Summer might be over, but sunlight is not going anywhere: the sun will still rise and set, bathing us with natural light and who says daylight says UV. And particularly UV-A.
The time of year, the type of weather (clouds or no clouds), where you live and where you spend your time (indoors or outdoors) impact the amount of sunlight you’re exposed to, and consequently the amount of UV radiation and the potential damages. The closer you move towards the equator, the higher the levels of UV radiation. And those who think that being inside eliminates risks, they are wrong.
For those who think darker skins need sunscreen as much as others to protect against the nasty UV and skin cancer, this is wrong. Darker skins shouldn't use traditional sunscreen, even less daily. Let us explain.
Using sunscreen every day has not proven its efficacy in protecting against skin cancer (otherwise why would skin cancer be on the rise when sunscreen sales keep increasing?) and it may have health consequences overtime that we don’t know about yet. This is exactly why Skinergies was created: to provide an alternative to sunscreen for daily use. We're already passively exposed to too many health hazards, why would we keep applying lotions every day that we know are directly messing with our hormons and our health in general? WHY?
In the meantime, this is an interesting article by Sandee LaMotte for CNN... food for thoughts - READ FULL ARTICLE
Regular, reasonable and unprotected (ie without sunscreen) exposure to sunlight has many health benefits, starting with vitamin D synthesis and melanin stimulation, and could represent lower risks of developing skin cancer. Unusual and controversial? Maybe, but it is not us at Skinergies saying it, it’s SCIENTISTS.
