Are you confused about sun protection and the often conflicting reports? We’re told to use sunscreen to protect against sun damage and prevent skin cancer, but we’re also told that the chemicals in sunscreen could be harmful. What should we do? Well, we may be right to be concerned about sun damage. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 2 million Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer every year, and the occurrences are actually increasing. However, many sunscreens could be causing harm; according to a study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 97 percent of Americans are contaminated with a widely-used chemical in sunscreens -- oxybenzone – which can cause allergic reactions, hormone disruption and cell damage.
Who doesn't want beautiful, smooth, glowing skin? Oh the time and money that goes into making it beautiful from the outside with lotions, potions, elixirs and make-up?! I know I used to do that and then some. And guess what I have found? The more I pay attention to my diet, the better my skin looks. I've traded lotions, potions, serums, scrubs and facials for a plant based, nutrient packed diet. Those lotions and potions can only reach the outermost layers of our skin. Whole food nutrition nurtures glowing skin from the inside out. Nourishing food nourishes our skin. Toxic, chemical laden, high fat, processed food damages our skin.
