With sunny days making a comeback, it’s now more important than ever to wear sunscreen. Sunscreens can help protect skin from UV rays and the damage they cause. But did you know that some sunscreen ingredients can be pretty harmful, too? So, if you’re in the market for a new sunscreen, you’ll want to make sure it has the following four natural ingredients.


Zinc is a top mineral to protect against the sun. And it’s frequently used in so-called “mineral” sunscreens, but don’t be fooled. These more natural sounding sunscreens are often loaded with chemicals. Zinc just boosts the formula.

But when used in a truly natural product, zinc is great. As dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, explains, it’s “best for sensitive skin because it doesn’t require the absorption that chemical sunscreens do; it works by simply reflecting ultraviolet light.”


Sunscreen formulas made with antioxidants are a good choice, too. That’s because UVA ray exposure can lead to free radicals, and these antioxidants help fight against them. Antioxidants are also a great anti-aging component, too.

Plant oils

Look for natural oils such as olive, coconut, carrot seed oil, almond oil and red raspberry oil. These help to protect against UV damage, too, while also hydrating and nourishing the skin.

Anti-inflammatory ingredients

Exposure to the sun can lead to inflammation, so Nazarian recommends calming oils like coconut and jojoba oil, along with shea butter to sooth skin.

America is defined by being multicultural. From the very beginning, the US was made up of people from other countries – everyone looking for better opportunities and ultimately, a better life. This is still the dream for many individuals, including a caravan of migrants that has reached the US-Mexico border. The only problem is, they’re not able to get inside the United States.
