Sunscreen. All Summer Long!
Summer’s here and if there’s one thing you should know, it’s this: put the sunscreen on at home. Before heading to the pool or the park, slather those kiddos in sunscreen in the house. It gives the skin time to absorb the lotion and lets the kids get right to the fun when they get to their destination. Don’t be that mom arguing with your kids on the side of the pool. You’ll lose and they’ll get sunburned.
Sunscreen and Pregnancy
Sunscreen is important for everyone, but if you’re pregnant, sunscreen is a must. Right now your skin is even more sensitive to sunlight as those pigment-producing cells called melanocytes are in overdrive. So, if you don’t want an uncomfortable sunburn or any new freckles, slather on an SPF of 30 or higher and wear a hat and sunglasses. All day. Every day. All summer long.
