Caribbean Tip of the Day
In need of sunscreen? Consider a local, natural type. Coconut Oil is said to be very healthy for your skin (and hair), and has sun protection properties. But if you're planning on staying in the sun for longer than 30 minutes we suggest you wear a rash-guard, a hat, sunglasses and stay in the shade. If that's not an option consider applying a generous amount of high SPF organic sunscreen you get at most health stores in the Caribbean.
