Choosing a Natural Sunscreen

Are you ready to choose the right product for you? This checklist will help you out:

  1. Look at the active ingredients. You're specifically looking for zinc oxide, either alone or with titanium dioxide. Zinc oxide gives broad-­spectrum SPF, so it will protect you against both UVA and UVB rays.
  2. Choose an SPF of 30 or higher. You'll want your SPF to be at least a 30. This ensures you get enough protection for a reasonable period of time.
  3. Take a look at the other ingredients if you're looking for all­-natural. There is no set standard for what constitutes "natural" for either cosmetics or for over-the-counter drugs. So, you'll have to do a little investigating. Just because a sunscreen has natural active ingredients does not in itself make the sunscreen 100% natural.
  4. Decide if you want a micronized or non-nanoparticles product. A product labeled micronized absorbs more fully and leaves little opacity on the skin. On the other hand, non-micronized (non­-nanoparticles) products will leave a white film across the surface of the skin that you can't rub in.

With these in mind, choosing what is best for you will be a little easier!
