Enjoy the sun, play safe, and don't forget your sunscreen!
The beach is just around the corner and while your mind may be focused on getting your body ready for fun in the sun, it’s actually more important for you to make sure you’re fully prepared for the sun’s wrath on your skin.
Maybe you take the easy approach and go for the most affordable sunscreen or the one that’s SPF 50.
Really, sunscreen is more than just a number. Understanding the various ingredients and their effects on your skin is essential to garnering the best protection possible, beyond just avoiding the discomfort of a sun burn.
Keep this in mind: According to the Mayo Clinic, prolonged exposure to the sun’s UV rays is one of the leading risk factors for skin cancer.
So, take another peek at the sunscreen that’s been hibernating in your cabinet and consider the following. They could make a big difference in the long run.
Get Rid of Harsh Chemicals
Protecting your skin is important, but not at the cost of subjecting it to harsh chemicals like avobenzone, para-aminobenzoic acid (also known as PABA) and oxybenzone. There’s a reason those ingredients are hard to spell. Some of the ingredients included in common sunscreens have been linked to cell damage—the exact opposite effect you want to have on your skin when you’re trying to protect it.
But doesn’t the American Academy of Dermatology recommend choosing a sunscreen with avobenzone? Yes, but it wasn’t long ago that all the major sunscreens on the market also contained PABA. For experts in the field of dermatology field, that’s a really bad, four-letter word. Para-aminobenzoic (PABA) has been stricken from all reputable sunscreens because of its links to cell damage.
Isa SunGuard uses all-natural protecting ingredients to block UV rays from penetrating your skin. Why worry about what you’re spreading onto your body when you’re trying to keep it safe? Instead, choose the natural SPF-30 zinc oxide and titanium dioxide of Isa SunGuard to give you peace of mind.
Moisturizing Yet Waterproof Formula
Plus, who wants dry skin when you’re trying to relax at the beach? Now you don’t have to sacrifice the softness! Thanks to the moisture-rich combination of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in Isa SunGuard, you can protect your skin (even while enjoying activities in the water) and keep it smooth and moisturized at the same time.
The soothing ingredients of aloe vera, green tea and chamomile helps nourish all types of skin no matter the harsh conditions, meaning your skin will stay refreshed while blocking out harmful UV rays. All that without the greasy feeling or harsh smells that usually come with those mass-market sunscreens.
