Lavanila, the Healthy Sunscreen

In my opinion the two best active ingredients to look for in a sunblock are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. These are natural ingredients that actually block the sun’s rays. Find them in Lavanila.

I wear sunblock every day of every season. Yes even through our record breaking snow-filled winter. If you are not like me, hopefully our sun filled spring will inspire you to protect your skin on a daily basis. In my opinion the two best active ingredients to look for in a sunblock are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. These are natural ingredients that actually block the sun’s rays. Most sunblock ingredients absorb the rays which means your skin will absorb some as well. Other ingredients to look for are antioxidants which fight free radicals, another ugly consequence of the sun. One of my recent favorites is Lavanila The Healthy Sunscreen SPF 40. It has zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Aloe, coconut and jojoba oil and shea butter add a lovely hydrating and healing aspect.

Love your skin, love yourself and don’t forget to protect your hands, neck and décolleté – areas we tend to neglect.

Sending glowing wishes,
Vanessa
