Summer is officially here and for us New Yorkers that means lots of time outside and in the sun. One of my biggest skincare tips for young looking skin is to always wear sunscreen and a hat when outside in the summer. However, its also important for me not to use harmful chemicals on my skin and its just as important to use ingredients that wont harm the earth and oceans. So I tried a few natural sunscreens out and I wanted to tell you my top picks.
