Best Sunscreens and Toxic Ones to Avoid

My-Post-5

It’s no secret that the sun provides all sorts of health benefits, including helping our bodies manufacture vital vitamin D. With beach season right around the corner, though, many people are looking for the best sunscreens to cut their risk of sun overexposure, sunburns and possibly skin cancer.

The issue?

All sunscreens are not created equally. In fact, a spring report from Environmental Working Group (EWG) found that 72 percent of sunscreens tested contain harmful ingredients or inadequate sun protection.

This is EWG’s 10th annual Guide to Sunscreens report, and the results show that while there have been major improvements over the last decade, the vast majority of sunscreens available for purchase in the U.S. still contain toxic chemicals or fail to offer enough protection against ultraviolet rays.

It’s important to note that there is no perfect sunscreen. Many contain harmful chemicals, and even mineral-based ones often contain nanoparticles, minute ingredients that can cross the blood-brain barrier and also harm aquatic life. (1) EWG rated 750 sunscreens, more than 500 SPF-labeled moisturizers and 100 lip products based on safety and how well they actually worked, helping consumers find (while not perfect) better options.

So what are the best sunscreens out there?

Let’s take a look.

Live Longer and Feel Younger with Stacey Chillemi (Video)

live longer

Want To Feel Younger than Your Age?

At some point it hits you.

Usually in your thirties.

If you’re lucky, not until your forties.

You start to feel your age.

You can’t pull all-nighters anymore. More than a couple of drinks hits you like a freight train. You don’t bounce back as quickly from injury. You’d rather sit and watch than play in the game.

Is this what you’re stuck with?

Is life downhill from here?

Stacey Chillemi doesn’t think so. She’s the author of The Ultimate Guide to Living Longer and Feeling Younger. Stacey has been coaching people on how to get healthier for over two decades and sharing the resources she’s discovered on TheCompleteHerbalGuide.com, one of the largest natural health websites in the U.S.

In this YBTV interview, she talks to us about what we should be eating, how much we should be sleeping, and how we should be caring for our skin and hair.

The Complete Herbal Guide

What You’ll Learn

Stacey Chillemi doesn’t want you to spend a fortune on cosmetics.

You don’t need to cover up those wrinkles or dye away those gray hairs. Stop masking aging. Start treating it instead.

A few simple things make us age faster:

  • Poor nutrition
  • Poor sleep
  • Toxins
  • Stress

When you start eating better, sleeping better, detoxifying, and managing stress, you’ll start to feel (and look) SO much better.

So let’s start with the first element of aging…

Anti-Aging Nutrition

A lot of people don’t realize, but what we put in our bodies has a huge impact on how we feel and how we look. The different foods we eat affect our food, our energy, our bodies, a lot of different things we’re not aware of.”

Stacey isn’t a fan of the word “diet.”

“People don’t like to be told what to eat and what to do,” she says.

She encourages everyone to simply eat healthily. That means fruits, vegetables, fish for those omega 3s, the right proteins, and lots of greens.

Although you want to get the bulk of your nutrition through whole foods, supplements can be useful. For example, even though blueberries have antioxidants in them, you’d have to eat a lot of them in order to get the amount you need.

Stacey recommends vitamin D, as it’s hard to get enough vitamin D from the sun. Vitamin D supplements work wonders for the skin. They keep skin moist and youthful, whereas dryness can cause lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin E is another great supplement for the skin. It can speed healing and treat eczema. Only take it once in a while, though. You don’t want to take too much.

She also recommends biotin and B vitamins for thicker, longer hair that doesn’t go gray as fast.

Sleep to Stay Young

“We’re always on the go-go-go. Most people don’t know how to relax,” Stacey says.

That carries over into nighttime, where we’re sleeping less and getting poorer quality sleep.

Making it worse, we produce less melatonin as we age, so it gets harder to fall asleep.

Not getting your full 8 hours means your body doesn’t have enough time to renew itself. You can find yourself waking up with bags under your lines and visible wrinkles. You may even find yourself getting sick more easily.

To get better quality sleep, try taking magnesium and potassium before bed. They’ll relax the body and make you feel sleepy.

You can also use lavender essential oil on your pillow or in a diffuser. Stacey enjoys a lavender Epsom salt bath before bed.

Other options include taking melatonin or a few drops of passionflower, also known as “the natural tranquilizer.”

Tackling Toxins

“If [you] can detoxify [your] body on a consistent level, you’ll see a difference in your energy; you’ll see a difference in your skin. You’ll see a difference in the way you feel overall. Your metabolism will increase. You might experience some weight loss,” Stacey says.

That’s why she recommends detoxifying every couple of months.

She recommends milk thistle, to help the digestive system, as well as turmeric and dandelion tea. You can also increase the fiber in your diet or try a whole-body cleanse.

The Aging Effects of Stress

“A lot of times you can age quicker just by the amount of stress that you have on your shoulders,” Stacey says. “So sometimes you have to figure out ways to decrease the stress in your life. It’s easy to say, but very hard to do.”

She suggests taking 15 minutes in the morning to meditate, do a little yoga, or practice relaxation techniques. Try to find ways to simplify your life.

Attitude really is everything. Your mind can make you feel your age—or half your age. Stacey concludes:

Positive thinking is the key to feeling great and feeling younger.”
