Oh my goodness. I am behind on everything these days! It’s 10 pm, so I don’t have too much time to go into it, but let’s just say, the exciting new changes I have in store for Clean & Proper are preventing me from saying hello. Feels counter-productive, but it is what it is! Today is especially crazy because The Beau and I are super excited to host his parents for the week. We always love when they come to visit. However, as with any houseguest, because I own my own company and work from home, I generally scramble to take care of as much work as I can in advance since I can’t really ask for time off!
Either way, I wanted to at least say a quick little hello. The weather here in Annapolis is finally decent. The rain has gone on for far longer than anyone can remember. Today it was beautiful. The sun was out, it was 81 degrees and Baby Mae and I got in plenty of outdoor time while I wrapped up some work and prepped our home for guests. Speaking of being outdoors, I am going to make today’s post for you easy as pie. Before you go outside, hop on over to the Environmental Working Group. They are AMAZING. And I don’t use all-caps that often.
Every year, the EWG publishes its Sunscreen Safety Guide. No matter the age of your child, this guide is so important, especially if your child is a little sun baby like Baby Mae. The EWG Sunscreen Guide rates every sunscreen on the market, dives into the chemicals found in sunscreens (including those that are ok for you), and discusses the common misconceptions of sunscreen labeling and what it all means.
Trust me, this is a huge help, especially when I get distracted by the packaging of such brands as Coppertone and Neutrogena, which until I had a child, were my two go-to options.When one brand offers thirty options, it’s confusing to know which is best for your health, environment and pocket. The EWG Sunscreen Safety Guide breaks it all down for you.
In the near future, I’ll offer a whole post on EWG and why they rock. But for today, check out their Sunscreen Guide!
