Are You Sun Smart?

July is UV Safety Month and we wanted to discuss the importance of protecting yourself from the sun’s harmful UV rays. While avoidance and proper clothing is key, it isn’t always possible, so sunscreen becomes your best protection. However, many sunscreens contain harmful chemicals that can be detrimental to your health. Each year the Environmental Working Group compiles a database which ranks sunscreens based on their chemical components to ensure the protection you use isn’t harmful to your body. Now in its 10th year we invite you to check out the best and worst sunscreens, and be sure to search the brand you use to ensure it is the safest for your overall health!
