We’ve talked about how important sun safety is for preventing skin cancer and signs of premature aging, but how do you know which sunscreen is best?
There are two main types of sunscreen out there: physical blockers and chemical blockers. Physical sunscreens contain mineral ingredients, like zinc oxide, which sit on the skin and deflect harmful UV rays. On the other hand, chemical sunscreens absorb UV rays. Chemical sunscreens often contain endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) which mimic our natural hormones and can cause hormonal imbalance. EDCs have also been linked to thyroid disease, cancer, birth defects, and infertility. Make sure to look at the labels closely and trash any lotions that contains these ingredients:
-Octinoxate (Octyl methoxycinnamate)
Opt for mineral-based sunscreens that contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, as they sit on top of your skin and can be gentler to the body. Inactive ingredients that are safe include aloe vera, coconut oil, or vitamin E.

Please follow along with me on this journey of discovery as I share with you my brush of madness with exquisite clarity. Luckily, I was never a quick fix-it junkie where I said no to many suggestions from board certified or certifiable doctors because I felt it in my soul that it was merely a banaide being placed on my issues. The names of certain doctors have been changed because frankly, I don’t want to be sued for proven their lack in their field.
Hippocrates was right when he said: Let they food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.
