Summer is here! And that means lots of fun in the sun. I personally don't wear sunscreen & hope for the best honestly. Being Italian & American Indian I tan nicely. My father was very, very tan. So tan that people at my wedding were saying "I didn't know Tina's dad was black". We still laugh about it!
In 2011, I talked about natural sunscreens in this post . Sunscreens are loaded with chemicals I consider to be posionous. I don't put sunscreen on my kids, except as I stated in that post, for a stick for their noses & cheeks & sometimes shoulders. Now more than ever there are more options for natural sunscreens. 149 of them list on the EWG's Guide alone! And if you're looking for an everyday moisturizer with SPF , they have a list of those too-62 of them!
MSN created a list of the most toxic & safest sunscreens One of the brands on their list is Ava Anderson. They've published their own safety guide as well. Ava Anderson's Sun Safety Guide . I also happen to have a good friend who is a rep for Ava Anderson. They have lots of great all natural products. I just ordered their deodorant & can't wait to try it. Check out her site!
