Sun Care Everyday
We often think of sun protection as summer specific. But in reality, we should be wearing it everyday, rain or shine—no matter the season.
The sun’s rays can be harmful. What’s even more harmful is not protecting your skin.
Another damaging factor can be going overboard and slathering our skin with “sun protection" that’s actually loaded with toxic chemicals—so toxic that it may even increase sunlight-related cancers. Not to mention the damaging effects of chemicals (such as oxybenzone), found in many sunscreens, bleaching our coral reefs.
That said, sunlight is an important source of vitamin D—aiding bone & muscle health—regulating our metabolism, and even boosting our mood through serotonin. Recently, I’ve been thinking about the importance of finding a balanced relationship with the sun and wanted to shed some light on being more sun savvy.
