Just a friendly reminder that pregnancy makes you more prone to sunburn... as I was reminded of myself today. Oops... where's the aloe? Check out EWG's guide to sunscreens to pick out one that is safe and not full of a bunch of chemicals.
Friendly Pregnancy Sunburn Reminder
Yeah, I'm with you. I know I *should* use something better... but I just have to think of the sun and I'll burn. I burn with sunblock and a shirt on, sitting under an umbrella.
I'm pretty pale myself, though living in Arizona, Texas, and now Maryland has given me more of a tan base over the last 8 years. I used to use SPF 50+ but I have read that much beyond SPF 30 is ineffective and just advertising. I switched to mineral based sunscreens that are SPF 30 a couple years ago and find them very effective (when I put them on! ). Some of my favorites are Jason's, Badger and All Terrain.
