Over the past three decades, more people have developed skin cancer than all other cancers. Each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than breast, prostate, lung, and colon cancers combined. The good news is you can make a difference in your life and teach your children habits now to prevent this terrible skin disease later. Here are a few preventative measures to implement.
- Make applying daily sunscreen a morning routine like brushing your teeth.
- If at all possible, try to stay in the shade between the hours of 10 am – 2 pm.
- Wear a broad-brimmed hat and UV protectant sunglasses.
- Select an appropriate broad spectrum SPF 50 or higher sunscreen.
Neutrogena wants to help you protect your child’s future and kick off the summer season with an extensive line of sun products for babies 6 months of age to adults. The dermatologist recommended sunscreen products include CoolDry Sport Spray, Lotion, or Sunscreen Stick SPF 50, Beach Defense Spray SPF 70, and Allure’s Best of Beauty awarded Wet Skin Swin*Humidity*Sweat SPF 50 formulas. They are water resistant for up to 80 minutes which makes the perfect time to break, hydrate, and reapply.
Neutrogena has always been our family’s go-to brand for cosmetics, oil-free cleansers, and moisturizers. I was really impressed to find such an impressive array of sunscreen for the entire family. My kids like to stay in the pool until their little fingers and toes begin to wrinkle. The Wet Skin Kids Beach & Pool SPF 70+ offers full strength protection on wet or dry skin. This is clever because my kids do not want to wait until they are completely dry to reapply. You know it is torture to have to dry off and then wait for sunscreen to soak in!
If you’re looking for more of a naturally sourced sunscreen for your children, you’ll want to try Pure & Free Baby SPF 60+. This fragrance-free sunscreen was awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance award. It won’t run into eyes or sting which is a big deal for anyone with a baby or toddler! It contains zinc oxide among other ingredients that are gentle on your baby’s skin. Pure & Free is PABA-free and dermatologist recommended.
I love the Age Shield face SPF 110 oil-free lotion sunscreen. I apply it under my makeup because I’m not getting any younger ya know?! I mean 4o and up is fabulous but no one wants to look their age, right? This formula features Helioplex broad spectrum uva-uvb which is great for sunburn and anti-aging protection.
I believe my favorite formula of all has been the Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch SPF 100+. The texture is lightweight and feels silky when you apply it. It has a fresh scent that smells amazing. This formula is recommended as an effective UV Sunscreen by the Skin Cancer Foundation. It is proven to protect skin from over 99% sunburn damage.
Sun exposure is one of the biggest risk factors, but it’s also the most preventable. Our mission? To reduce the risk of skin cancer to the smallest number possible, zero. If we all protect with SPF, we’ll be one step closer to this goal. ~ Neutrogena
