SPF is something that we should all be applying on a daily basis with no excuses. Broad spectrum SPFs not only protect the skin from premature ageing, but shield it from skin damage that can lead to more serious concerns such as skin cancer. However, not all sun creams are equal when it comes to protecting your skin, with some ingredients traditionally found in sun creams and lotions causing irritation and damaging the skin's natural barrier.
Ingredients to avoid:
- Oxybenzone - an allergen and irritant to most skin types, this harmful ingredient can disrupt the natural hormone production in humans.
- Octinoxate - this is absorbed into the body and can disrupt hormone levels.
- Avobenzone - this may cause irritation to the eyes and can increase the damage of free-radicals on the skin.
