  • Other than shade, I don't know about sunscreen

    As for bug repellent - if you tie a fabric softener sheet to your belt loop it will keep the bugs away.

  • There are several out there that you can look into. We have lots of products in our home that are toxin free and safer for us because both of my daughter's have sensitivities. One is sensitive to soaps, shampoos, and laundry care chemicals and the other has eczema. We use Melaleuca's Sun Shadesâ„¢ Sport SPF 45+ Continuous Spray Sunscreen or Melaleuca's Sun Shadesâ„¢ Mineral Plus SPF 30+ Sunscreen. We love them both. Hope that helps.
