All-Natural Sunscreen - Fun in the Sun Brought to you by Ideal Bite
Wanna get down with neighbors without looking like you barbecued your face? Block the rays with a neighborhood slathering of eco-sunscreen. May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and healthy (not leathery) skin is in, so pick up mineral-based sunscreens 'steada ones with harsh chems. Block on.
- More of a party for your pores. These 'screens don't contain the typical chem Parsol 1789, which has been linked to cancer, liver damage, and Parkinson's disease.
- Fun in the sun without the worries. Mineral-based 'blocks (which use titanium dioxide or zinc to protect against UV rays) work just as well as conventional sunscreens, but with fewer toxins.
- Eco-careful cul-de-sacs. These won't hurt sensitive coral reefs after washing off into water like some synthetics can.
Jen From Renewable Choice Says: It may me the mothering instinct in me (yes my friends call me mama hen) but I always make sure to bring the sunscreen. Of course it is the all-natural, chem-free kind and works just as well if not better than the conventional brands. I always remind my friends to apply sunscreen, and especially pester the boys to actually put it on- ladies, they never would think of it otherwise, so take care of your men.If you pay attention to this tip, you will enjoy your summer in the sun, majorly reduce your risk of skin cancer, end up with non-leathery skin while still getting a healthy glow. Here comes the sun, and I said, it's alright... ~Jen
