Summer is in full swing. And while we all love some fun in the sun (the park! the ocean! the pool!), sunburn for our little ones and sun spots for us mamas is no fun. Unfortunately, many drugstore sunscreens have harsh chemicals that can affect our children’s’ sensitive skin, but luckily there are several newer natural brands on the market that are just as effective but not as harsh.
