Kristal Moffett - Sunscreen
As I begin to include more time outdoors with the nicer weather, I have been thinking a lot about sunscreens and their benefits. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, my Vitamin D was really low. Not surprising as I was always slathered with sunscreen.
I stepped back and began to wonder if I really needed to wear as much sunscreen as I had been and if maybe a little bit of sun might be ok. I began to wonder if my sunscreen was doing me and my family more harm than it was doing good, but who is to really say?
There are so many different opinions by so many different agencies. Not wearing sunscreen at all didn’t seem like a very smart choice. So I looked for a chemical free alternative, and I now only use it if we are going to be directly in the sun for long amounts of time. There are some really great sunscreens on the market that are very low in toxicity. Check out Cancer Schmancer's guide to sun safety and make chemcial free choices for you and your family!
