What Is In Your Beach Bag?

Fortunately, there ARE all-natural ways to protect yourself from sunburn that you can use instead of resorting to the toxic infusions of commercial sunscreens. The most obvious and safest option is to put on a long sleeved shirt, pants and a hat once you’ve reached your limit of sun exposure (you can tell you’ve had enough right when your skin turns the lightest shade of pink).

At this point, I’m sure you’d agree that commercial sunscreens are out of the question.

Your next best bet is to find an all-natural, non-chemical sunscreen. There are several on the market, but my favorite is Natural Sunscreen.

Instead of chemicals and potentially toxic compounds, each active ingredient in this outstanding product has been carefully chosen to specifically protect and nourish your skin. In addition to UVA/UVB-protecting titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, it contains only all-natural ingredients such as:

Sunflower oil
Vitamins A, D and E
Coconut oil
Jojoba oil
Shea butter
Eucalyptus oil

As a side note, USDA Certified Organic Body Butter works really great as a post tanning lotion, or to soften your skin after a swim (especially if you’re going to the pool as chlorinated water is very harsh, and dries out your skin).

I been saying this for a while now that use lotion on your skin with natural ingredients in them. They maybe pricey but it's good your health. Read everything, and if you can't pronounce what are written that means they are not good for you.
