SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 Review
If you grew up being used to get plenty of sun exposure without protection, and probably even la-thered on sun tanning lotions or laid in sun tanning beds, it can be a real challenge to even begin to comprehend how the sun can cause real and lifelong detrimental effects to your health.
Then, even if you do get sunscreen protection, another consideration is the sunscreen ingredients your product carries. Chemical sunscreens which are made to absorb UV rays and turn these into less harmful states like heat, have been found to be highly toxic, and very likely cause more harm than good.
