What ingredients to Avoid in your SPF


Want to know the best way to protect your skin from the UV rays? I am an Estheticain yet I am also a sun goddess and now live in San Diego. I have been researching healthy ways to be in the sun while protecting from all the damage for years.

The UV rays are the strongest between 10 am to 2 pm. It is important to use a Natural Sunscreen that is mineral based.

Free of Oxybenzone,Talc,coconut oil, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate, avobenzone, mineral oil and propylene glycol

Tips for healthy summer skin

  • Use natural Serums that have antioxidants and Vitamin C and E under your sunscreen to add cellular protection.

  • Wear a hat that has UV protection.

  • Eat a healthy diet with antioxidants, foods rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C and E, and beta carotene. (Green Tea, Berries, many different fruits and vegetables)

  • Apply sunscreen 30 minutes prior to going outside

  • Re apply when direct in the sun every 1 to 2 hours

What is Oxybenzone?

It is a chemical based ingredient that is used in many sunscreen brands in the US. It is believed to be harmful to the body and the environment. It is now banned in Hawaii, Key West and Australia due to the harm it causes to the coral reefs

There is lots of research that Oxybenzone is linked to endometriosis and abnormal sperm counts. It acts like an estrogen in the body and can disrupt the hormonal and adrenal system.

Many people have allergic reactions on there skin from Oxybenzone.

The good news is that there are better options for sun protection. I recommend wearing a Sun hat that protects from the UV rays San Diego hat is a great company that has many options.

There are now Sunscreens that are non chemical instead are mineral based. I have been using them on myself and in my skin care practice for a few years. Be cautious who you order from,some products are expired and they are sold on several online e-commerce platforms at a cheaper price. All of our products are fresh inventory. Come in to my Skincare facial boutique in La Jolla for a sample.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I have been SO happy with Leslie's excellent service! She is truly a professional and can address a multitude of skincare concerns. I always feel completely pampered in an appointment with Leslie, and love her attention to detail. Le Vie products are amazing (I have sensitive skin), and reasonably prices for their quality. Leslie has helped my daughter as well and we are happy with the results! I highly recommend Leslie and Le Vie.
