Gisele Bundchen is firing back at online reports quoting her as saying she doesn't use sunscreen because it's "poison".
The Daily Mail reported that while promoting her skin care line, the Brazilian supermodel said, â€œI cannot put this poison on my skin ... I do not use anything synthetic." Gisele's rep tells People, â€œThey misquoted her due to a language barrier. Gisele would never say not to use sunscreen because she has family members who have had skin cancer," noting that she doesn't put SPF in her products or use lotions containing chemicals.
Bundchen's rep added, "She followed that line of questions saying she tried to stay out of the sun when it is the strongest between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. When using sunscreens she selects ones that are free of parabens, oxybenzone, PABA, and retinyl palmitate. She buys her sunscreen at Whole Foods, so she can find ones that are free of harsh chemicals. She says, â€˜Of course I put on sun block. I donâ€™t want to look like a shrimp!â€™â€
