Yahoooooo, summer is just around the corner! The days are getting longer and sunshinier, so you betta believe I’m whippin’ out my gigantor floppy hats, oversized shades, and shellacking SPF up the ass (not literally). 😉 Sunscreen is  MUST at all times of the year, but especially during these hotter months. Too much sun = premature fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots… no thanky!

While I’m a huge proponent of sunscreen, I’m only down with the all-natural ones that aren’t loaded with crap (a.k.a. toxic chemicals and artificial ingredients). I wanted to highlight some of my faves, so here ya go!
