Sun safety is something that I have taken very seriously over the years following the rebellious sun worshiping days in my teens and early 20’s. Now being in my 30’s, I understand the damage I have done to my skin in the past while sun bathing irresponsibly. I have had my fair share of sunburns and am seeing the effects of sun bathing on my skin through fine lines and discolouration over the years. For many years I have been on the path to prevent any further damage and to try and reverse some damage done (not so easy to do). This article is a compilation of some of my favourite sun safety tips as well as mini reviews of many of the natural and cruelty free sunscreens I’ve tried over the years (some I love, some are okay.. I think it is important to keep an honest dialogue on which products work best, are safest, and my personal thoughts on them). I’ve included products that are multi-purpose, for face, for body, for children, for beach days (ie. waterproof), and for regular days where you don’t want to necessarily feel all greased up. To start off, I wanted to share some facts on sun care that I’ve learned over the years to help you along on your own sun safety research journey and to make your own informed choice when it comes to safe sun practices.
