A Daily Essential for Myself + The Kids
3 Ways to Make Packing Easier for a House Move
More than ever before, it seems the understanding that sunscreen is not ONLY to be used at the beach or pool is becoming mainstream. It’s easy, though, to think that way since those two activities generally mean hours outdoors in direct sunlight, but anytime we are outdoors sun protection is important.
Even on hazy and overcast days, the UVA or UV rays can cause damage to your skin.
One of my favorite things to do with the kids is to be outside, whether we’re swimming in the pool, playing at the playground, or scootering up and down our street. Since we spend so much time outside, sunscreen is vital. Even though my kids are fairly used to it at this point, the application process isn’t always the most enjoyable (for either party!). I’d tried everything from sprays to creams and had yet to find a sunscreen that I really loved that was easy to apply.
More recently, I’ve been using Supergoop! SunnyScreen on my kids and it makes the whole process so quick and easy. I love that the products contain clean ingredients and aren’t loaded with other unnecessary things.
The SunnyScreen 100% Mineral Sunscreen Stick SPF 50 has been my dream product. It glides onto the kids’ skin so effortlessly, so the application process is quick and easy. It can be used on the whole body, but the ease of the product is really showcased in the face application. Luke always reminds me not to get the sunscreen in his eyes, which has never happened, but I imagine it’s unsettling to have someone rubbing a product all over your face as a child. This stick keeps the product exactly where I want it to be. It doesn’t drag on the skin either, so it applies quickly and effectively!
Personally, I’ve been on a long time search for a daily sunscreen that didn’t leave a white cast on my skin. With the nature of my job requiring a good deal of filming and photography, I felt like anytime I was wearing sunscreen under my makeup I looked just a little grey. It probably wasn’t noticeable to anyone else, but I could see it and it bothered me. Many of you recommended Unseen Sunscreen to me and, after trying it consistently, I was pleased to find it a great clear sunscreen that acts as a primer to wear under makeup! This opportunity to partner with the brand and explore their kid’s products really came at a perfect time.
I had been using a post-makeup setting spray, like the Defense Refresh Setting Mist, but it’s always best to start out with sunscreen as a part of your daily skincare routine. Getting into the habit of applying sunscreen daily is important, and having the right products to do the job makes that so much easier.
