warmer weather means SPFs
Warmer weather is here and that means SPF and exfoliators are needed even more!! I have linked my favorite, clean SPF sunscreens and exfoliators to help you get that sunscreen off! I don't love the feeling of getting out of the shower after a day at the beach and still feeling that sunscreen on myself! That's why I have both linked for you below!
WHY SAFER SUNSCREEN MATTERS
Many of the sunscreens on the market contain toxic chemicals that we put on our skin that are then absorbed into our skin. These ingredients can be linked to cancer, hormone disruption and can cause other skin allergens.
Some of these toxic chemicals include: benzene, oxybenzone, avobenzone. Do your research!
Over the past year, there have been MANY articles come out saying the FDA has called for recalling sunscreen because benzene (a known carcinogen) was found in over 70 sunscreen products including Banana Boat, Sun Bum, Neutrogena, CVS Health, Coppertone, Walgreens brand, Babyganics and even Elta MD... WHAT.
Other, safer alternatives besides Beautycounter: Blue Lizard, Think Baby/Think Sport, All Good, Supergroup, 365 Sunscreen
