A new product from Primal Life Organics – Paleo Skincare, this moisturizer can be used before you are exposed to the sun. It is not a sunscreen, but rather a way to nourish your skin. This pre-sale will last until June 10 and it is for 20% off.
Daily exposure to the sun is essential to your overall health; it’s overexposure that could cause some issues. Sunshine exposure is the best way for your body to create health protecting vitamin D. It is impossible to get enough vitamin D from food sources. Natural oils applied on the skin protect against sunburn and cancer. Unlike sunscreen, Red Raspberry Seed Oil, Unprocessed Coconut Oil, and Avocado Oil don’t completely block the UVB rays that are necessary for vitamin D synthesis. They protect the skin and underlying tissues from damage caused by excessive exposure.
The truth is, both chemical-laden sunscreens and physical sun blocks, like titanium dioxide, create free radicals when exposed to sunlight. Free radicals are formed naturally in the body and play an important role in many normal cellular processes. However, at high concentrations, free radicals can be hazardous to the body and damage all major components of cells, including DNA, proteins, and cell membranes. The damage to cells caused by free radicals, especially the damage to DNA, may play a role in the development of cancer by mutating cells to become cancerous, as well as other health conditions. Every chemical and toxin in you body causes free radical damage. Sunscreens themselves can cause free radicals when exposed to sunlight. Sunscreens give us a false sense of security. They may prevent sunburns, but they do little or nothing to prevent skin cancer or aging of the skin caused by sunlight.
