Let’s talk summer. I’ve already shared my summer goals list, how to make sure you have the best summer with your dog, and today I’m teaming up with Hawaiian Tropic® and the new Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen Pump to talk about making sure you’re stocked up to have perfect summer days.
We have a pool in our backyard, so Saturdays and Sundays at our house in the warmer months usually involve a lot of people in the backyard, hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill, and cozy bonfires once the sun goes down. I cherish those summer mornings when I can sit in the backyard, reading a book and enjoying the quiet before the day really gets going.
At the beginning of every pool season, I make sure to stock up on items that I know we’ll go through during the summer. That includes filling the pantry with enough ketchup and mustard for #alloftheburgers, bug spray and s’mores stuff for the late nights that end around a bonfire, and sunscreen in case anyone forgets theirs. (You’d be amazed at how much sunscreen we go through!) Since there are kids of all ages (including 35 year old men) around the pool all summer, I only buy sunscreen that has at least SPF 15, and it needs to also provide UVA and UVB protection. (PSA: you should also be reapplying at least every two hours.) I don’t want anyone leaving my house with skin the color of a boiled lobster!
Right now you can find a special section for sun care at Target, and they’re currently running a promotion where you get a $5 gift card when you spend $20.
P.S. You can take a quiz here to find out how much you actually know about skincare – did you know that most people only apply 1/4 to 1/2 of the recommended amount of sunscreen?
