If It’s a Day Ending in ‘Y,’ Gisele Bundchen Has Some More Crap Life Advice For You

Let it be said that I think Gisele Bundchen is one of the most beautiful women on the planet. I don’t know – I just think she’s classically gorgeous, and she apparently takes good care of herself. With that prelude, let me launch into what I think about her ideas: I think they’re fucking stupid. And hey, I also think they suck.

If you remember Gisele’s long-winded diatribe about the legal aspect of breastfeeding, you probably won’t be surprised to know that girlfriend here is all-organic and flaxed-out and avoids all sorts of free-radicals for her health and her beauty. I guess it’s kind of what she lives by.

Anyway, Gisele decided to talk about sunscreen the other day, and how it’s ‘poison‘ to anyone who uses it. (Because, you know, it’s so totally hot and healthy to emanate a radioactive tan coupled with bagging, sagging suitcase-grade skin.) Bundchen, in an interview, says:

‘I cannot put this poison [sunscreen] on my skin. I do not use anything synthetic.’

First of all, people that say fucking EVERYTHING is poison? Really bother me. ‘Don’t use antibiotics … they’re POISON.’ ‘Don’t drink water from your tap … it’s POISON.’ ‘Don’t use unbleached flour … DUH, it’s POISON!’

You want to know what’s fucking poison? Sucking back a can of industrial-strength RAID. That, guys? Is hardcore. THAT is poison.

Experts, though, on the subject had this to say in response to Gisele’s comments:

“Sunscreen prevents damage to the skin and is of fundamental importance for the prevention of cancer.  This is not any poison, when a public person makes a statement like this, it creates confusion.”

Gisele, though I think she’s brutally beautiful, loses a lot of credibility in my eyes when she opens her mouth a lot of times. Because for someone who only goes out in the sun before the sun’s rays are searing (read: she claims she doesn’t hit the world after 8 AM and that’s her ‘sunscreen’), girlfriend’s got an awfully genuine-looking tan ALL OF THE TIME.

Before you take a ride on the Sarah-train, though, and get all judgmental, Gisele took it to her blog, backtracked and revised her comments (oh look just like last time):

“I would like to clarify the misunderstanding about the use of sunblock. I do use sunblock but also I try my best not to be exposed to the sun when it is too strong. My line of skincare products are all natural and do not contain SPF. I feel we all need to pay more attention to what we are putting on our skin. I definitely know the importance of using sunscreen and I try to look for more natural options. This is a place where they have a list of some more natural option sunscreens, check it out … “

… So, does this redeem her? Again?

  • SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. It’s not a chemical. So for her to say her sunscreen does not “contain SPF” is like saying they don’t protect her from the sun. She would’ve sounded fine, but that little error, makes her sound quite dumb.

  • the answer is no, she didn’t save herself. “Oh, I don’t wear sunscreen, oh yes I do but not really.”

  • She’s such a prick. She doesn’t hit the world after 8AM. Good on her is she is a model, but you know, those of us who live in really sunny places and have to go to work or school or wherever can’t stick to that easy rule. What an idiot. And yeah, just like C said, they don’t contain SPF? So they do fuck all. I can’t believe someone from Brazil doesn’t know how important it is to protect yourself from the tropical sun.

  • The credibility of anyone who speak like this:
    “First of all, people that say fucking EVERYTHING is poison? Really bother me. ‘Don’t use antibiotics … they’re POISON.’ ‘Don’t drink water from your tap … it’s POISON.’ ‘Don’t use unbleached flour … DUH, it’s POISON!’’

    is zilch!

  • a big fat load of nothing her non-sunscreen applying did for her skin, it looks like it’s a few years away from looking like Jen Aniston’s.

    God some people just don’t know how dumb they are. Can anyone explain her appeal? Her face looks so plain.
