Okay, I know this sounds obvious but it’s important. It really is.
Use sunscreen. Everyday. Even in the winter.
I keep a pump bottle of it on top my bathroom counter and just apply every morning after a shower. I also keep a GoToob of it in my hand bag. Or you can keep a dedicated bottle in your car.
I prefer the waterproof version as I wash my hands a lot. I will apply it like a hand lotion throughout the day. This particular Banana Boat Sunscreen Sport brand has a little thicker consistency than an emollient hand cream and is actually pretty moisturizing.
I would prefer to purchase just one type of sunscreen but my finicky son can’t stand the white lotion-ey rub on type, especially if his mother is smearing it all over his face like cream cheese on a bagel. He’ll use spray on or face stick and only after much prodding. My daughter wanted her own spray Kiss My Face brand. I bought the Scalp SPF (which was very difficult to find) because I prefer to wear visors instead of hats and was worried about my scalp. It has the consistency of hair spray. I wouldn’t recommend it unless you’re in the sun A LOT like me, watching baseball games all summer. I probably won’t repurchase it.
Okay, I know it’s back to school and all that and this post would’ve been more apt about three months ago but thank you for reading again as I took a break this summer. And inquiring minds want to know, what type of sunscreen do you prefer?
