Skin Protection

When summer approaches, many of us start thinking about sun protection. Sunscreen is an essential part of any skin care routine, one type of sunscreen that has gained popularity in recent years is natural sunscreen. We’ll explore what natural sunscreen is, how it works, and what to consider when buying it.

what is natural sunscreen

Also known as physical or mineral sunscreen, the active ingredients in natural sunscreen are typically zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide, which are naturally occurring minerals. When we apply natural sunscreen to our skin, these particles sit on top of your skin and creates a physical barrier between your skin and the sun’s rays.

In contrast, chemical sunscreens contain synthetic chemicals, such as oxybenzone, avobenzone, octinoxate, and octocrylene. These chemicals work by absorbing UV rays and converting them into heat, which is then released from the skin and it needs time to be absorbed into the skin before they become effective.

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 that provides broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

 

Natural sunscreen has advantages :

  • the active ingredients are environment friendly while chemical one has been shown to be harmful to coral reefs and other marine life
  • it is less likely to cause skin irritation or allergic reactions as the active ingredients in natural sunscreen are less likely to penetrate the skin and enter the bloodstream

what to consider when buying natural sunscreen

A few things to keep in mind:
  1. Look for an SPF of at least 30 or above regardless of whether you choose a natural or chemical sunscreen
  2. Make sure it provides broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays.
  3. Make sure the sunscreen contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide as the active ingredients. Avoid sunscreens that contain oxybenzone, avobenzone, octinoxate, and octocrylene.
  4. Consider your skin type, if you have oily or acne-prone skin, look for a lightweight formula that won’t clog pores.
  5. Before buying a natural sunscreen, read reviews from other customers to see what they liked and didn’t like about the product.
By following these guidelines, you can enjoy the sun safely and without harming your skin or the environment. Don’t forget to reapply every 2 hours when you are staying out for a few hours.
