Before I hit the sunscreen aisle, are there any great natural options?
Gone are the days when physical sunscreens were hard to spread and left a white, chalky residue. New technology has made sunscreen particles smaller (but not small enough to penetrate skin), so they’re barely detectable, and work just as well. Here’s what’s new!
