5 Summer Skincare Myths (Slideshow)

1. Myth: Water-Resistant Sunscreens are Totally Waterproof.

Not so! No sunscreen is totally waterproof, as much as sunscreen marketers would have you believe. After you take a dip, you should reapply. In fact, you should reapply sunscreen every two hours regardless.

Protecting your skin from harmful ultra violet rays is main motto of applying sun screen lotion having high SPF.

I don't agree with using sunscreen. It adds toxins to your body, and especially for small children, the load can be quite heavy, and our bodies need to have sun on our skins to produce the best type of D3 and K2. Between sitting inside 24-70 staring at games and the boob tube, and slathering on sunscreen so you're "protected," there's an epidemic of D3 deficiency growing. The key is not to stay our for 20 million years at a time, but get outside and enjoy the sun au naturale.

I might have known most of what the post says, but sometimes other people repeat so often misleading information that we end up not knowing what is true and what is not!! Now I'm sure about a few things! Thanks much!
