#5 Natural Skin Care Ingredient: Zinc Oxide

Zinc oxide is a main ingredient in many sunscreens–but not necessary the cheaper brands. The cheaper brands in grocery stores and drug stores often include scary-sounding ingredients like octyl-dimethyl PABA, benzophenone-3; octyl-methoxycinnamate, homosalate, and 4-MBC (4-methyl-benzylidene camphor). Now let me ask you…do you really want to apply these unpronounceable things to your entire body every single day? I doubt it!

So when it comes to sunscreen–something you should be using each and every day–I like to recommend the most natural forms available. And it just so turns out that zinc oxide is an all-natural sun protectant that shields your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.

Two brands of natural sunscreen that I love are Soleo and UV Naturals.
