Sunscreen

Daily sunscreen does protect you from the sun, slowing down wrinkles, brown spots, and premature aging, by blocking harmful rays from penetrating the skin and triggering skin disorders. This helps prevent skin cancer, especially melanoma, which is life-threatening especially for women in their 20's.


When searching for products I always make sure I carry ones with the MOST beneficial ingredients, that truly make a difference to your skin and are economically reasonable.

TIZO IS ONE! I have been carrying Tizo for years and includes all of the most important ingredients necessary for sun protection, the proper SPF strength along with lightness in texture.

The Importance of Reef Friendly Sunscreen

Just like the importance of ingredients in skincare, it is equally important that what we use is not harmful to the environment. Healthy coral reefs are one of the most valuable ecosystems in the world. Chemicals found in sunscreen threaten the health of coral reefs. I always make sure that the sunscreen s and other products I sell do not add to this very serious problem.

 

  • How sunscreen chemicals can affect marine life:

    • Green Algae: Can impair growth and photosynthesis.

    • Coral: Accumulates in tissues. Can induce bleaching, damage DNA, deform young, and even kill.

    • Mussels: Can induce defects in young.

    • Sea Urchins: Can damage immune and reproductive systems, and deform young.

    • Fish: Can decrease fertility and reproduction, and cause female characteristics in male fish.

    • Dolphins: Can accumulate in the tissue and be transferred to young.

 

 

Consider sunscreen without chemicals that can harm marine life, seek shade between 10 am & 2 pm, and use Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) sun-wear.
