All sunscreens are not created equal!
With the warmer weather finally here and the long weekend right around the corner, many of us are planning on spending a lot more time outside. And with that comes buying up as much sunscreen as possible to ensure that the entire family stays safe in the sun.
My kids are all quite fair skinned with red or blonde hair, so I buy sunscreen in bulk to try to keep them protected, and I’ll admit that I often favor the spray sunscreen because it’s easier to apply to my often impatient sons. If you’re like me you probably hit your local drug store or Target, scope out the sunscreen sales and buy up the ones that have the highest spf rating. That is normally what I do, until now.
Since 2007, the Environmental Working Group has published a list of the best and worst sunscreens on the market, and after reading it I definitely won’t be buying the spray variety anymore, and I’ll be much more vigilant when selecting the brands I buy.
With the warm weather fast approaching here’s a list of the sunscreens you’ll definitely want to avoid for your kids!
