Does sunscreen enter the bloodstream?

You may have come across this story recently https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/06/health/sunscreen-bloodstream-fda-study/index.html


Although this study does demonstrate that some sunscreen ingredients are found in the blood after extensive application, there is no eviden that it is significant or poses any risk.


What we do know now is the sun emits UV rays. UV rays are definitely carcinogenic and a known Cause of skin cancer and melanoma.


Most dermatologists still recommend routine use of sunscreen, particularly physical blockers containing zinc or titanium.


Don’t forget about common sense protection such as wide brim hats, long sleeves, staying in the shade, avoiding excessive direct sun exposure and more. This is key!
