You know what I hate? Orange people. In fact, and don’t like anyone who is excessively bronze. I’ll be laughing in 10 years when your botoxing your face. I stick to a healthy glow garnered from a day here and there at the beach. Also, I am SUCH a white person. So sunscreen is important!

But a lot of sunscreens contain harmful products. So what to do?

Voila: Via’s summer tips page, the three safest sunscreens:

“After investigating nearly 1,000 products, the Environmental Working Group put together a special report scoring sunscreens on a scale from zero (no hazard) to 10 (high hazard). Only one (Badger) got no strikes – check out the top three.”

Badger sunscreen, SPF 30

Trukid Sunny Days Facestick Mineral Sunscreen UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum, SPF 30+

Purple Prairie Botanicals Sun Stuff, SPF 30

All of these products can be found at Skin Deep, which lets you search for your products and see how safe they are. Very cool!
