My stance on sun exposure tends to surprise people.
When I tell folks that I make unprotected sun exposure a priority, I usually get some pretty crazy responses.
“I NEVER leave the house without sunscreen!”
“Aren't you worried about skin damage and cancer?”
There's much more to the story of the sun on our skin than sun exposure causes cancer. In fact, the vitamin D our bodies generate during SAFE sun exposure is thought to FIGHT cancer and boost immunity!
Check out what I have to say in the video below, and leave your thoughts in the comments!
Note that while I refer to the difference between sunscreen and sunblock in the video, today, no sun protection product of this kind is called “sunblock.” The term “sunblock” appears to present a liability issue: it implies a product that fully stops all rays from penetrating (impossible) and that doesn't need reapplication. In reality, no matter how safe your choice of sun protection, you should ALWAYS reapply.
Everything is called “sunscreen” now, but there are a ton of different options under that umbrella.
Thanks for reading & watching!
