Summer’s here, and apparently I’m going to spend every single day at the pool, at least if my kids have their way. I suppose there could be worse places to spend the summer, right?
Because we’ve been going to the pool every single day, I’ve been thinking a lot about sunscreen, both for me and for my kids. I’m a big believer in sunscreen — I’m fair skinned and I burn easily, and the last thing I want is to peel or wrinkle. So I am religious about slathering on the sunscreen, and I’ve found a few products that I love deeply and truly.
Ready? Here you go.
Neutrogena Spectrum+ Advanced Sunblock Lotion SPF 100+
Neutrogena makes the best sunscreens, for everyday and for the pool. Their new line is lightweight and non-greasy and offers complete, lasting coverage. I use it on my face, neck and chest. Perfect.
Coppertone SPORT Lotion SPF 50
There’s no school like the old school: we used Coppertone when I was a kid, and that smell still takes me back. Coppertone SPORT lasts and lasts, but it goes on dry, so there’s no sticky residue.
Clinique Long Last Glosswear SPF 15
Don’t forget your lips! Clinique’s Long Lasg Glosswear comes in light, wearable shades that last and last. Go bright with your sunglasses and big hat and you’ll look like a movie star.
Yes to Carrots Hydrating Body Lotion with SPF 30
Yes to Carrots is my favorite brand name ever; it’s so fun to say! And this lotion is fun to wear, for everyday, because sun screen isn’t just for the pool. I wear this on all the days when we’re going to be out and about running errands or just doing our thing. It has a pleasant, clean smell and goes on smooth and soft.
Remember: it takes a full ounce of sunscreen to completely coat the average adult. That’s about a shot glass full. Reapply every hour when you’re out at the beach or pool or lake. Use the right products the right way and you’ll have fun in the sun this summer without wrinkles next summer.
