Sunscreen, Naturally

by New Frontiers News&Events on June 24, 2013

Protection from the sun is something we tend to forget about. Summertime means playing outdoors, working in the garden, enjoying our beautiful surroundings. It’s also a time to take special care of you and your family’s skin. New Frontiers carries a wide selection of effective and healthy sunscreens that help prevent sun damage, without harmful side effects.

Make sure to use a physical barrier sunscreen (sunscreen not absorbed through your skin). The active ingredients are the minerals zinc oxide and/or titanium oxide. These types of sunscreens are very effective in blocking both UVB and UVA sun rays and are considered to be the safest. Select water resistant, SPF 30 creams that are free of sulfates, parabens and phthalates. This year consider a product that is also gluten-free, cruelty-free, and offered in biodegradable packaging. For the children in your life, or for those with sensitive skin, we also carry unscented, hypo-allergenic formulas.

Avoid chemical barrier sunscreens (sunscreen absorbed through your skin) that most often contain oxybenzone.

For a comprehensive guide to sunscreens, visit the Environmental Working Group website at www.ewg.org.

And don’t forget to rehydrate your skin after a day in the sun. We also carry an assortment of nourishing and moisturizing after-sun lotions that are chock full of natural antioxidants and aloe vera. Visit our Wellbeing department for the perfect sun care protection for every member of your family.

New Frontiers offers a variety of safe, quality suncare products for the entire family. Selected varieties are on sale all summer long.
