For many people, summer activities include spending long periods of time outdoors. One of the things we need to be mindful of is this. If you’re going to be in the sun for long periods, you must use sunscreen! Who hasn’t gotten a sunburn before and said, “I will never let this happen again!” I know I have! We also must remember the sun isn’t bad for us and provides our bodies with Vitamin D.Many people slather on commercial sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (spf) thinking they’re protecting their skin. In reality, they’re exposing themselves to chemicals 1000 times more harmful than the sun. Studies show many “commercial” sunscreen ingredients contribute more to skin cancer than the sun itself. Here are the top 5 poisonous sunscreen ingredients to look out for and avoid like the plague!
