Now that it is summer time and families are spending more time outside I wanted to make sure that everyone has the essential knowledge of how to stay healthy during the summer. The summer is the best time to get the Vitamin D our bodies so desperately need, however many people block the absorption of that Vitamin D with dangerous sun screens.
They do this in fear of cancer from sunburn, which is a valid concern due to the fact than more than 2 million people are diagnosed with skin every year. Despite greater awareness and sunscreen use being higher than ever, skin cancer is still on the rise.
Why Do People Who Use Sunscreen Still Get Skin Cancer?
This fact has lead to multiple studies, which indicate that the wrong type of sunscreen may be doing more harm than good.
To be safe there are a few ingredients you want to avoid:
- oxybenzone (as well as pretty much anything ending in –one)
- retinyl palminate.
All of these ingredients have been linked to cell damage, free radicals and cancer.
What Are Healthy Alternatives to Toxic Sunscreen?
The answer is simple, use more natural mineral-based sunscreens with zinc oxide. Not only does zinc oxide provide complete UVA & UVB coverage, it also has anti-inflammatory and other healing properties.
As always safety for you and your family comes down to choices. Checking the ingredients in anything that goes in and on your body is always a first step.
When Is It Safe To Be In The Sun Without Sunscreen?
Another important factor in sun exposure is knowing when to go out in the sun. The most dangerous rays of the sun are between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.. If you can avoid those times you will be less likely to be sun burnt and will be healthier as a result.
A simple 20-30 minutes in the sun each day during the early morning or evening will allow you to get the essential levels of Vitamin D the body needs to be healthy. During that daily time in the sun that is the perfect time to get your Max T3 workout in for the day!How To Stay Fit, Happy, #Sunburn Free & Healthy During The Summer #Cancer Click To Tweet
