I love living in Wisconsin – fresh cheese curds, lakes and trails, strawberries and pumpkins… we have all four seasons at their best: snowy winter, a colorful fall, beautiful blooming spring and a nice hot summer! And the best part – Summer is almost here! It means Wakanda Waterpark will open its doors and the biking trails will once again be filled with nature enthusiasts.
Whether you are planning on spending your time outside by a cool pool or in the garden – we all know that Sunscreen is a must!
Please remember to wear sunscreen!
On a serious not like any other skin care product, sunscreen is not always safe. On the back of most spray sunscreens you can find a warning that says keep out of reach of children and to get medical help if it is swallowed or inhaled, as it can be harmful or fatal. Katie, the “Wellness Mama” made a great article about the dangers of sunscreen. She states “Most sunscreens contain toxic ingredients or endocrine disrupting chemicals that in many cases may actually promote skin cancer growth and free radical production in the body. In fact, in the years since sunscreen use began, skin cancer rates have actually risen, and a 2007 document from the FDA stated that: “The FDA is not aware of data demonstrating that sunscreen use alone helps prevent skin cancer” In fact, many reports show that most sunscreens actually raise skin cancer risk.
Even natural, commercially available sunscreens often have toxic ingredients!
