With summer here right now, we cover how the FDA is bringing a new level of scrutiny to ingredients in sunscreens.
But the jury is still out on what the changes may result.
For your face, use enough - think teaspoon-sized blob. Don't count on moisturizers or makeup with SPF, and REAPPLY!
12 chemical ingredients are being scrutinized, and the one most scrutinized is oxybenzone.
What do all of those terms mean on your sunscreen bottle, like SPF, Broad Spectrum, Water-Resistant, Protects Against Aging And Skin Cancer, Sport, Baby Or Kid, and Dermatologist Tested Or Approved? Are they legitimate claims?
What are some other protective strategies?
If the FDA proposed sunscreen rules take effect, you will see some changes on labels and in the types of products available.
