Summer Lovin'- Practice Safe Sun Fun Pack Giveaway!
If you know my family, you know we are on par with Nicole Kidman for pale skin. Blue eyes, blonde hair- we weren't exactly meant for catching rays. I was able to recently test out Sunscreen Bands- a product that monitors UVA and UVB exposure. You activate the band by exposing it to sunlight, apply sunscreen to both yourself and the band, and the band fades to lavender when it is time to reapply. It then fades to cream when yoiu have hit your max UV exposure for the day. Check out the video for more info:
Here is my little gal wearing one, so yes- they fit everyone!
They are on sale on Amazon: $10 for a 10 pack plus $1 off coupon. Click here to purchase:
I hate to admit this, but I often forget to actually apply sunscreen to my arm and torso. I am so concerned about getting the stuff on my kids that I totally space on it for ME. My solution? Coolibar. They have a line of clothing that is blocks 98% of UVA/UVB rays and is UPF 50+. Bonus- the clothing is absolutely gorgeous. I went to an event where they had a huge rack of Coolibar clothing to check out, and I was already planning my purchases before I knew that it was sun protection. They are having a 25% off sale right now- grab gorgeous pieces for the end of summer and get prepared for next year (or for that beach vacation you will be dreaming about come February...). Here is the dress I have- it comes in navy or coral, comes with a belt and the fabric dries super quick:
They also have super cute hats, packable, floppy, bucket, the whole lineup!
My little one can only last so long in the sun...like, 5 minutes. The problem? My 3 year old wants to stay at the beach ALL. DAY. LONG. I bought this play shade at the beginning of the summer and have used it dozens of times. It is UPF 50+ and literally pops up in 1 second. It is almost as easy to take down, and it folds into a small, flat circular carrying case. You can anchor it with the 4 included stakes or fill the side pockets with sand. I take it everywhere- the park, the beach, the pool.
Grab a similar one on Amazon here for around $50:
