I use CeraVe for my daily sunscreen on my face. Then I add blobs of Banana Boat for Babies on my bike rides as it does not run into my eyes which can cause stinging or blurred vision. I use No-Ad that Consumer Reports rates well and Coppertone spray because it is cheap at Costco and I only spray my back while standing in the shower in case my jersey does not block the sun (plus, my family is usually still in bed when I leave for a ride). Finally, we use old-fashioned zinc oxide on our noses and cheeks while surfing as extra insurance.

My grandmother used to admonish us for getting a tan, "You will look like a peasant!" And that still rings in my ears.

I don't spend a lot of time out in the sun, but do try to remember to get out every evening before sunset to water my garden. I never wear sunscreen when I'll be outside for short times like that, or when I'm just out running errands and will only be in the car for 10-20 minutes at a time. It's healthy to get some sun.

 

On Saturdays though I spend hours outside at the farmers market. I'm kind of a hippie (so my husband tells me) and do not want some chemical laden product with 10 things more sure to give me cancer than too much sun. So instead, I make my own. Recipes are all over the internet and it's super easy to make. You'll know what's in it and don't have to question whether or not it's actually gluten free, although to be perfectly honest since gluten can't be absorbed through the skin, it doesn't matter. There are lots of things about sunscreen that make it far more dangerous to ingest, even to us, than gluten so always wash your hands thoroughly after applying.
