Optimize your sun exposure without sunscreen


It's a no brainer really, just like the cosmetics and beauty industry telling women to buy their
products. Would you put this stuff on your skin if they said, "Hey, Petro-chemicals are just great for your body and your health".

Corporations don't want you to think for yourself. What about all the testing on animals too. They don't need to do that anymore either, but hey they get off on this kind of evil. There are natural alternatives to the chemical products. People with sensitive skin are turning to the natural products in droves. However do watch out for products containing Parabens and Sulphates are they do upset sensitive skin.

Women that are worried about their skin can do a few things to avoid the sun drying out their skin. Wear a wide brimmed hat, one that is trendy and not frumpy looking, or even use a parasol/umbrella.
There are fancy little parasoles on E-Bay these days, so a lady can avoid flat hair, from wearing a sun hat. Wear sun-glasses that don't block the UVA and UVB rays. Also choose what time you go out in the sun.

No body wants to look like a dried up prune at 35 or 40. Learn to be sun smart and beauty smart. It isn't cool to lie in the sun for hours to see how dark you can get. I know girls that I went to school with in the 1970's and worked with in the 1980's that look a lot older than me now. They wouldn't stay out of the sun. They also used baby oil to help fry their skin. Young women just aren't getting the message. I feel that the media have to shoulder some of the blame for the way they shamelessly promote their products with golden tanned women.

At least we can still enjoy the sun and stay healthy and safe. People have worked and lived out doors for thousands of years. It is only in the past 30 years that all this has become a drama. Moderation is the key word to everything that we do in life.
