One may be under the impression that all sunscreens are healthy. They shield the skin from harmful UV rays, so how could they be unhealthy?
However, there are two kinds of sunscreens – chemical and mineral (physical) sunscreens. Chemical sunscreens penetrate and are absorbed by the skin, whereas mineral sunscreens create a physical barrier and reflect the sun like a mirror to protect exposed skin.
Mineral sunscreens, like Naturals Suncare, use active mineral ingredients such as zinc oxide and titanium oxide, and since they do not penetrate, mineral sunscreens do not cause irritation to the skin.
Suncare Central offer natural and organic skincare, sun protection and tanning products which have been in existence for over 25 years. Their formulas are not only rich in natural ingredients but they also keep one from burning and hydrate the skin.
Natural Tone’s Aloe After Sun Lotion is a favourite everyday hydrating moisturiser. Natural Tone Organic Skincare products are revolutionary. They are the only totally chemical-free oils, lotions and after-sun aloes on the market.
They are non-nano, gluten free, paraben free, biodegradable and reef friendly, with no synthetic chemicals and, of course, never tested on animals. The sunblock range, which includes SPF8, SPF15 and SPF30, is suitable for all the family including babies (three months and over).
During the warm months of summer, it is recommended to use Naturals After Sun Lotion, since the organic ingredients will hydrate the skin and retain its moisture while promoting a long-lasting tan. Best results are obtained when the product is applied chilled after a warm shower, because the warm water will open the pores of the skin and bring all the heat in the skin to the top.
Naturals Aloe Recovery Gel should be used on damaged skin or areas where significant colour was gained. For proper application, one should apply the gel on the skin and wait for it to sink in.
Aloe After Sun Lotion should then be applied using the same method. Recovery Gel is also excellent for skin rashes, shaving irritations, insect bites and jellyfish stings.
For sun lovers, Naturals also has a Tanning Oil which can be used together with a sunblock. It is imperative that the sunblock used is mineral-based and not chemical-based and therefore can be applied underneath or above the sunblock.
For lip protection, Naturals skincare also produce a Lip Balm with SPF 15.
The Naturals Suncare range is available at leading pharmacies and health shops. For further enquiries, call Medina Healthcare on 2137 6774.
