Knowing the ingredients in your sunscreens is important, not only for your family's health, but for the planet's health, too!
Remember, natural sunscreens will help protect your skin, but being sun-wise is key to preventing burns and over-exposure. Limit your time in the sun. Wear a hat and sunglasses to help protect your face and eyes. If you are spending a wonderful summer day outdoors, ensure that there is a shady spot to retreat to for temporary relief from the sun. It can be an umbrella, a shady tree, a tent, canopy, or a nearby building. Enjoy your summer, and stay safe and healthy!
