Protect your summer skin with the best ethical sunscreens.
As you put together your easy breezy summer look, don't forget to prioritize the care of your skin! Here in the Arizona desert, the summer sun starts blazing down in mid-April, but skin care is important year-round, no matter where you live. We've put together a list of some of our favorite brands that offer eco-friendly, and cruelty free sunblock.
There are several considerations when choosing natural sunscreen, so you will want to decide which factors are most important to you. Some of the creams and sprays we used when we were children running through the sprinkler, have actually turned out to do more harm than good. We don't want to slather our precious skin with cancer-causing chemicals, or inhale toxic chemicals with our spray sunscreen.
Considerations while choosing your natural sunscreen:
- face or body?
- adult, child, or baby?
- eco-friendly, reef safe?
- time in sun before reapplication?
- normal or oily skin?
- preference of ingredients? vegan?
