Now I can jump in to my bed free from guilt of not washing my face ??? thank you Dr ?
I know it's said to remove it for preparing my skin for night time moisturizer... But I lean on to the idea of not touching water, at least for today let me be legal ???
You are amazing Doc!
I have a body lotion that contains spf, is it ok to apply it at night? Will the sunscreen clog the body pores?
Lack of sunshine causes
Lack of sunshine causes skin cancer, according to Andreas Moritz. In this video from 2009, he explains why being in the sun is actually good for you and your skin. Find out why your sunscreen is doing more harm than good. Also, you need vitamin D to prevent cancer, and sunscreen may interfere with your exposure to vitamin D from the sun.
Yes of course, it makes sense. I have not ever worn sunscreen and I have no cancer. I don’t even burn, I tan well.
honestly , do the opposite of what the government tells you to
Simple rule: Do not put on your skin what you dont put in your mouth (most of the time)
Conventional medicine is fantastic for its original intended purpose: saving lives in critical emergencies, and fixing broken bones, Thats it. Now there is so much money involved, the health industry is a huge money making business. Literally any hypothesis can be created out of bull shit.
There is a perfect ecosystem in place for over 350 million years.
If the sun harmed our skin, human's would not exist on earth, there is absolutely no chance in hell that the sun can directly (void of any external factors or real world variables, which are never taken into account in studies) harm us.
The Sun is the most vital and valuable source of natural light nutrient
you think sunscreen has more power to cause cancer then the sun? ok
He said England etc get skin cancer but I thought it was because they are fair skinned , their skin is use to being away from the sun, then many British people go on holiday or when there is abit of sun they run and lay in it all day and over do it and hence they get cancer. Please can someone assist me in the thought? Thanks

Amyl is coming at us with a new Pela Pointer! Did you know your sunscreen might be damaging the coral reefs?
Opt for sunscreens without oxybenzone and octinoxate these are two of the ingredients which have been linked to coral bleaching. Sunscreens like badger, raw elements, and coola offer reef-safe choices using ingredients like zinc oxide. But, one of the best ways to beat the sun is to wear a hat!
If you want to stay extra safe, pop open an umbrella next time you're by the pool or beach to stay in the shade, and go outside during the early and later hours when the sun isn't as intense.
I use sunscreen every day on my face (I’m very pale & scared of skin cancer/wrinkles ) so this is really helpful
