Is Zinc a safe ingredient in sunscreen?
Is zinc a safe sunscreen ingredient? Perhaps the biggest reason that zinc is safe as a sunscreen ingredient is that it's a physical blocker of the sun's harmful rays, and not a chemical blocker. . When you put on a sunscreen that has zinc as the active ingredient, the zinc sits on top of your skin and acts like a mirror to the sun's rays. #healthyskin #suncare

Zinc vs Titanium Dioxide Both are physical/mineral sunscreens. The main distinction between Zinc and Titanium Dioxide sunscreen is the amount of UVA1 protection offered. Zinc is the only active sunscreen ingredient that protects against UVA1, UVA2, and UVB rays.

What does broad spectrum sunscreen mean?
You probably already know that in order for a sunscreen to be effective, it needs to protect against all the sun's rays, but what you might not know is that some sunscreens don't offer complete protection. In order for a sunscreen to say that it offers "Broad Spectrum" protection from the sun, it must protect from both UVA and UVB rays.UVA rays causes signs of premature aging like wrinkles and age spots. UVB rays are responsible for sunburns, but both UVA and UVB can cause skin cancer.
It's summer so of course that means sunscreen, but summer shouldn't be the only time you wear it. It's best to wear a sunscreen on your face everyday to help prevent signs of aging and skin cancer. Be sure to look for a physical sunscreen with Zinc as the active ingredient to ensure your getting broad spectrum coverage. #summer #sunscreen
