The topic of sunscreen use is a controversial one. A good resource to use is the Environmental Working Group's Sunscreen Guide.

We don't necessarily agree with all of their recommendations, but it will give you a good background in the issues. Our favorite, what we carry at the clinic and use at home, is badger sunscreens.

Also remember that using sunscreens, even natural ones, block the body's ability to make Vitamin D, a crucial nutrient for health.

If you haven't had a recent test of your Vitamin D levels, please contact one of the doctors to discuss it.
