Beware of the BBQ

Did you know that aerosol sunscreens are flammable? It’s tempting to use them in the hot summer but they can lead to serious burns. If you do use one realize that they are also harmful to inhale. Always check for water resistance also, since it gets hot in the summer, some sunscreens do not have the ability to protect well after sweating or swimming. As you already know, I have a bias towards zinc oxide suncreens, such as the one from my company Verdure. In any case, sprays can be useful for hairy areas and for quick protection. Realize though that your skin is absorbing all of those chemicals through the skin, both the sunscreen ingredients as well as the inactive ingredients.
