I want this article to open up the conversation on how you can care for your skin in the sun without the toxic chemical-based sunscreens we all grew up using. I made an update post here about the importance of going non-toxic with your personal-care products and what I’ve been using this year. As for sun care, that needs its own post.
In this article we’ll go over:
appropriate ways to get your rays
how vitamin D is synthesized from the sun
difference between mineral and chemical sunscreen
my favorite non-toxic sunscreens
what to avoid in a “natural” sunscreen
