Wellness Wednesday

Beach Hat
It's starting to look like summer around here, what with temperatures in the 80s (although we're still having some crazy lows, as well).  That means sunburns and other sun-caused skin damage might be just around the corner.  According to the Environmental Working Group, not all sunscreens are created equal nor are they all safe.  Their website has several articles about sunscreen, including Nine Surprising Facts about Sunscreen, Nanoparticles in Sunscreen, and What's Wrong with High SPF184 beach and sport sunscreens met with the Group's approval (I had no idea there were that many out there!).  Go here to read the very detailed and scientific (i.e., over my head) methodology that goes into their evaluations.  The main sunscreen page has links to other articles and reviews of other products that claim SPF protection.

Enjoy the sun - but do it safely!

Holy cow it was 76 here on Monday and today it's 50 degrees for the high - so stressful on my poor garden! Can't wait to be back worrying about sunscreen :) Although I do wear it every day on my face no matter what the weather :)

I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everybody
else encountering problems with your blog. It looks like
some of the text in your posts are running off the screen.
Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
This could be a issue with my internet browser because
I've had this happen previously. Thank you
