The beautiful beaches, coves and romantic bays along the Mexican coastline are visited every year by millions of travelers, who come craving the intense variety of water sports like kayaking, snorkeling, waterskiing, diving or surfing. It's especially great for swimmers who are looking for a cool dip all year long, particularly during the warmer months from March to September.
A nice tan can be the cherry on the cake to those who visit a beach destination because that's the best evidence of how entertaining a trip has been and also the perfect proof of the fantastic time spent on the recent beach vacations. Sizzling-golden skin and tan lines provoke envious exclamations when tourists get back home. A bunch of pictures, souvenirs of the trip and the wide collection of tales of an extraordinary vacation under the warm sun are also shared proudly with everyone.
For decades, the pleasure of many has turned into a serious disadvantage for all. What started as an innocent preoccupation for protection against sunburns turned into damage involuntarily done to the environment. Water sports and sunny beach days have pushed along the unintentional dumping of chemicals into the water, which provide ways to cool off and have fun, adventure and even romance, with a few incredible photos of your trip to the sea. The lotions that were thought to do good did a lot to protect one's skin but had adverse effects on theenvironment. Sadly, for every swimmer in the water, there would be a film of oily suntan lotion left behind, difficult to get rid of. This film normally does not break down easily, affecting many of the marine animals as well as the ecosystem.
Fortunately, advances in chemistry have evolved. Laboratories that produce sunscreen lotions have done their part to stop the damage to the world we live in. In fact, we could say that chemistry moved forward, going back to its origins: instead of making products with more complex recipes, they went back to making sunscreen lotions and sun block creams with natural, biodegradable ingredients. The chemical makeup of the these sun blocks and sunscreens allow for the easy breakdown of the creams, without any damage to the water, the fish and aquatic flora that live near the beaches.
Conscious of the multiple benefits that environmental protection brings to everyone and doing its level best to keep the marvelous aquatic paradises of Mexico and in the entire world alive and intact, the good vacationers of our time have increasingly chosen to use the biodegradable, eco-friendly sunscreen, suntan lotions and sun block. These are made with natural ingredients, free of toxins or oily residues, assuring the pure quality of the water as well as the underwater habitats, beaches, swamps, estuaries, lakes and lagoons of the globe. This is, undoubtedly, an excellent decision that guarantees wellness to every occupant on the planet.
Eco-friendly products can be found in any pharmacy or store in the entire country, especially in the beach destinations where there is a continuous stream of visitors. The prices of these products are comparable to the tanning lotions and sunscreens that are non-biodegradable. Nature-friendly sunscreens are taking over and are replacing the age-old options, completely safe for the ocean as well as for the creatures (including humans) that depend on these valuable bodies of water.
For the enjoyment of this generation as well as the many more to come, we invite you to put in your two cents and join the conservation effort and protect the beaches of Mexico and beyond. Use sunscreen and sun block that clearly indicate that they arebiodegradable or eco-friendly and participate in the water sports and beach activities without worry. They are about the same price as the non-biodegradable lotions and will leave the beaches of your favorite vacation haven intact. Come to Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo and all the incredible getaway destinations of the exceptional vacation Eden called Los Cabos, on the southern tip of Baja California.
