sunscreen or unscreen?

the alchymista

 

summer is just around the corner here in austin so we're already slathering on the sunscreen when we go outside.  i have to admit that i douse koruna in it and then just kind of wipe the leftovers on my face and my tattoo.  we use  california baby on her and i sometimes get annoyed that when i spread it on thick, it makes us look purplish white.  then i read this information from the environmental working group and was reminded why i chose it.

it says that both UV radiation and many common sunscreen ingredients generate free radicals that damage DNA and skin cells, accelerate skin aging and cause skin cancer.

i love the sun.  i don't bask in it as much as i used to, but i take such pleasure in the warmth on my skin, the red blanket of sun on closed eyelids, the breeze that momentarily interrupts the heat.  i plan on seeing a lot of sun and water this summer, so i'm gonna need some sunscreen.

the environmental working group has a list of the best sunscreens and you can find your own sunscreen here to see how it's rated.

see y'all out in the sun.  i'll be the big pregnant one with sunglasses, a hat, and purplish sunscreen....
