Choose Your Sunscreen Wisely
With all this delightful, hot, sunny weather, many of you will be heading outdoors to enjoy the beach, go camping and hiking, and simply enjoy backyard BBQs. We all know that sunscreen is an important element of skin care, and that it helps to prevent cancer, but did you know that some sunscreens are actually full of toxins? And that some don't protect you the way they say they do?
I could write a long post with multiple recommendations for choosing a good, clean sunscreen, but I find the Environmental Working Group totally does this topic justice. I love sending patients to EWG's website for tips on how you can play safely in the sun.
