Looking for a safe sunscreen?

Safer Skin Care

Looking for a safe sunscreen can be a challenge. I like to use the list recommended by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). You want to find ones without parabens, phthalates or toxic sun-blocking compounds (oxybenzone).

Most drugstore brands of common sunscreens often contain toxic ingredients that can cause hormonal disruptions, Yikes! and potential other health problems. Stick with sunscreens that use zinc oxide to be safe.

Not Just Sunscreen

By the way, many skin care products such as deodorant and moisturizers contain toxins as well. Be aware of what products your buy for your children as their developing bodies don’t need their hormones disrupted. [tweetthis]The average person uses about 7 different skin and hair care products per day. Think about the overload on the body when each of these products contain toxins. [/tweetthis]As you may have heard me speak about in the past, I only use USANA’s Sensé bath and body products as they are safe enough to eat!
