Many thanks to Block Island Organics Sunscreen for sending me sunscreen to try out. I received product in consideration for this post, but the thoughts and opinions are all mine.
Block Island Organic Sunscreen – Not just for summer…
While it might seem odd to write a post about sunscreen as the weather is cooling down, I think it’s the perfect time for everyone to revisit the topic of sunscreen. As a freckled redhead with a family history of skin cancers, staying safe in the sun is a pretty important topic to me. I’ve had many bad sunburns, unfortunately; but one of my most painful sunburns ever came at this time of the year on a cool, gorgeous fall day. I was visiting my boyfriend at the time, the man I’ve been married to for 18 years now, and we were at a football at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. It was a cool day, but the sun was shining hard. I had on a sweater and jeans, and had sunscreen on my face, yet my hands were exposed. And wouldn’t you know it, I burned the tops of my hands – because as a freckled red head, I burn very, very easily. It was seriously one of the most painful burns I can remember, and I’ve had some doozies in my 40 plus year.
