Don’t purchase a sunscreen based solely on an SPF number (it needs to be between 30 and 40) and the main ingredient should be zinc oxide. Chemical sunscreens breakdown very quickly and are absorbed in the body and don’t block out sufficient amounts of light in the ultraviolet A spectrum (the “wrinkle wavelength”).
Revoderm has developed several chemical-free micronized zinc oxide sunscreens as well as one for the lips. Micronized natural zinc oxide is the optimal UV filtering sunscreen ingredient.
The most natural form of sunscreens are Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. Make sure you protect your children under six months with hats and shades. Over 6 months use chemical free mineral sunscreens.
The most effective ways to prevent sunburn:
- Avoid the sun and stay in the shade between 10:00am-4:00pm
- Use protective clothing, wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses with 100% UV protection
- Use full broad spectrum (UVA and UVB) chemical free sunscreen like IMMUVEX and chemical free lip sunscreen ECLIPS
- Make sure you educate yourself and read the labels carefully and try to stay away from (Oxybenzone,Homosalate,Octarylene,Avobenzone,Mexoryl)
