Are the ingredients in sunscreen toxic or harmful to the body and should someone ever skip it and risk getting a sunburn? Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra weighs in and recommends how to best protect yourself!
First, she stresses people should NOT stop using sunscreen, as skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in America. She explains that appropriate sunscreen use can prevent burns that can lead to developing cancer.
She explains the study that has people worried about whether their sunscreen is toxic or not had people using 1 bottle of sunscreen in just 2 days and was applied to 75 percent of their body. Dr. Batra notes the average person only uses a bottle of sunscreen over the course of an entire year.
So should you stop using your sunscreen? Dr. Batra says no, and notes for the most part sunscreen ingredients are safe and have been used for decades.
If you are looking for alternative sunscreen options, Dr. Batra recommends mineral-block sunscreens, containing titanium dioxide and zinc oxide that sit on the skin and deflect the sun. She also stresses to NOT use DIY natural sunscreen, as there is no proof they are safe or effective.
