Sunblock to keep the pain at bay


Sunblock to keep the pain at bay


Sunblock to keep the pain at bayAs many people know, the power of the sun is great for producing green energy, but can be harmful for human skin.  For sun worshippers who are hoping to hit the beach quite often this summer, the best thing they can do for their epidermis and the Earth is use eco-friendly sunblock.
A number of sunscreens have recently been reported to contain harmful chemicals. While many consumers use sunblock to prevent the risk of skin cancer, sunblocks that include vitamin A in their formulas may actually put an individual at a higher risk of developing skin tumors, the Environmental Working Group reported.
The EWG currently has a guide to safer sunscreens that consumers can find on the group's website, which beachgoers can use to find the most affordable and health-beneficial sunscreen. According to the source, most sunblocks marketed to babies and young children are the safest for adults, too.
According to Grist magazine, between 4,000 and 6,000 tons of sunscreen are going into the world's oceans annually, so choosing a healthy sunscreen can also assist the world's largest waterways in their health as well. Sunscreens with avobenzone provide some of the most mindful UVA protection, so consumers should keep their eye out for companies that use this, but not oxybenzone.
