I love to go out in the sun. When the sun comes out after a long Maine winter, all I want to do is bask in the rays. We stop putting on snowsuits and start covering up with sunscreen. With three kids I go through a lot of sunscreen. We all know the sun can be damaging to the skin. But not all sunscreens are that great for you either. And now Vitamin D deficiency is a concern due to lack of exposure to sun. This can be all very confusing.
Look no further for all you need to know about protecting your child’s skin. A friend of mine turned me onto The Environmental Working Group. They just released a comprehensive 2010 Sunscreen Guide. I mostly like the list and ratings of all sunscreens. I mean all sunscreens. I was surprised that one of the sunscreens that I used all last year got the lowest rating possible. Bummer. Thankfully the one I am using this year got the top rating.
