Looking Good & The Importance of SUNSCREEN

By Petunia
As Earl stated in Tuesday's blog post, just because you're in the wilderness doesn't mean you shouldn't still try to look your best! It is possible to meld fashion and function. Take this outfit, for instance. I may have been a little grumpy from lack of sleep (who knew the forest would be so noisy at night?), but I was still rockin' a stylish outfit at the breakfast table!

One thing we haven't mentioned yet, which is an essential for any outdoor excursion: sunscreen! You must protect that delicate skin. Our sunscreen of choice for this trip was Neutrogena SPF 70. Now, unfortunately, that particular brand and SPF does not get the best rating on the Cosmetics Database. Ms. Mommy wanted the highest SPF we had available while on the beach though, as Earl and I are very fair skinned and could burn quite easily! We doubled our sun protection by wearing long-sleeved rash guards on the beach, and wearing hats whenever possible. 

More information on safe, high SPF, sunscreens can be found here, at the Cosmetics Database
