicals such as Oxybenzone, Octinoxate (Octylmethoxycinnamate), Homosalate, Octisalate, and Octocrylene.
