Why you should use natural sunscreen.

As the summer season approaches, we all look forward to enjoying the warm sun and spending time outdoors. However, it’s important to remember the harmful effects of sun exposure and take necessary precautions to protect our skin. One of the best ways to do this is by using a natural sunscreen.

Most of the sunscreens available in the market contain chemicals that are harmful to both our skin and the environment. These chemicals can cause skin irritation, allergies, and even hormonal imbalances.

Moreover, when we swim in the ocean or any other water source, these chemicals, like oxybenzone, get washed off and harm marine life. Hence, another benefit of using natural sunscreen is that it can be better for the environment. If you take a look at MyChelle Sun Shield Unscented SPF 28, it is not only a lightweight formula that absorbs quickly, but it is also Reef Safe and Biodegradable.

On the other hand, natural sunscreens contain ingredients that are non-toxic and safe for both our skin and the environment. These ingredients include zine oxide and titanium dioxide, which are minerals that reflect the sun’s rays instead of absorbing them. For example, the active ingredient of MyChelle Sun Shield Liquid SPF 50 Non-Tinted is Zinc Oxide – 20.5%.

Additionally, natural sunscreens often contain plant-based oils and extracts that nourish the skin and provide antioxidants to fight against free radicals. Acure Radically Rejuvenating SPF 30 Day Cream offers reef-safe zinc sun protection with nourishing botanicals like Aloe Vera (for hydration), Argan Oil, Coconut Oil, and Shea Butter (for moisture).

Using natural sunscreen is especially important for people with sensitive skin or skin conditions like eczema. The chemicals in conventional sunscreens can aggravate these conditions and cause further damage to the skin. Natural sunscreens are gentler on the skin and provide a more soothing and calming effect.

In conclusion, using natural sunscreen is not only better for our skin but also better for the environment.

By choosing a natural sunscreen, we can protect our skin from harmful UV rays without causing any harm to ourselves or the environment. So, the next time you head out for a day in the sun, make sure to grab a bottle of natural sunscreen and enjoy your time outdoors without any worries.
