As it starts to warm up, it's time to get serious about sunscreen again. It's a year-round essential, of course, but in summer I simply cannot leave the house without it. When it comes to choosing a natural sunscreen, there are a range of options to suit you or your family's needs. Whether you're looking for a facial sunscreen, kids sunscreen or body sunscreen, there is a formula for every age, skin type and lifestyle. Here are three of the Nourished Life staff's picks.
Life Basics SPF 30 All Natural Facial Sunscreen
Designed for daily use, the Life Basics SPF 30 All Natural Facial Sunscreen can be used as a facial primer, enriched with moisturising Rosehip Oil, Green Tea and Calendula to leave a satin finish which is ideal under makeup. Active ingredient Zinc Oxide provides broad spectrum protection. Lightweight and non-greasy, this vegan formula actually feels more like a facial lotion rather than a sunscreen, with a light scent from calming Rose Geranium. Also suitable for use on the body and children.

With all sunscreens avoid contact with eyes and if irritation persists discontinue use. Sunscreen is only one part of sun protection. Wear protective clothing, hats and sunglasses when exposed to the sun, and stay in the shade where possible. Prolonged high-risk sun exposure should be avoided. Frequent reapplication and use in accordance with the directions is required for effective sun protection. Always read the label and use only as directed.
