Hot beach days are here to stay this summer! And the sun is said to be stronger now than it has ever been before, so it’s time to understand all the ways we can protect our skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays!
Growing up, I regularly saw my mother use baby oil to tan. She always had a solid tan, but the after effects were skin cancer on her forehead. This was thankfully removed in her 50s, but it was a good lesson for me to remember that I had to protect my skin when heading the beach in the summer.
As I age I try to put 70+ SPF over the counter sunscreen on my face. This helps me not burn.
The unfortunate reality is that over the counter sunscreens tend to be sloppy, annoying, and messy.
The good news is that you can use these 7 natural sunscreens to help protect your skin on your next beach day!
Here we go!
- Mineral Sunscreens block UV rays altogether with zinc oxide, titanium oxide, antioxidants or natural plant oils. Do not use mineral sunscreens that contain vitamin A as they yield a higher risk of skin cancer.
- Coconut Oil blocks out 20% of the sun’s rays.
- Aloe Vera blocks out 20% of the suns rays.
- Carrot Seed Oil is extracted from the carrot seeds by steam distilation, and its SPF rating is 38 to 40.
- Clothes that have a Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) over 50+ will help to naturally block harmful rays, along with hats.
- Red Raspberry Seed Oil is the best skin protection as it blocks UVB rays and has an SPF of 28.
- Foods rich in cartionoids like artichokes, tomatoes, almonds, walnuts, and salmon help to naturally protect your skin in the sun.
