Summer is just around the corner, so let’s talk about sunscreen.
It is so important to protect yourself against the sun by using a proper factor.
But you have to go further. Have you ever stopped to think about the damage your sun cream can do to the corals and the fish in the ocean? When sun lashes from your body into the ocean, it can accelerate coral bleaching. That is why it is important to purchase a good sun cream which is coral friendly and which leaves no harmful substances behind. Not for the environment, but also not for you.
Always buy mineral sunscreens! They are so much better than chemical suncreens, for both you and the environment.
When you apply sunscreen a few times a day, you probably do not realize that you also breathe in potential harmful substances , or you don’t reflect on the fact that while applying it to your lips, you effectively are eating harmful particles.
Therefore, it is not only important for the seas and oceans that we use harmless products, but also and foremost for yourself!
Extra tip: try to avoid sprays to make sure that neither you nor your environment are affected by the micro sized harmful substances .
