WHAT TO LOOK FOR

Element - - LIFE STYLE -

Keep an eye out for zinc, ti­ta­nium, avoben­zone or Mex­o­ryl SX on the in­gre­di­ents la­bel. Th­ese sub­stances re­main largely on the skin, pro­tect­ing it from both UVB and UVA ra­di­a­tion. How­ever, it’s worth remembering that the use of zinc nanopar­ti­cles in sun­screens re­mains a con­tentious is­sue, although EWG main­tains that many zinc and ti­ta­nium-based sun­screens are among the safest and most ef­fec­tive sun­screens on the mar­ket. Broad Spec­trum Look for sun­screens that of­fer pro­tec­tion against both UVA and UVB lights. Prod­ucts car­ry­ing the term ‘broad spec­trum’ are your best bet.
