Living in this balmy climate, most of us regularly apply SPF 30 broad-spectrum protection. But did you know that natural ingredients are playing a bigger role in today’s sun-care products?
MIGHTY MINERALS. An alternative to synthetic-based formulas, mineral sunscreens use highly reflective ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that offer natural sun protection.
hot tip: IF YOU HAVE ACNE-PRONE SKIN, GO WITH A MICRONIZED FORMULA, WHICH FEATURES TEENY-TINY MINERAL PARTICLES THAT WON’T CLOG YOUR PORES.
SKIN-NOURISHING INGREDIENTS. If you prefer the feel of more traditional sunscreens, opt for a formula packed with natural essential oils to keep your skin well nourished and hydrated. Avoid nasties like parabens and synthetic fragrances. Your skin will thank you later!
