<p>I totally believe in covering up as opposed to using sunscreen whenever possible but, sometimes you have to wear sunscreen. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, now that we know nano and micronized particles aren't good for you - what is everyone using for sunscreen? </p>

<p>Last summer I used <a href="http://www.feelgoodnatural.com/health-food/Green-Beaver-SPF30-Sunscreen-Certified-Organic-90mL/GBSPF/" target="_blank">Green Beaver</a> and I also used <a href="http://www.badgerbalm.com/p-372-spf-30-lightly-scented-sunscreen.aspx" target="_blank">Badger</a> sunscreen.  I liked the lavendar scent of the Badger sunscreen, but it went on white and thick and showed up on clothing so I think I prefer Green Beaver overall.</p>

<p>My pediatrician, who is natural-minded, recommended Blue Lizard. It's hard to find, though. Would love more suggestions.<br>

<p>Some friends and I are getting together to make our own sunscreen. I have most of the ingredients already (just need to order the zinc oxide and I found a place with "regular size" particles; read up on nanoparticles before ordering) and they will chip in to cover the costs. It'll be a lot less expensive than those fancy organic brands and we'll make a lotion and a stick each. I found a dozen recipes on the internet, so now I just need to narrow it down by trying a few out.</p>
