My 18 year old friend and I spent the day in 100 degree weather yesterday, cooling off in the blissful waters of the Sacramento River in Shasta. As you can see, she has beautiful skin and although not wearing her hat, was fully protected with land and reef friendly 40 SPF Badger sunscreen. After a full afternoon of play in the water, she was happily burn-free.
Probably the least fun sunscreen to wear, it is by far the best choice. It is simply 98% organic, broad spectrum, water resistant, unscented, hypoallergenic minerals. Although it says Clear Zinc on the tube, there is really no such thing. You will be smearing a white film on your skin that will be heavy and noticeable and repel water.
However, you will not burn! Neither will you kill any living creatures or organisms in your efforts to protect yourself.
There are just a handful of sunscreen products on the market like Badger and I highly recommend you choose these ones.
Using SPF daily when we are barely outdoors is unnecessary, clogging to the skin and if light and thin enough to be mixed in with a moisturizer, will be a chemical and almost impossible to be healthy for you or the planet.
Take your SPF seriously, buy the real deal and DON'T FORGET YOUR HAT!
