Dermatologists are always talking about how crucial sunscreen is, but have you given much thought to how it protects you? Because of how mineral sunscreen works, you may associate it with a thick white cast—like lifeguards with their bright-white noses. Plus, experts say mineral sunscreens are great for sensitive skin since they tend to cause less irritation.
For a product that has so many wonderful qualities — protecting us from sun damage! preventing fine lines and spots! — sunscreen sure does come with a lot of bummer side effects.

Broken record or not, here is the truth: wearing sun protection is the most important thing you can do for your skin - not just during the summer months or when you're spending an extended amount of time at the beach, but on a consistent basis. "This area is often overlooked and neglected, and we see a fair amount of skin cancer on the scalp," New York City-based dermatologist Marina Peredo, MD, told POPSUGAR. "The scalp skin being thinner and more vascular, especially as we age, scalp cancer can spread more readily and become more fatal as it can spread to the brain."
As moms, we all start our summers stocking up on sunscreen and grabbing slippery children for one more quick reapply before they cannonball into the pool. We select sun hats that maybe (hopefully!) the kids will keep on. We spend those glorious, warm, and sun-soaked months carting umbrellas and tents to the beach and wrestling […]
Anytime I'm headed to the beach, pool, or anywhere my skin may be exposed to sunlight for a long period of time, I always make sure to put on sunblock before walking out the door. While I know there are benefits to getting some sun - namely, that sunlight triggers the body to produce vitamin D, which is essential to overall health - I try not to take any chances with those damaging UV rays.
