Sunscreen : Sensitive Skin : Beach Babies

Now that the Summer Sun is fast approaching its time to pull out the beach towels, swim suits, and of course we can’t forget sunscreen. Protecting my daughters pale, sensitive skin is of the utmost importance. I knew from previous experience that I couldn’t just walk into Wal-Mart and purchase whatever was on the shelf. Doing that could cause her smooth skin to go haywire and I didn’t need a repeat of that!

Honestly, I didn’t know where to start!? That’s when a friend told me about the EWG Guide to Sunscreens website. EWG stands for Environmental Working Group.  This group rates sunscreens based on their level of each chemical ingredient. I found the website to be very helpful when searching for the safest sunscreen for my toddlers skin. Click on any of the listed sunscreens and there will be a break down of each ingredient used, amount used, and the level of hazard. The EWG uses the information they have regarding each ingredient  to give an overall score for safety.

After combing through the list carefully, I decided on California Baby Super Sensitive Skin. While it is a bit on the pricey side, I feel its total worth it in the end! Putting lotions and other products on my daughters skin in the past that were full of chemicals, caused her to break out something terrible. So, when it came to sunscreen safety, I didn’t want to repeat past mistakes!

California Baby is a great sunscreen, which I highly recommend! It protects my daughters skin from the harmful rays of the sun without all the harsh side affects of hazardous chemicals.

What beach bag essentials do you use to keep you and your family safe in the summer sun?
