Top 3 Sun Care Basics
I finally had a chance to hit the beach this weekend. I hadn’t been in a while so the getaway was a welcome retreat.
The high was 98 degrees and the water was easily 80. Although I enjoyed the warm sun on my body, I made sure to take the necessary precautions to protect my skin and hair.
Here are my top three sun care basics to get you through the rest of summer…
- Lotion Up
Contrary to popular belief, black does crack…and burn. Be sure to choose a sunblock with both uva and uvb protection and apply it at least 20 minutes prior to sun exposure. I use Coppertone Kids Spectra 3 Spectra 3 Sunblock Lotion with SPF 50.
- Cover Up
The sun can be surprisingly damaging in a short amount of time. Don’t forget that the sun’s rays also reflect off of sand and water. Bring/rent a beach umbrella to provide a cool reprieve.
