Sunscreen does not need to be reapplied when perspiring, but sweat can make it less effective. We all perspire—even the most avid exerciser! If you are sweating copiously, discontinue use for a short period of time and reapply sunscreen after the exertion has subsided. Also wear an extra layer on top of your SPF30+ sunscreen if possible (such as a hat) before you begin to exercise or strenuously work out outdoors in hot weather.
ABSOLUTELY NOT PERSPIRANT: The sun may look like it’s shining brightly on us during summer months but that doesn’t mean we should expose ourselves to its harmful rays without protection. Sunscreen is your best defense against UV damage caused by UVA (ultraviolet A) radiation and burning skin cells from overexposure to the sun’s rays. In addition to safeguarding against premature aging associated with sunlight exposure, choosing smart products also protects our health from potentially dangerous substances such as oxybenzone, retinyl palmitate and parabens that have been linked to hormonal disruption in girls and women who were exposed early in life; reproductive issues including endometriosis; skin cancer risk; immune system dysfunction; disrupted thyroid function; altered cholesterol levels which could lead to heart disease later in life; cell death leading ultimately to memory loss or Alzheimer’s disease later in life…the list goes on! These risks simply do not outweigh how much
