Taking care of your skin and body should always be your priority …
Does it happen to you like me? I’m a fan of summer. I love the vibe of sunny and hot days, perfect for going out to have fun and do things outside the house. Summer implies more exposure to the sun and although this exposure without any type of barrier is necessary to receive the much-needed vitamin D, it must be borne in mind that it is beneficial for only 10 to 15 minutes several times a week and at times where the sun is not so strong. Beyond that, it is tempting the devil, and being able to end with quite serious burns. So you need to protect yourself from ultraviolet rays using sunglasses, hats and of course, sun protection creams.
When it comes to choosing sunscreen creams, I always go for the most natural and chemical-free options. Why? Well, because our skin is the largest organ we have and it absorbs almost everything we put on it. Most of the sun protection creams in the market they are loaded with chemicals that can cause health problems such as hormonal imbalances, malformations in fetuses or even cancer. So the more natural the better.
My vital resource for finding chemical and ingredient free options that are harmful to health is the EnvironmentalWorkingGroup or ewg.org and that’s where I went to offer you some viable, chemical-free and safe alternatives to protect you from the sun. Next, I offer you 5 alternatives:

- If you are active and looking for one waterproof option, but with more protection, this is a sports version that has 50 SPF coverage and lasts 80 minutes. Also without harmful chemicals to your skin or the environment.
- good one option for the little ones, waterproof and lasting approximately 40 minutes:
