Meg here! I am going to sound like your mother, or maybe you’re a mother yourself in which case you need to read this. Apparently only 8% off the sunscreens on the market really work. This means you probably have a dud in your bag or more to the point, on your face.
The Environmental Working Group has released the best, the decent and the worst on their site. With a name like EWG you can bet that they also don’t smile upon chemicals. The words to look for on your sunscreen for the best UVA protection are “mineral zinc” or “titanium.” Look out for “oxybenzone” or “vitamin A”
I’m looking at this list and I don’t own any of the Top Ten Highest Ranked brands. Ugh. I generally keep my sunscreen in my glove compartment and remember it 35% off the time-usually when I’m driving with the top down. Too be completely honest, many times a tinted moisturizer that has sunscreen already in it is as far as I go.
With summer here I’m definitely going to have to up my game. Babylove is always raving over Badger products -I’m going to have to let her know to grab their #1 rated sunscreen
What about you? How devoted to sunscreen application are you? Did your favorite make the top 10?
