Sunscreen Roundup for Skin Cancer Awareness Month

by Sara Cifani

Here comes the sun! Time to accessorize with big floppy summer hats, sunglasses, and these natural sunscreens to keep your skin protected from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Prolonged exposure to the sun without sunscreen protection may result in skin cancer,  and those chemical sunscreens may be doing more harm than good to your skin.

Throw these natural sunscreens in your beach bag for a fun day in the sun without the burn.
