  • Slather the sunscreen




    Summer is just around the corner. You're probably thinking about pulling out your bathing suit, dusting off that straw basket and donning the flip flops. Just don't forget your most important accessory-- sunscreen! According to experts, anyone, regardless of skin color, can get skin cancer. Remember, your skin is your largest organ and your first defense from the elements (click here to find out how incredible your skin is).  


    The Environmental Working Group (EWG) just released their 2013 Guide to Sunscreens. Their list is the most comprehensive. From best beach and sport sunscreens to moisturizers and lip balms with SPF, the EWG sunscreen guide is a great place to start, especially if you're concerned about what type of sunscreen is best for your skin type, level of activity, etc.

    A few top picks from EWG's list:



    Beauty Without Cruelty Broad Spectrum Sunscreen, SPF 30




    All Terrain AquaSport Face Stick, SPF 28




    Ava Anderson Non-Toxic, SPF 30




    California Baby Super Sensitive Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Stick, SPF 30+
