Summertime is here. Be sure to put on your sunscreen and NOT chemicals before you go outside!
By Emmie Steig
Wait, what? Fourth of July is coming up and how many of you are going to lather on sunscreen while hanging out by the pool and barbecuing?
Let me guess, you are putting it on to prevent burning, maybe so you won’t get wrinkles when you’re older, or maybe you have a family history of skin cancer and want to reduce your risk. All valid reasons, for sure!
You’re thinking ”I want to protect my body!!!!” and your mind is in the right place. But, I bet you didn’t know you are being counterproductive, that is, unless you take this simple step:
Use organic sunscreen!Sunscreens are filled with chemicals like octyl-methoxycinnamate, bexoblahblahblah, and a bunch of other long names that make your brain hurt when you try and pronounce them. These chemicals may absorb UV rays and prevent them from hurting your skin BUT those sneaky guys are being absorbed into your body and are messing up your hormones. The chemicals disrupt your hormone levels, for example estrogen. When estrogen levels are high, it actually feeds cancer cells and helps them to grow and reproduce.
Bad chemicals in sunscreen = Unhappy body which can = Cancer
So what should you do? You need to be using sunscreen that is natural; sunscreen that is free of these nasty chemicals.
