Fun in the Sun... With Mineral Sunscreen Protection!

doTERRA sun care products to help you reduce toxicity

Warm weather, soaking up the sunshine, long summer days by the pool, and a little vitamin D is probably what we all need right about now. Summer is on its way which means it’s time to stock up on sunscreen!

The sun is our friend! It is fundamental to the climate and habitability of our planet and essential to life on earth. It provides warmth, daylight, and sends all kinds of positive signals to our bodies. It helps your body create serotonin, which has been linked to improved mood and mental health. It also helps regulate the production of melatonin, support circadian rhythms, and improve sleep cycles. Sunlight helps you synthesize vitamin D, which promotes calcium absorption (hello, strong muscles and bones) and can support proper immune responses, among other health benefits.

Sunshine is a classic example of how you can sometimes have too much of a good thing. No one likes a sunburn, and the risk of skin cancer should always be taken seriously. Ideally, we appreciate and enjoy the sun without putting our skin at risk of long-term damage including sunspots, wrinkles, premature aging, and loss of skin elasticity.

Some ways you can maximize your time outdoors while protecting your skin include staying in the shade or covering your skin in thick, dark clothing. For many outdoor activities, these aren’t the most realistic options. That’s why sunscreen is so great! However, not all sunscreens are created equal.

There are two primary types of sunscreens on the market: chemical and mineral. Chemical sunscreens are designed to absorb UV rays to protect your skin, while mineral sunscreens reflect UV rays to protect your skin.

Some chemical sunscreen filters can eventually degrade when exposed to UV rays, generating free radicals. Some active ingredients in chemical sunscreens can cause other negative effects.

We’re exposed to countless toxins every day with everything we do, from sources we may not even be aware of. Every breath, every bite, every minute under the sun—they all introduce you to substances and chemicals that can negatively impact your health. A toxin is any substance that places undue stress on the body. Toxic load is the sum of these substances accumulated within your body, and the burden they place on organs at any given time.

What are the possible consequences of a toxic load that’s too heavy? Toxins can cause imbalances, lead to negative effects on wellness, and influence your daily and long-term health. Knowing this, we should do our best to look for ways to reduce toxicity. We can achieve this by looking for the ingredients in products we use every day.

Lucky for you, doTERRA has a lineup of five mineral sunscreen products that will help you reach your goal of reducing toxicity.

Why is it important to use mineral sunscreen filters? Mineral sunscreen filters work as a physical barrier, reflecting UVB and UVA rays for broad-spectrum protection. They don’t degrade when exposed to UV rays, and because they act like a physical barrier, they’re effective immediately. The main mineral sunscreen filters are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.

Now that you’re an expert in all things sun care, let’s dive into the doTERRA® Sun product line! The doTERRA sun brand includes a series of sun care products that are safe and natural. When creating this product line, we know we had to meet three key objectives to create sun care products we were proud to introduce to the market.

First, the products needed to be good for all skin types. These formulas are nourishing, antioxidant-rich, and hydrating. They also leave a minimal white cast, so they accommodate all skin tones. Second, we made sure these products are environmentally conscious. All the formulas are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. Plus, they’re reef safe! This makes them usable in areas of the world that restrict non-reef safe sunscreens and helps keep our underwater ecosystems healthier and happier.

Finally, the products needed to have clean formulas. On top of being mineral powered by non-nano zinc oxide, doTERRA sun products are free from a number of harsh, synthetic ingredients, including oxybenzone, parabens, phthalates. The superhero ingredients of course are some of our favorite essential oils like: Frankincense, Helichrysum, and carrot seed. All three are fabulous for your skin!

Now let’s look at each of the five products!
