Full Spectrum Body Sunscreens – 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic

Today I’m sharing full spectrum facial sunscreens and I thought it only made sense to add in some full spectrum body sunscreens!. You can check out what a full spectrum sunscreen is here. Full spectrum body sunscreens are a bit easier to find than facial sunscreens, but it is interesting to see that there is basically only one very commonly used chemical sunscreen combination, with very little variation. 1. MDSolarSciences Mineral Moisture Defense Body Broad Spectrum SPF 50 UVA-UVB Sunscreen…

Don’t try this at home

I’ve given these kids some serious hang time. I’m sure it started like it did for any other dad out there, or mom for that matter.

And so I settled in my conference chair and was surrounded by about 200+…
