Is Sunscreen Useless? This Scary Statistic Says Yes

Is Sunscreen Useless? This Scary Statistic Says Yes

Super frustrating news in the world of sunscreen: turns out, a lot of them might not even be working. Ugh! A recent report by the CDC  foound that the diagnosis of melanoma has doubled between 1982 and 2011, and it looks like the problem has to do with sunscreen since a separate report by the Environmental Working Agency discovered that the majority of the sun protection products on the market are inefficient. 

“[Eighty] percent of 1,700 products we examined this year offer inferior sun protection or contain worrisome ingredients like oxybenzone and vitamin A,” the EWG wrote. 

The organization compiled a Hall of Shame list with the worst offenders. So what can you do to help stay protected in case your sunscreen is failing you?

Tips:
Wear hats and sunglasses with protection.
Look for products with SPF between 15 and 50, and BE SURE to reapply ever 2 hours!
Try facial sprays and powder formulas to reapply over your makeup.
Sit in the shade as often as possible!
