The only SAFE sunscreen I've ever found--Dr. Mercola's Sunscreen

It's that time of year again and most everyone will be out and about in the sun! Contrary to popular belief, the sun is not as dangerous as everyone makes it out to be. The sun is extremely  good for you and can even help fight symptoms of depression; however, you have to be cautious and know how much sun exposure you can handle before you burn. Burning and the chemicals in your sunscreen is what is dangerous!

A majority of Americans have extremely low levels of vitamin D, which is why we need to get out from behind the desk and get about 15-20 mins of sun (WITHOUT sunscreen) to help increase our levels naturally. I would also suggest taking vitamin D3 supplements all year long (50,000 IU a week in the winter time and 10,000-20,000 IU a week in the summer).

DR.MERCOLA'S sunscreen is the only sunscreen I have ever found that literally has no preservatives or harmful chemicals in it. It is around $18 and lasts forever. Dr. Mercola's sunscreen is the only sunscreen I would recommend to people ESPECIALLY for children!!! Remember, when you are out in the sun you are sweating, which opens your pores and all of the harmful chemicals are absorbed quickly into you and your children's skin!

Ingredients: Dr. Mercola Sunscreen Ingredients (SPF 15)

Toss your sunscreen in the trash if it has any of these harmful chemicals listed on Dr. Mercola's website: 
  • Para amino benzoic acid…
  • Octyl salicyclate…
  • Avobenzone…
  • Oxybenzone…
  • Cinoxate…
  • Padimate O…
  • Dioxybenzone…
  • Phenylbenzimidazole…
  • Homosalate…
  • Sulisobenzone…
  • Menthyl anthranilate…
  • Trolamine salicyclate…
  • Octocrylene…
Potentially harmful chemicals such as dioxybenzone and oxybenzone (two chemicals I just mentioned) are some of the most powerful free radical generators known to man! 

MY PERSONAL REVIEW:

I've used Dr. Mercola's sunscreen for years and it is by far the best sunscreen I have every used. It really blocks the sun, so if you want to get sun I would recommend laying out without sunscreen for at least 30 minutes and then apply it. This will allow you to get a base tan because this sunscreen works REALLY WELL!

The only thing people don't like about the sunscreen is that it leaves a white film on your skin when it is applied. This is good because you can tell where you applied the sunscreen and when it has come off; however, some people just don't want a white film left behind on their skin. My opinion, it's worth it if you are protecting yourself from sunburn, toxins, and chemicals!!!!

Go get some today!!!!! :)
