Sunscreen is always a must have, but with summer travel season quickly approaching you are sure to be reaching for that sunscreen more often. Here are some guidelines and baby sunscreen recommendations to keep in mind when you are picking out sunscreen:

1. Stay away from the spray on sunscreen.

2. If using a chemical sunscreen make sure "avobenzone" is on the label. If you are opting for a natural sunscreen be sure it contains "zinc oxide." 

3. Steer clear of sunscreen with SPF over 50.

4. Avoid products with oxybenzone and vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) on the label.
