Healing Therapies: Safe Sun Protection

Despite what the temp reads in your car, the sun can do its damage hot or cold. As people begin to think of sunscreen more, it's also important to consider what you don't know can hurt you as well. IPC prides itself on "digging into" information about the products you use for your health and wellness. Same goes for your sunscreen.

Sunscreens come in a variety of formulas and strengths, yet many are more damaging to our bodies by what they do and don't contain. Environmental Working Group (EWG) has been researching the efficacy of sunscreens and making recommendations for the best protection for the past 10 years. So before you head to your corner drugstore, check out EWG's 2016 Sunscreen Guide to find out what might be lurking in your favorite brand of sunscreen.

And, of course, slather the right ones on.
