    Try natural chamomile tea when you wash your face. It calms the skin and also has a sterilizing effect.

    I never "sunbathe". Whenever I am in the sun I am working, exploring the wilderness, hunting, or playing a sport. I never purposely lay out in the sun, and I only expose myself the the sun when it is necessary. If I'm worried about getting burned, I'll cover my skin with a clothing or a head covering.

    I'll have to try that some time.

    Hey, it's your skin. If you prefer to run the risk of getting skin cancer instead of using sunscreen, that's your choice. But, I'd never recommend or sanction that train of thought to anyone I have influence over.

    I don't have any plans of influencing others to do what I do. Everyone else I know uses sunscreen, it's just my personal choice not to.

    Just because you don't attempt to bake yourself like a potato does not mean you're not at risk. A mere couple hours of exposure a day can amount to plenty more damage in the longrun than you might have imagined. Play it safe and wear some sunscreen, at least to cover the parts which you can't by clothing. There are brands on the market which aren't loaded with chemicals. Try the organic food stores.

    I think it depends on more than just one factor: the period of the day, the place where you stay mostly(shady or more exposed to the sun) and also the part of your body which is exposed.(Your shoulders get burned easier than your arms.)
    However I don't use sunscreen either, I agree that the skin must be treated with care.

    Does anyone else have a somewhat similar lifestyle?
    I use Tom's of Maine toothpaste, and I think it has helped a little. Since the skin is semi-porous, I try to limit what I put on my skin. I only get a farmer tan when driving.
    However, I have not gone so far as to take showers with non-chlorinated water, and I still eat from plastic containers. When I have a choice, I drink from a glass bottle.
    Processed foods have quite a few chemicals in them, you can search at Rense. For example, if I am purchasing frozen chicken, I like for the package to say chicken and nothing else.
    Sometimes I look at it as my excuse for not using lawn fertilizers, or some household cleaning chemicals.
    The only ways I have reduced exposure to electrical radiation is by not using my electric blanket anymore, and by using a headset for the mobile phone. I still use a microwave, computer, and tv.
    I have been on and off with drinking green tea.

    I always have my shoulders, back, and chest covered. The only parts of my body that are exposed are my forearms, hands, and head. I'm also never in the sun for long periods of time, and when I'm resting I sit in the shade.

    I don't use the Caveman diet myself, but I think it is something good to think about. It does not necessarily contain what you think it would.

    The chemical products that I use the most are shampoo and conditioner (formulated for blonde hair, apparently, and also to give moisture to the hair) and sunscreen. If I don't wear sunscreen and I expose myself for even less than an hour my skin becomes burnt. And it hurts. I would rather have sunscreen on than not.

    I guess also I ocassionally wear makeup and use moisturiser.

    When I'm sick I drink tea and eat honey. I don't really take pills.

    I never really buy prepackaged food (sometimes i buy biscuits, but usually from the bakery)... I cook most things.

    I ride my bicycle everywhere.
