Our List of 10 Great Natural Sunscreens
The Sun is Not Our Friend
Despite our need for Vitamin D and the mood enhancement that comes with sunny days, I hope we’ve all come to realize sun exposure can be too much of a good thing. After genetics, sun exposure determines how well or badly our skin ages. Sun exposure can also affect our immune system, lowering our ability to fight certain diseases. Summer colds or fever blisters, anyone? So, don’t go into the sun without wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 to 50.
Here’s a list of ten of our favorite sunscreen products.
