what's your preferred sunscreen for you and/or your kids? do you use something "mainstream" or "natural".... if natural do you get the same protection from it?

We use whatever we can find that is natural. Hasn't been a problem.

We don't use sunscreen.

Don't like th idea if slathering nanoparticles and chemicals all over our skin.

My kids and I are very fair. Blonde hair, blue eyes, freckles.

They are 6 and 4 and have never burned. We just buy super thin, cool clothing with long sleeves.. and they always wear hats.

We also try to avoid the hottest part of the day.. play outside between 8am and 11am and again after 2pm

We are a very outdoorsy family so when we are outage during the hottest part of the day we just make sure we are covered up or playing in the shade :)
