There’s a whole lot of hoopla around sunscreen safety and regulation, and while we’re waiting on the folks over at the FDA to get their act together, the EWG can hook us up with great research and studies on the best and safest sunscreens.

Though black doesn’t crack, protecting our brown from harmful UVA and UVB rays that can lead to skin cancer is serious business, ladies. You don’t have to panic; just apply your daily layer of sunscreen and check out my list of great sunscreens that won’t break the bank.
