I admit it. Last year someone told me that sunscreen was one of the most toxic-filled things we can put on our skin, but I dug my head in the sand. Seriously, I was overwhelmed by the fact that the biggest names in sunscreen were including harmful chemicals that were seeping deep into my body through my skin. So, knowing that, why didn’t I switch to a safer sunscreen then? The honest truth is that I never thought far enough ahead to. Sunscreen seemed to be the one thing I forgot to pack every time we arrived at the beach or anytime we found ourselves out in the sun for the day, and, as a consequence, I ended up buying whatever was on sale or promotion at the local drugstore or beach shop.
This year is different. This year I know more. This year I am prepared. This year I will keep a supply of safe, Beautycounter sunscreen in both cars, my purse and my pool bag so there will be no need to run out and have to buy an unsafe brand or borrow from someone else.

PS: SHORT EXPLANATION OF WHY SUNSCREEN IS SO DANGEROUS:
The simple scoop on sunscreens is that most out there do more harm than good (about 80% contain oxybenzone, which mimics hormones and disrupts the hormone system and / or causes allergic skin reactions)…but there ARE some good and safe ones out there, so do you research and make good choices with your consumer dollars! I believe that chemicals that can disrupt the reproductive system and endocrine balance should be avoided…and this (sunscreens) is one area in which I can minimize exposure for myself, my hubby and my baby, so I’m gonna do it!
The easy answer for me is Beautycounter’s Sun Protect options, the cream and the stick…both about to arrive at my doorstep so I am ready for the next day of sunshine! Why Beautycounter for sunscreen?
