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?

With the summer in full swing, you might be carrying that sunscreen as if it were a bottle of fresh water in the middle of the Death Valley. Whether you use an SPF in the form of a mist, a stick or a lotion, you might think that you need to cover up at all time to avoid sunburns, skin cancer and other nasty sun damage. Wearing sunscreen at all time is actually a mistake and under a few specific conditions, you should give your skin a break from SPF of all kinds, even the mineral ones.
