Is Your Sunscreen Damaging Your Cells? 

The ingredients in sunscreens come in 2 forms:

1. Mineral filters

2. Chemical filters

Each one provides a different mechanism for blocking the sun to protect our skin.

The most common sunscreens that you will find on store shelves are chemical filters. These brands most often include a combination of these ingredients:

oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate

On the other hand, mineral sunscreens use zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide.

So what is so harmful about these?

1. The chemicals penetrate skin and reach our cells, tissues and causes a tired and toxic liver. Remember, our liver is in charge of how efficiently we lose weight and it also governs our moods.

2. They disrupt the hormone system and cause estrogen dominance which is a real issue I see in my clients every day! Do you suffer from PMS? Uterine Fibroids? Migraines? or are you a male with belly fat? It isn’t a “beer belly” it is an “estrogen belly.” All of these are symptoms of estrogen dominance.

3. It affects the reproductive and thyroid systems.

4. Overuse on children has been shown to permanently alter behavior and reproductive development.

5. Allergic reactions on the skin.

6. Not to mention the damaging affects when you or your children inhale those spray sunscreens! Yikes!

Scared?! I was! I threw all of my store-bought sunscreen away and started using BeautyCounter!

BEAUTYCOUNTER has NO chemical filters!

I adore this new product called Dew Skin Moisturizing Coverage SPF 20! It is a must-have for a beautiful summer face and today you have the chance of WINNING IT!

    I’d love to win this so I can see how it works on my skin because for the past 5 months I’ve been trying to figure out what I’ve been allergic to around my eyes…I’ve narrowed it down to my sunblock & bb cream. I’ve been walking around with red itchy peeling circles around both eyes for too long! But I want to be able to protect my face & wear makeup! I think a future giveaway for foundation or tinted moisturizer would be awesome! 🙂

I am just trying to be a good mom and protect my children from the sun and instead I make them suffer! I love mineral sunscreens myself and won’t make that mistake again for my baby. Next giveaway should be kids bath soap or shampoo!

    Staying covered up works tremendously. Shoulders to the elbow, thighs to the knees even for some, & of course the face! Look at the sahara and other desert dwellers. I cant be out 10 min without burning. You without blonde hair and blue or green eyes, be THANKFUL. Its hard being so light-skinned.
