How to Have Safe Fun in the Sun 

How to Have Safe Fun in the Sun

by Terri Bonin

The summer is finally here! Beach days are upon us with lots of swimming, playing, and spending hours and hours in the sun. I absolutely love the sun but what I don’t love is having to slather my kids with toxic sunscreen. Most of the chemicals in sunscreen seem like made-up words and there are a lot of people questioning whether it’s the sun giving people cancer or the sunscreen they’re using to protect themselves from the sun in the first place. I have never felt too comfortable with sunscreen but what other choice did I have? I’m a mama and I want to protect my littles as best I can.

That’s why I was so excited when…


Fun in the Sun SPF


Young Living came out with a sunscreen last year! How exciting to finally have something completely plant-based that is also effective at preventing sunburns. The only option they had at the time was 10 SPF which to me was much better than nothing and certainly better than the alternative of slathering ourselves with chemical-laden sunscreens, but now they have a sunscreen that is SPF50!!!


So for those who burn easily or those who are like my friend Meggan who never used to burn but does after undergoing chemotherapy, there is a plant-based chemical-free sunscreen option for you! This sunscreen is recommended by the skin cancer foundation to be used daily to reduce the risk of cancer. I don’t know of other plant-based sunscreens recommended to protect against cancer. Actually, I don’t know of any other purely plant-based sunscreens!

Hi Friend… I’m married to my hubs who also happens to be my favorite dentist! Brace yourself for this next part: We have eleven amazing kiddos, on purpose! Said kids are growing up fast and multiplying now, too! So our family is basically the size of a small city!

I’ve home-schooled our children for 25 years and have several more to go until we graduate our youngest who is nine. I was crunchy before it was cool and used essential oils before it became a fad. Therefore I fill this space with thoughts on marriage, mom hacks, wellness tips, and peeks into our crazy, messy, beautiful life. I hope you find this space happy and helpful!
