Margie's monday mommy confession

As you can see from my photos, I have 2 children with extremely fair and sensitive skin so it is VERY important that I sunscreen them beyond the call of duty. I have to confess...there are times that I skip applying sunblock because I think, "oh it's later in the day and we won't be outside too long..."

Well today I am vowing to no longer take this approach! In an effort to protect my kids as best I can, I have done a little research. I came across this article "How Safe and Effective Are Sunscreens?" so I thought I would share....the findings are a little scary.

Here is an excerpt from the article listing the sunscreens NOT recommended:

Coppertone NutraShield, Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock, SPF 30
Huggies Little Swimmers Sunscreen, Moisturizing Blue Melon Splash
Jason Natural Cosmetics Sunbrellas: Complete Block Spray, SPF 26
CVS Sport Sunblock Lotion, SPF 30
