The Best Sunscreens for Safer Fun in the Sun
So it's Fourth of July weekend. It's summer. It's gorgeous. It's sunny. It's basically a stampede for the beach, the park, the fairway...anywhere outside! But as I reach for the sunscreen, it's easy to get overwhelmed by the millions of options. Mineral or non-mineral? Cream or spray-on? UVA vs UVB rays? What SPF? What are the best and safest brands? Ahhh! It's almost enough to make a girl stay indoors. But then my friend Leigh sent me the Environment Working Group's list of the best sunscreens, their ratings, and why. Best of all, you can search for your current brand and see how it stacks up. Sweet!
