Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the U.S. and using sunscreen is one of many ways to help protect your skin from potentially harmful sun exposure.
Though sad to think about, we live in a sea of toxic chemicals that can harm our health. Our bodies are regularly exposed to toxins in the air we breath, water we drink, food we eat, and the products we use.

Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to help minimize or avoid exposures and support your body.
