What you apply on your skin is as important as what you put in your mouth.
If you are on a health and fitness journey, it is easy to focus on the food you are filling your body and exercising. But what is often overlooked is caring for your skin.
Summer is here which means more pool time with the kids, beach holidays and outdoor exercise and playtime. Wow!
Most of us know how bad the UV rays are for us, so we are ever used to taking and applying sunscreen outside… but are we using the best type for our skin?
Here’s what you want to see:
Mineral-based formulas (not chemical – read below for why this is so important)
Must be zinc oxide
UVA and UVB rays should be avoided which increases the lifespan of skin cells’ DNA and increases the risk of cancer.
Bone: Water and sweat resistance for a period of time
Bone 2: No parabens or fragrances
The reason you want a mineral-based formula is that chemical formulas soak into your skin and absorb the sun’s rays, as they have already entered your body. Mineral sunscreens act like billions of tiny mirrors on the top of your skin that penetrates their body before the sun’s rays re-acquire them. It is very easy to see here that mineral is the way to go!
Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen is our go-to family sunscreen! We use active formulas, but there are also sensitive, baby, baby, face, and sports formulas. It has all of the above 6 reasons and is recommended by a dermatologist for 20 years. One of the best features of the Blue Lizard Australian sunscreen is its bottle. It actually changes from white to blue in UV light! Watch this video:
