We all love the sunshine. Most of us know we need to get a healthy dose of vitamin D each day to keep us healthy and live life in the best possible way. The problem we all face is to enjoy the sunshine without damaging our skin with the rays of the sun, or to come in contact with the toxic ingredients found in many sun protection creams.
Is sun protection cream healthy? The answer: Yes and no. Yes, it’s protects form certain UV-rays for a period of time. No, most of the skin protection products contain toxic ingredients. Our tip: just stay most of the time in the shadow. We will explain it in this article.
Just stay out of the sun from 10am to 4pm
Sun protection cream is something we are all told to use on a daily basis to make sure our skin is protected from the damaging rays of the sun in all their various forms, but sunscreen packaging does not explain which kind of rays we are being protected from as we cover ourselves in various creams.
Vitamin D3 is much needed for our bodies to remain healthy and we should all look to get at least 20 minutes sunshine each day. The best option is to simply avoid the times of the day when the sun is at its height in the sky and its rays are strongest, which in most parts of the world means finding the shade and staying covered up from 10am until 4pm.
Sun skin protection cream is still important on overcast days
Even on overcast days it is important to remember the answer to the question of whether it is safe to be in the sun or not... just keep most of the time in the shadows. On overcast days around 80 percent of the sun's UV rays can still pass through cloud and damage the skin or eyes. The majority of sun protection creams does not provide information on the level of UV protection they provide, making it difficult to find the right protection.
Don't allow toxins to absorb into the skin
If you have ever read the ingredient list of any sun protection cream you will probably have been confused about what the bottle actually contains. From the absorption of toxins into the body and skin to the release of estrogen into the bloodstream. Most sun protection creams have different effects on the body and can easily do more harm than good for the user.
