The summer months are here, which means beach time, grilling, and other outdoor activities. Sunscreen is essential during all of them to protect your skin from sunburn and skin cancer. But you also don’t want any of those nasty chemicals sunscreen contains baking into your skin.
The solution? Natural sunscreen. Created with natural ingredients, it gives the same protection without any artificial elements. We’ve gathered our top picks for you today.
Why Natural Sunscreen?
First, it’s better for your body. Instead of harmful chemicals, it uses zinc and titanium dioxide to protect your skin. They reflect harmful rays, working together to create mineral sunscreen.
Second, it’s better for the ocean. The unnatural chemicals found in traditional sunscreen can be harmful to plants and animals alike.
