Most of the people around you and probably even your doctors are telling you to use sunscreen every time you get in the sun. They all say it stops cancer, and that’s what you think too right? But now there’s proof that, surprisingly, sunscreen actually causes cancer.
Sunscreen has many toxic chemicals that may increase the risk of cancer. The FDA says the cosmetics with cancerous chemicals are supposed to have a warning sign, but, obviously, it’s not enforced very well. Other cosmetics, such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, lotion, and just about every other modern skin products usually have harmful chemicals, whether they cause cancer or not.
Another thing is vitamin D. Sunscreen blocks out the sun rays. That’s a good thing right? NO. While blocking out the sun rays it also keeps the skin from absorbing the all-important vitamin D. Vitamin D helps the absorption of calcium, and helps you stay in a good mood, and it’s also fat soluble(eat good fat!). If you do not have enough vitamin D, you have a much greater chance of cancer and other health problems.
Basically sunscreen should be avoided. If you get sunburns when you go out in sunlight for a few hours, it can be fixed- naturally. It’s not very hard, all you do is go out in the sun everyday for 5 minutes, then 10, then 15, and so on. You should wear shorts and a tank top or t-shirt. You will build up the natural protection from the sun on your skin, and won’t get sunburned! Simple!
Overall, you do not need sunscreen everyday or even sometimes; it makes your skin weak, causes cancer and many other health problems. So make it a goal to enjoy the sun everyday!
