I’m not sure if don’t fry day is about not frying your food or not frying your body. Since summer is almost here, at least unofficially, and the Environmental Working Group just came out with its sunscreen guide, let’s talk about not frying your body. Getting burned increases your risk of skin cancer. While many sunscreens do contain toxins, there are good safe options. Obviously, I am a fan of Ava Anderson Non Toxic. If you don't use that, please use one of the safe products recommended by the EWG.
It is also important to follow guidelines regarding sunscreen application and reapplication. Most people don't apply enough and don't reapply often enough. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, you should use 1 ounce (that's a shotglass) each time you lather up and reapply every two hours or after swimming - you can adjust the amount based on your size and how much skin you have to cover. Wear a hat, cover up where you can, and don't spend the middle hours of the day in the sun. Stay safe this summer and have fun!
