It’s summer and that means lots of sun. You need enough sun to help your body produce Vitamin D, but you don’t want to over do it. Too much sun can cause, wrinkles and age spots.. That’s why I put together some non-toxic sunscreens, which are very important for reducing wrinkles.
But first, here is what you want to avoid in a sunscreen:
- Mineral Oil
- Vitamin A (may speed up development of skin tumors)
