Summer Fun With Aveeno Sunscreen

I have received information and materials from ©Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. 2018.The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post. #SunnyMoments #CollectiveBias

Applying sunscreen is so important to protect our skin on both adults and especially children. We love getting our vitamin D in this household and continuously protecting myself and my children’s health is the upmost priority above all.  That is why I trust dermatologist recommended, AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE® Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 70 for myself, and Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection® Sensitive Skin Zinc Oxide Sunscreen SPF 50 for my baby.

Living in a place where there is sun most everyday of the year, with the occasional rain, sunscreen has become a daily ritual for my skin to protect it from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays.  AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE® Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 70 contains ENVIROGUARDTM Technology which provides long-lasting, broad spectrum photostable protection against these rays.  That is something we should all be looking for in a sunscreen to have proper protection.  What I love more about this specific sunscreen is that I can use it both on my body and face without the worry that it will clog my pores.  On the contrary provides 24-hr skin hydration against chlorine, salt water and sweat, leaving my skin actually feeling so soft and hydrated throughout the day.  To be protected all day, I like to put on my sunscreen at least 15 minutes prior to stepping outdoors as suggested.  Once I have been out for about 80 minutes, I like to re-apply all over again, as many times as needed during the day when I am out in the sunlight.

As any mother, I am always looking out for what is best for my baby.  Finding the perfect product to protect her but at the same time be a healthy option for her is very important.  Thankfully, knowing that Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection® Sensitive Skin Zinc Oxide Sunscreen SPF 50 is free of all parabens, phthalates, dyes, fragrances & chemical sunscreen ingredients, makes me feel so comfortable applying it all over her skin.  I feel comfortable knowing that it is mild, tear-free and clinically shown to be as gentle as water, in case it gets near her eyes.  One thing I really appreciate from this lightweight formula is that it is non-greasy and non-sticky to the touch.  I know that can be really uncomfortable for babies.

Just like I do for myself, I always apply her sunscreen 15 minutes prior to going outside and continuously re-apply about every 80 minutes.  I like to keep both my sunscreen and her sunscreen near me or around the place where my baby is playing so that I am constantly reminded to re-apply when needed.  My daughter still has that sensitive baby skin so she can easily get sunburn very easily.  Therefore it is very important that I am constantly reminded to re-apply her sunscreen at the same time I do or sometimes before me when I towel dry her if needs a break from the water.  Sometimes I will also set an alarm on my phone to remind me because we all know when you are having fun time just flies.

My baby is definitely an outdoor baby.  She loves being outside and getting wet most of the time.  So I try to find ways to entertain her for hours everyday during these hot summer days.  I try to be as creative as I can without breaking the bank and using what I have around the house for these activities.  Who can say no to free entertainment!  Trust me I don’t mind her spending all day outside, I know Aveeno is there to protect her skin.  Here area 5 free outdoor summer activities that will have kids playing outside for hours.

5 Free Fun Outdoor Summer Activities For Kids

Cup and Sponge Activity

Materials: Sponges, Tub, Water, Cups

Instructions: Pour water in the tub and soak the sponges in the water.  Next stack the cups into a pyramid.  Using the wet sponges, try to knock all the cups down.

Fishing For Shapes

Materials: Sponges(can substitute for small toys), Tub, Water, Spoon(used as fish net), Scissors

Instructions: Cut the sponges into shapes and apply water to the tub.  Apply the shapes into the tub.  Using the spoon fish the shapes out.(you can have children fish all the shapes, fish all the blue, etc.)

Water Art

Materials: Paint Brush, Container, Water

Instructions: Under direct sun, use the paint brush to make art on the cement or walls.

Bubbles

Materials: Bubble Soap, Container, Empty Water Bottle, Scissors, Sock

Instructions: Cut the bottom of the water bottle off(about 1 in).  Wrap sock over wide open side of the bottle.  Pour bubble soap into the container(if you don’t have bubble soap, use water down dish soap).  Dunk the sock portion into the bubble soap and blow out from the other side of the water bottle.

Sprinklers

Materials: Water hose with a sprinkler head, Under ground sprinklers will work too.

Instructions:  Turn on sprinklers and let the kids run through the sprinklers.  Oldest activity in the book but always provides hours of fun while watering your grass at the same time.

So this summer don’t forget to protect your skin and equally important that of baby.  There is a great deal over at CVS, Buy 1, Get 1 50% off Aveeno Suncare (6/17-6/30): http://cbi.as/a1ysa .  Great deal to buy both at the same time or simply buy multiple bottles because I know I go through multiple bottles of sunscreen during the summer for both mine and baby.

Taking care of our skin against sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays is crucial all year round but especially this time of year.  If that is not enough of a incentive, knowing that using a good sunscreen like Aveeno can help decrease the risk of skin cancer and early aging should.  Remember it is not only about applying Aveeno sunscreen but also remembering to re-apply sunscreen as the hours go by.
