Sunlight is healing, pure life force and free energy!
And you know what? It is also good for the skin.
However having a sensitive skin and getting burnt full power is not fun that’s true – in this case some moderation on the time spent on the sun or physical protection might come useful indeed.
But before you run to the shop to get one of the “sweet tropics” smelling sunscreens consider one thing:
The most common sunscreens on the market contain chemical UV filters.
These filters often include a combination of two to six of those kind of ingredients (oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate) which are messing with hormones and cause skin-related allergies and cancer.
What is a good solution then?
Natural ingredients of course…
Zinc oxide is a mineral filter and it is brilliant for creating a physical layer on the surface on the skin without getting absorbed and getting into the bloodstream.
It creates a barrier between your delicate skin and rays of sun. Depending on the ratio in the cream it can give SPF up to 50 or more.
Then there are the plant based butters and oils with SPF 5-8: Cocoa butter, coconut oil, almond oil, raspberry seed oil etc.
Go with what feels best for your skin – it might be not using sunscreen at all as well as feeling the necessity of giving it some protection either with wearing something light to cover your skin or applying a product that protects it.
