What Is A Natural SPF Moisturizer?

  • Sharebar

Out of all the good things you can do for your skin, one of the best doesn’t involve using skin care products. It’s to avoid sunburn.

Sunburn is just terrible for your skin, so you would assume then that the best thing you can do for your skin is to use sunscreen, and if you use a moisturizer that you would use an SPF moisturizer.

Sorry to bring bad news but SPF moisturizers have their problems, and so you may prefer to use a natural SPF moisturizer that moisturizes but doesnt risk damage to your skin.

What is the problem with sunscreens, or having an SPF factor in your moisturizer? Theres 2 things.

The first problem is that there are some experts convinced that long term use of sunscreens is dangerous and that the chemicals that are used to block the effects of those UV rays on your skin can cause cancer. The jury is out on it but were sufficiently scared by the possibility that we dont want to take the risk.

But there’s also another problem. If you really need sunscreen because you’re going to be out in the sun for a long time then you may really need it a few days a year.

But if you use an SPF moisturizer you use that sunscreen every single day. And 99% of the time you arent even going to go out in the sun.

See where the problem lies? If you use a sunscreen moisturizer then you multiply the risk massively. Hugely. You’re much better using a sunscreen only on days when you need it.

And you can also cause vitamin D deficiency by long term sunscreen use.

And it’s even possible to find natural SPF moisturizers that provide some sun protection from the effects of natural ingredients that happen to have some natural UV protective qualities with no chemical sunscreen.

A natural SPF moisturizer won’t give you sun protection as good as you can get from chemical sunscreens, but when you really need one use a chemical sunscreen.

Heres an example of a natural SPF moisturizer. Phytessence Wakame. This is an ingredient found in the worlds best natural skin care products, it comes from a particular form of seaweed found in Japan. And it has an ability to offer some natural sun protection. And there are other natural products that have a sun protective effect.

So you need, in my view, to avoid moisturizers with chemical sunscreens, and choose natural skin care products with no added chemical sunscreen. Its potentially dangerous and you dont need it anyway.

Just use sunscreen on days when you’re going to be out in the sun and will need it. And not only do you get the worlds best skin care products you also get
