We’re drawing three names on Friday, August 23rd and, if you’re a winner, you can pick the product you want and we’ll ship it to you free. Do you love your sunscreen? Does it match your skin type so well that you’re eager to apply it every day first thing in the morning just because you know it’s good for you? If not, you need to start searching for a new sunscreen! You should love your sunscreen; it should feel good on your skin, fit your activities, and be convenient to carry and apply. I'm certain that you’ll happily use sunscreen when you find the right products. Realize that there's no "one-size-fits-all" sunscreen. Here's what you need to consider when it comes to picking sunscreens: First, in my opinion, to fully protect you  a sunscreen needs to have 5% or more zinc oxide for broad spectrum and trusted protection. Second, to find your perfect sunscreen(s), think about your unique skin type and lifestyle.

  • You need a daily wear facial product. It:
    • needs to work with your makeup if your wear it
    • shouldn't feel greasy or make your skin oily
    • needs to feel good on your skin
  • You need a product for the back of your hands that is water resistant.
  • You need a product for neck, ears, and the V of your chest.
  • You also need a product for wet and sweaty outdoor activities.

Don’t forget to:

  • wear your hat
  • use shade
  • wear sun-protective clothing
  • use UV-blocking glasses
