As summer is here we must start looking for a good sun screen, keeping your skin healthy and moisturized. If you are out in the sun for a long time it is important to wear sun screen and apply it every two hours. If you go swimming you should re-apply. Sun screen protects the skin from harmful rays of the sun that can cause many problems with skin. Although sunscreen is made to protect the skin, some brands contain harmful ingredients that can actually be bad for your skin.

Some sunscreens can actually have negative effects. Some of these negative effects are drying of the skin, allergic dermatitis, irritant dermatitis, acne, cancer and skin aging.

Watch for ingredients like: alcohol and isopropyl: these can dry skin as well as promote brown spots.

Allergic Deratitis: have parabins that may cause breast cancer tumors, mimic estrogens, parabins are eaters of para-hydroxy benzoic acid. Common ones are methypar-bins, ethylparabins, propylparabin, butylparabin, alcohol, ethanol, the list goes on. The skin allergies include contact dermatitis and rosacea.

Acne: if one is acne prone ingredients may clog pores like liquidum, paraffin oil and petroleum.

Age Skin: the sun can age your skin but some ingredients in your sunscreen can cause aging skin like mineral oil.
