Happy first week of spring! Longer days and warmer weekends mean more time in the sun. Yay for vitamin D! We all know that limiting time in the sun and covering up is the best way to avoid getting burnt but, come on, I know you are not going to hide out inside in the middle of the day. You are an adventurer. You live to be outside. You are stoked to get on that board or throw on those hiking shoes and spend the whole day out in nature. That is not going to change. So, it is time to get that sunscreen supply ready.
As promised, behold the first round of sunscreen reviews in which you will get my take on five sunscreens. (In case you missed it, you can find my post on how to pick the perfect sunscreen here.) This first round includes only mineral sunscreens. Even though I think mineral is the way to go for both your health and the planet’s, I recognize the pros and cons to both so you will get a mix of mineral and chemical sunscreens in the next post. I’m still on a mission to find the perfect sunscreen for super active days, so send any recommendations my way and I’ll be sure to check them out! If you have any questions about the sunscreen you’re using shoot me an email: Kristen@WayfareCollective.com.
Summer may be nearing its end but, if you're in the Collective, that doesn't mean that your basket of sunscreen will be put into hibernation. Here in California we're looking forward to fall—one of the most beautiful times of year when the crowds have died down and the weather is at it's best. This may mean island sailing trips, backpacking adventures, and (if you're like me) you may already be dreaming of higher altitudes in hopes that the long rumored El Nino year does in fact dump Sierra snow. Whatever the adventure may be, there will surely be sun on your cheeks.
