We just planted our blueberry bushes and I am ready to fill my green house. This is a time of year that we love to be outdoors and lather up to protect ourselves from the sun. In our home we are using nothing more than zinc oxide!! Have you read the ingredients in your sunscreen? Scary stuff! The chemicals alone top the first 3 ingredients in most sunscreens. Yes, even some of the brands that tote to be “natural.” My thoughts are simply that if you wouldn’t eat those chemicals then consider that your skin absorbs up to 70% of the ingredients we place on it. If you wouldn’t eat those chemicals than think twice about putting it on your skin.
Sun screen can also block out the vital vitamin D that your body needs for proper thyroid function and for overall health of your immune system. If you live in the norther hemisphere consider your vitamin D levels as a part of your overall health. Better yet have your doctor check your vitamin D levels. For an authoritative approach and to learn more about important considerations of this important vitamin check out this extensive site.
