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.
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.
Vitamin D deficiency affects nearly 85% of people during winter months. Recently, researchers have found mushrooms to be an excellent source of vitamin D2, as they absorb and retain the sunshine vitamin after exposure to the sun. While it won’t dramatically change your mood or contribute to stronger and healthier bones, eating more mushrooms could be a great vitamin D food supplement and just what you need to get you through winter.
