I can't and dont wear sunscreen. Why? because I happen to think its the root cause of many illnesses. Have you ever looked at the ingredients even the ones that reckon they are toxic free? These creams are highly toxic and I wouldn't be surprised to find in years to come that they are responsible for many diseases including cancers etc.
What I do is try to keep out of the sun as much as I can...remembering to take Vitamin D. When I do go out I wear clothes are prevent the sun penetrating through and good sun hat.
If you do some research online the jury's out on whether they cause more harm than good.
''Two such controversial chemical filters contained in sun cream and thought to produce free radicals in the skin include oxybenzone and retinyl palmitate. Oxybenzone converts UV light to heat and is believed to cause hormonal disruption and cell damage, which can lead to cancer, while retinyl palmitate has been shown to speed up malignant cell growth and the spread of skin cancer. Unlike physical filters, which sit on the surface of the skin deflecting rays, these chemical filters absorb UV rays and partially penetrate the skin, which is where the damage could happen''.
