Here’s a quick tip – not so much a homeschool one, but for parents with kids who have been chomping at the bit to get out of the house now that the weather is a bit nicer:

Make sure you’re using a sunscreen that is not only effective, but also safe!

I stumbled on this amazing online Sunscreen Database published by Environmental Working Group, a non-profit research organization.  They are a third party who rates the safety and effectiveness of cosmetic products to give you the information you need.

From their website:  “Our aim was to fill in where companies and the government leave off: companies are allowed to use almost any ingredient they wish, and our government doesn’t require companies to test products for safety before they’re sold. EWG’s scientists built Skin Deep to be a one-of-a-kind resource, integrating our in-house collection of personal care product ingredient listings with more than 50 toxicity and regulatory databases.”

So, grab that bottle of sunscreen from last year, type it in to their “Find Your Sunscreen” page, and see how it rates.  You may be very surprised.  I was!
