There’s a whole lot of hoopla going on around sunscreen safety and
regulation and while we’re waiting on the FDA to get their act together,
the EWG has hooked us all up with great research and studies on the
best and safest sunscreens.

Though black doesn’t crack, protecting our brown from harmful UVA and
UVB rays that can lead to skin cancer is a serious issue ladies. You
