If the dermatologists are convinced about the use of sunscreen to avoid melanoma, the incident should decline precisely along with the increase of sunscreen. Unfortunately, over the last 30 years, as the use of sunscreen has increased, so it has an incidence of stage 1 melanoma.
In addition to blocking the activation of vitamin D, many sunscreen also contains toxic ingredients, which is the last thing you need on your skin if you are concerned about the health of yourself.
Worse, sunscreen containing vitamin A and its derivatives (retinol and retinyl palmitate), and other harmful substances such as oxybenzone, has been shown to increase the speed at which malignant cells develop and cause skin cancer.

Another important factor to remember is that SPF only protects against UVB rays, which are the rays in the ultraviolet spectrum that allow your body to manufacture vitamin D in your skin.
But the most dangerous rays, in terms of causing skin damage and cancer is UVA rays. So make sure every sunscreen you buy protects against UVA and UVB.

Five safe Tips using sunblock
You would want to be careful and always avoid the skin from burning due to sun exposure associated with sunburn but you also want to avoid protecting yourself from the sun completely.
Here are some tips to help you reap maximum benefits and minimize your risk:

1. Exposure to a large amount of your skin (at least 40 percent of your body) of sunlight in a short time each day.
If using sunscreen, provide an opportunity to produce vitamin D before you apply it, and be sure to choose non-toxic sun lotion that protects against both UVB and UVA rays of your body.

2. Stay out though in a long time, as it can also give a positive impact to your skin to turn the color to pink, if you are naturally light-skinned, or just a slight redness if you are dark-skinned.
Protect your face from the sun using a safe sunscreen or a hat, as your facial skin is thin and more prone to sun damage, such as premature wrinkles.

3. When you will be in the sun for a longer time, cover with clothes, hats, or anything that gives a shady effect (either natural or you make use of umbrellas).

4. Consider the use of "internal sunscreen" like Astaxanthin to get additional sun protection.
Astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant (and pigment) manufactured by marine algae in response to their exposure to UV rays. Typically, it takes a few weeks of daily supplementation to saturate your body's tissues enough to provide protection.

5. Consuming healthy foods full of natural antioxidants is another useful strategy to help avoid sun damage.
Ingredients that are fresh, raw, as well as unprocessed vegetables and fruits provide the nutrients your body needs to maintain a healthy balance of omega-6 and omega-3 oils in your skin, which is the first fortress defense against Sunburn.
Vegetables also provide your body with a potent antioxidant content that will help you fight free radicals caused by sun damage that can cause burns and cancer. Thnks for reading.
