Letโ€™s start by getting one thing straight. ๐’๐”๐๐’๐‚๐‘๐„๐„๐ ๐‚๐€๐ ๐’๐€๐•๐„ ๐˜๐Ž๐”๐‘ ๐‹๐ˆ๐…๐„.โฃ Whether you choose chemical (oxybenzone, avobenzone, etc) or physical sunscreen ingredients (titanium dioxide, zinc) it's the protection that matters.โฃ ๐—–๐—›๐—˜๐— ๐—œ๐—–๐—”๐—Ÿ sunscreens act like a sponge and ๐—”๐—•๐—ฆ๐—ข๐—ฅ๐—• ultraviolet rays.โฃ ๐—ฃ๐—›๐—ฌ๐—ฆ๐—œ๐—–๐—”๐—Ÿ sunscreens ๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—ข๐—–๐—ž the ultraviolet rays. โฃ There is much research happening around the chemicals used in sunscreens and how they can affect the human body. While this information is very important, I often see people forgetting to mention that ๐—ฆ๐—จ๐—ก๐—ฆ๐—–๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—˜๐—ก ๐—ฆ๐—”๐—ฉ๐—˜๐—ฆ ๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ฉ๐—˜๐—ฆ.โฃ The risk of not wearing sunscreen (skin cancers & melanoma) greatly outweighs the risk of using chemical filters.โฃ

They can help to steer you in the right direction.โฃ
