For All You Vitamin D Addicts

One of the most important considerations to keep in mind now that you're probably overdosing on vitamin D is the sunscreen you use... if you're using any at all. Many sunscreens we use today have chemicals that can be carcinogenic if inhaled and blends for added fragrance that can be an allergen. Additionally, a lot of these chemicals wash off at the beach and can disrupt the marine life. In other words it's not a bad idea to give a bit more time to choosing the right protection. A well recommended cream is Burt's Bees Chemical-Free Sunscreen- it might not rub in as well as other creams but it's a smart choice, unless of course you're into looking like a prune when you're older :)
