Earth Day is one of our favorite days here at Sea Radiance! Did you know you can even help protect the Earth with the choices you make for your skin? Read on to see how.
- Everything we use on our bodies washes down the drains into our waterways and oceans, and harmful ingredients can affect flora and fauna! Always look for products that are free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes and GMOs.
- Always remember to recycle when you are done with your products. Your community recycling program will take care of most of your empties, but some cosmetics companies will actually give you a new product in exchange for several old containers of their products!
- Long showers not only waste water, but they can actually dry out your skin, too. Stick to just one short, warm shower a day for happier skin and environment!
- Look for physical sun blocks with zinc oxide. Chemical sunscreens stop cells from absorbing the sun, so when they wash into the ocean, they can damage coral reefs by preventing them from photosynthesizing! Physical sun blocks prevent ocean damage and are healthier for sensitive skin, as well.
How are you celebrating Earth Day? Are you heading out with your sunblock in the fresh air? We’d love to know! Send us a tweet @SeaRadianceSkin
