We use sunscreens to protect us from sunlight, but is your sunscreen safe to use? Are you sure that it really is not causing any problems? Maybe you are pretty certain that your sunscreen is perfect, but you may be wrong. You will be amazed to understand the alarming data given by Environment Working Group (EWG). Believe it or not, only 25% of sunscreens can protect us from the dangerous UVA and UVB rays! You need to be frightened. Today, we have been very worried about using sunscreen, but not worried about using proper sunscreen which is really bad. Below are some important factors that you must know if you use sunscreen. Remember them to ensure that you could get the very best product next time.

Your Sunscreen Could Have Retinol or Vitamin A: Plenty of sunscreens do have retinol or vitamin A which is very dangerous. It could create tumors! Don't expose your skin to sunlight up to one week if your sunscreen contains retinol or vitamin A.

Think of SPF: SPF is a very common term for sunscreen users. As a sunscreen user, you should be aware of that one can get rid of UVB ray, although not UVA ray. Many manufactures exploit the term SPF. They manufacture products with high SPF and sell them claiming that they are good for your skin which is not right. If you remain outside knowing that the highly rated sunscreen with high SPF can protect you from dangerous sunlight, then you are wrong. Sunscreens can not defend UVA ray well. For this reason, any sunscreens with SPF higher than 50 should be avoided.

Do not Overlook Oxybenzone: This is another chemical that you should give a whole lot of attention to. It could get mixed with your blood and may also cause reproductive problems, thyroid problems, etc. The truth is, how devastating it may be. I bet you never thought that the sunscreen could damage your reproductive system. Unfortunately, more than 50% of sunscreens have this dangerous chemical. Therefore, always read labels before you decide to buy any sunscreens. Moreover, avoid benzophenone or benzophenone-3; they're all the same.

Avoid Sunscreens within the Form of Spray, Powder, or Towelette: If any chemicals act like hormones, and you could inhale it, then they should be avoided. Another disadvantage is that you might not get adequate amount if your sunscreen is in the type of powder, spray, or towelette. You will be pleased to know that after 2013, there will be no sunscreens in the type of powder or towelette.
