Safe Fun in the Sun: Protect your family’s skin

Now that summer break is almost here, our children will be spending a lot more time outside.  Here are some safe sun tips from The Environmental Working Group.

The best sun protection, of course, is a Hat and a  Beach Cover-up.  But good sunscreen is essential to safe outdoor activities. The Environmental Working Group recommends 129 products that contain zinc and titanium, which are the right choice for people who want UVA protection without any of the sunscreen chemicals that are considered to be potential hormone disrupters.

You can view the entire list, but here are a few my family and friends recommend.

  • Aveeno Baby Natural Protection Mineral Block Face Stick, SPF 50
  • Earth’s Best
  • Mustela Sun Cream for Sensitive Areas, SPF 50
  • Neal’s Yard Remedies, Lavender Sunscreen, SPF 50
