I’m sure many of you heard about the new laws banning hazardous sunscreen here on the Hawaiian Islands to preserve our coral reef and marine life.
I think this is brilliant, not only are we saving ourselves from harmful chemicals that I can’t even pronounce. We are bringing awareness to the effects of these chemicals in sunscreens on the market today. We all know our skin is the largest organ and absorbs whatever we put on it and goes directly into our bloodstream. I cringe when I see people on the beach lathering chemical enhances sunscreen on their children’s skin.
I was delighted to come across Michael, and his incredible natural sunscreen products “Little Hands” at the Waimea farmers’ market on Saturday at Pukalani stables, Parker Ranch (67-139 Pukilani rd. Waimea).
Michael invented this beautiful all-natural product line that does not damage our coral reefs and marine life and is a beautiful complement to our skin.
He created this sunscreen product line when his daughter was born, and he did not want to put the chemical endued sunscreen on his child’s skin. After googling some of the ingredients, it shocked him to know how harmful they are. After many years of research, he finally came out with an FDA approved “Little Hands.” I highly recommend we support his life-enhancing sunscreen.

Next time you are in a hurry buying cheap sunscreen in the store, just remember you have a choice, make it a healthy one.
We have one body in this life, so let’s take good care of it and bring our awareness to everything we put in it and on it.
Enjoy this Bow Yoga Pose
Lie on your stomach, bend your knees. Bring your heels near your buttocks. Reach back with your arms and hold your ankles. Let your weight rest on your stomach rather than your pelvis.
Raise your knees, feet, and shoulder further by pulling your ankles up with your hands. Always feel your belly moving slightly to your spine as you do backbend poses. If you like, you can exit this pose by letting go of your legs without letting them fall towards the floor, thus building up some additional strength and “floating” over you.
Try to maintain the feeling of opening and giving length to the heart and lower back at all times in the pose.
Looking forward to hearing from you, and making your Hawaii dream home a reality.
