A press release from the Environmental Working Group.

Don't forget to stock up on sunscreen! Before going outside, make sure you're covered with one of the Environmental Working Groups (EWG) best sunscreens for 2013.

They have just released their 2013 Sunscreen Guide rating the safety and efficacy of more than 1,400 sunscreens, lotions, lip products and makeups that advertise sun protection.

This year, 25 percent of products on the market meet the EWG's researchers' standards by offering strong and broad UV protection and posing few safety concerns. Because you've been using their guide to buy better sunscreens every year, EWG has seen the market respond — giving you more options on your safe sunscreen search. Your action matters!

What sunscreens made the list this year? Click here to see EWG's 2013 Sunscreen Guide.

Even though a quarter of the sunscreens the EWG looked at made their best list, they are not enough. The Environmental Working Group won't stop working until you have more options. The reality is, the vast majority of sunscreens available aren't as good as most of us think they are. EWG's advice to you is to use the tips in their guide: wear sun-protective clothing, stay in the shade to reduce intense exposure and schedule regular skin examinations by a doctor.
