#MakeUpMonday Tip: How to Create a Natural Contour
Are you ready for Spring Break?
• Skin cancer, often overlooked in our current “tanning culture,” is a real public health threat.
• During their lifetimes, 40%-50% of Americans who live to 65 will be diagnosed with at least one of two skin cancer tumors.
HOW TO FIND SAFER SUNSCREEN
• Many sunscreens use chemical sunblockers like oxybenzone, which soaks through skin, can trigger allergic skin reactions, and may be a hormone disruptor. Look for mineral sunscreens, like our Protect All Over Sunscreen, Protect Stick Sunscreen, Protect Lip Balm and Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer, which use non-nano zinc oxide—an effective, natural, and safer mineral sunblocker.
• Prioritize broad-spectrum sunscreens.
• Find water-resistant brands.
WHAT TO AVOID
• Ingredients like oxybenzone and vitamin A (retinyl palmitate)
• Sunscreens with added insect repellent
• Anything above SPF 50, which can give a false sense of security and has unclear added sun protection
WHAT ELSE CAN YOU DO
• Make sure you’re not using sunscreen as a way to prolong your hours in the sun.
• Wear clothing with SPF, like rash guards, hats, and sunglasses.
• Avoid getting a sunburn—especially children. It’s a significant risk factor in developing skin cancer later in life.
• Read and share EWG’s recently released annual sun safety report.
