Organic and Natural Sunscreens ~ Protect your Health

Updated on May 26, 2014

Organic Sunscreen

It is very important to wear a quality, natural and/or organic sunscreen.

The reason for choosing a natural and/or organic sunscreen is because, it is applied directly on the skin and remains there for long periods of time, and can be absorbed into your blood stream, due to dailly usage every day, all summer long.

The importance of using a good quality all natural sunscreen is to protect your health.

Your skin is the most important and vital part of your body.

It is the largest organ of your body.

It is a vital covering and protector for the essential organs of the body.

Healthy skin is the representation of a healthy body.

If you are exposed to sun for long periods of time, you may get skin cancer, pre-mature aging, wrinkles, blemishes, age spots and moles on the skin.

Importance of Sunscreen

The importance of applying sunscreen is to protect you from the excessive ultraviolet radiation, that can affect your immune system.

Titanium dioxide sunscreens helps in the reduction of skin inflammation and darkening.

The importance of applying sunscreens includes preventing sunburns and inflammations that could permanently damage the surface of your skin.

The best sunblocks are chemical-free and made from the purest natural ingredients, which protects your skin from sun and the damages it may cause.

Good sun protection is essential and important for both children and adults.

Sunscreen Application

You should apply sunscreen to your skin after properly washing your face.

Your skin should be cleansed and moisturized before getting protected.

The recommended sunscreen for the skin is SPF 15, which works effectively on the skin for protection from the sun and ultraviolet rays.

One should determine their skin type and see if SPF 15 sunscreen is the proper coverage for their skin type.

If your skin is sensitive and irritable to chemical compounds, you should purchase a simple natural or organic sunscreen to avoid allergic reactions.

Natural sunblock

Natural Sunblocks provides a natural and effective barrier for your skin against environmental damage such as harmful rays from the sun.

The natural ingredients that organic sunscreens contain are minerals that keeps your skin physically shielded from the sun in a natural way.

These ingredients are not only powerfully effective as sun protection to your skin. Each natural ingredient has various nourishing, moisturizing and soothing ingredients.

By using natural/organic or mineral sunscreen one can ensure that their skin is protected from harsh environments and remains healthy because of the nourishing natural ingredients.

Baby-Safe Sunscreens

The need for healthy, protected skin is very important when considering the correct products to use on your children or baby’s delicate skin.

There are huge selections of baby-safe natural and organic sunscreens for you to choose from.

Most people have realized the dangers of the sun's harmful rays on both adults and children.

There are products designed especially for kids, such as sunscreen lotions in fun colors.

Children enjoy these sunscreens, because they get coated in a crazy color and parents like them because they can actually see the parts of the skin that requires additional protection.


Sunscreen Usage

Using sunscreens correctly is a very important factor in protecting the skin.

You must exercise caution when you are exposed to sun rays.

Remember never to get burned, that is the key.

Using Natural and Organic sunscreens are healthy measures to avoid sunburns and skin damages.

      Cheryl, I also read that it's important to check that your sunscreen doesn't contain an ingredient called "oxybenzone." There's some debate, but some scientists think it may be harmful to your health.

      Thanks for the useful information!

      Nell,

      I think it is a personal choice. I use sunscreen all year long, because of the harmful environmental chemicals. It doesn't hurt. Thanks for commenting on my organic and natural sunscreen hubpage.

      Hi, I use a factor 15 even in winter! but then I read somewhere that you should only use it on your face in winter as your body needs to recieve vitamin D from the sun, but you are so right we should always use it in the summer months, cheers nell

      Peggy, Thanks for the wonderful comment on organic and natural sunscreens. We are much wiser today in protecting our skin from the suns harmful UV rays.

      When I was young, we purposely used to lie in the sun to get a tan. Now we know better. Each and every sunburn that damages the skin leaves long lasting damage from wrinkles up to and including cancers. Suntan lotions have come a long way in that time and thanks for bringing attention to organic and natural sunscreens to help protect the largest organ in our bodies and therefore our health. Nice job, Cheryl.
