Sun Screens

Lots of people worship Sun, but it does have harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Ideal sun screen provides protection against UVA and UVB and is also nontoxic and easy to use.
UVA can lead to Skin cancers including Melanoma and UVB causes skin burns.
Sun block SPF rating only blocks UVB and protects against the sunburn. It may not have any protection against harmful UVA which can cause cancer.
Retinol A is widely used as an anti-skin aging and acne clearing agent. It increases the sensitivity to sun and sun exposure should be limited when using this agent.
Do not use combination of bug sprays and sunscreen.
Sunscreen containing Zinc Oxide>100nm and Titanium Dioxide are considered safer. Sunscreen can contain harmful chemicals such as oxybenzone which can be absorbed into the body.
For information regarding safer sunscreen look at ewg website.
