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
A growing number of experts support the positive health effects of sunlight itself, with the implication that perhaps current sun exposure guidelines may be too rigid or even harmful. When sunlight as a whole is demonized, we at Skinergies believe in photoadaptation and narrow down to incidental sun exposure, that we should worry about.
Because symptoms are similar, telling the difference between windburn and sunburn can be difficult. Skin-damaging UV rays cause sunburn, while cold and windy weather causes windburn. Sunburn poses a long-term health risk, and may even cause skin cancer. While windburn is harmless in the long-term, but still leaves your skin red and irritated after a day of hiking, skiing, or even just walking in the park.
Winter sun skin damage affects many people as they simply don’t understand UVA radiation. While sunburn-causing UVB rays get most of the headlines, UVA is harmful too. If you don’t protect your skin during the winter, you may experience skin damage that leads to photoaging. No matter the season, even low levels of the sun’s radiation adds up over time and can cause harm to our winter-weakened skin. So always remain sun smart, especially under the winter’s sun.
