We are constantly told to protect our skins from the harmful effects of the sun, especially in countries like South Africa where we spend lots of time outdoors! Staying out of the midday sun and covering yourself by wearing a hat or protective clothing are important, as is using a good quality sunscreen.
But did you know that most commercial sunscreens contain ingredients that can be harmful to our skins and even our overall health? The majority have also been tested on laboratory animals under harsh and cruel conditions. To add to the problem, many sunscreens are causing damage to the environment, including coral reefs around the world!
Would you like to put something like that on your skin? Luckily there are natural alternatives, with cruelty-free organic ingredients that do not harm your health or that of the planet! Here are the top picks from Feel Good System.
