#221 - Did you see the FDA's recent sunscreen announcement? Not only are sunscreen chemicals absorbed into our blood, but it remains unclear whether 12 ingredients currently used in sunscreens are safe! We need to protect ourselves and our kids from skin cancer, but what’s a parent to do?

Well, of course, Ellie calls the best in skincare to find out. Dr. Whitney Bowe, research scientist, dermatologist, and mom, shares her thoughts on Atomic Moms about this latest sunscreen controversy, and how we can best protect our health.

And then, we riff on the microbiome, the gut-brain-skin axis, and the importance of cultivating the gut’s good bacteria in order to support our immune system, mental health, and our skin. Dr. Bowe’s Dirty Looks: The Secret to Beautiful Skin is full of scientific research and simple lifestyle changes with a big impact. This episode is for anyone who has ever suffered from anxiety or IBS or inflammation. Pretty much everyone who listens to Atomic Moms!
