The best natural sunscreens are enriched with organic ingredients and soothing to the touch, with a wide-range of protection for hours out in the sun – whether at home, at the beach, or walking across a parking lot in the middle of a summer heat wave. These sunscreens cover all aspects of your everyday, all-day, covering anytime you could and would be exposed to the damaging rays of the sun.
With the following 3 creams, you can feel safe while playing, working, or relaxing, and you can feel good about what you’re putting on your skin.
Completely hypoallergenic with 40 minutes of water resistance, this sunscreen stick is ideal for the smaller, harder-to-reach places on your body. It’s all great for your face, as the easy-to-maneuver tube settles softly into your pores, protecting your cheeks and nose from the damaging effect of full-on sunshine. Naturally blended with Shea butter and cucumbers, the sunscreen lasts for up to 2 hours in dry heat (with reapplication after hopping into the water) and should be applied 15 minutes prior to settling outside. Nourishing and rejuvenating, it’s an all-organic stick of protection for your everyday stroll in the sunny spots.
Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, Banana Boat is notorious for making amazing, all-natural products like this one. 100% organic and free of chemicals, this particular type of cream is gentlest on sensitive skin, with nourishing vitamins to strengthen your defenses against too much sunshine. It’s extremely water resistant and lasts in full-on sunny spots without breaking down or wearing away. However, as with all sunscreen, reapplication should be scheduled for every 2-3 hours. For the best results, use liberally and blend with your skin for a streak-free appearance.
I simply love the name of this brand! It helps that the products are fantastic and live up to their superior claims. Combined with aloe vera and zinc oxide, this sunscreen is in a convenient spray bottle for every day, all-day, allover protection. The lotion is creamy and needs light rubbing to blend with your skin, but the green tea extract is soothing and nourishing to the touch. It also has a pleasant, natural scent that’s reminiscent of aloe and coconuts (at least in my opinion)!
