Let’s begin by BUSTING the MYTH of SPF.
SPF simply means “sun protection factor” and should not be the only thing to look at when looking for a sunscreen. In fact, it probably should be the LAST thing to consider! I know this goes against the grain with some of us, but truthfully, SPF is not NEAR as important as the active ingredient!
If you have a SPF 50 sunscreen that is based on a chemical, then you are getting a false sense of protection, and your skin is absorbing all the harmful rays of the sun. These chemicals numb the top layer of skin cells, so you can’t feel the burn you’re getting!! This in turn promotes cancer, premature aging and brown spots (hyper pigmentation) on the skin.
You must have a physical sunscreen, one with Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide, which reflect the sun’s rays off the skin, while a chemical sunscreen on the skin absorbs the sun’s rays. See the difference?
