Important Sunscreen Information from Pretty Mommies
Summer is upon us and we all should be using a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen to protect ourselves from the suns dangerous rays. There is a new study to support that in addition to helping prevent skin cancer that sunscreen also reduces signs of aging. But it is extremely important to pay attention to what type of sunscreen you are using, especially during pregnancy.
A recent study conducted by Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center shows that women who have high estrogen levels during pregnancy increase the chance of their daughters developing breast cancer. How does this relate to sunscreen? Oxybenzone is an active ingredient found in most mainstream sunscreens today. Oxybenzone is also a synthetic estrogen and hormone disruptor. It should be avoided while pregnant.
