Sunscreen Basics Easily Explained July 21, 2011

I have my husband to thank for this post since he emailed me the link to this blog.  Though this is a design blog it contains a pretty great post on sunscreen.  But this isn’t your typical written post; the post is an illustration/graph covering sunscreen basics so the images and the words work together seamlessly to convey a lot of good information.  See below:



Me being me there are two points I have to quibble with.  The first one is the repetition of the EWG’s “information” on dangerous sunscreen ingredients.  Keep in mind there is a lot of debate on this topic and few experts agree with the EWG.  (See my post Nothing New: The EWG’s 2011 Sunscreen Report for more details on that subject)

Yes, the sun feels great and does our body’s good, but there is never an excuse for going outside without sunscreen on.  (See my post Let’s Debunk Some Sunscreen Myths for more information on sun exposure and Vitamin D)
