It's gonna be a Coppertone Summer!

When I was younger I didn't use sunscreen very often. As a matter of fact I would venture to say that I didn't think it was something that I needed. I put it on my daughter religiously, but I didn't do the same for myself. Now that I'm getting "wiser" (not older), I realize how important it is to protect my skin.

Last Saturday it was my great honor to participate in the Revlon Run/Walk for Women.  I was good about making sure that my family generously applied Coppertone Sunscreen before we left the house and I even applied some myself! The day started off quite overcast, but I know that even when the sun is hiding behind the clouds its rays are still working their magic.

The walk presented a wonderful opportunity for me to pass out samples of Coppertone Water Babies Sunscreen to as many Mommies as I could!

By the time I made it to the finish line the sun was shining brightly and I was feeling quite proud of myself, until I realized that I had forgotten to apply sunscreen to my chest... ouch!  It was tender to the touch and it itched like crazy too!

Sunburn is not cute and it doesn't feel good either :-(  Lesson learned! 
You don't have to learn the hard way like I did.  Here are some tips from a great source (Coppertone Guide to Better Suncare):
  • Apply sunscreen before you go out into the sun.
  • Be generous. Apply it to any part of your body that is exposed and reapply as needed.
  • Pay attention to the numbers.  Coppertone recommends SPF 15 or higher.
  • Do it again! Reapply if you've been perspiring, swimming, and towelling off.
  • Use SPF 30 or higher for your water-lovin' kids! Kids love to playing in water so make sure they're well protected.
I don't know about you but I'm going to make it a Coppertone Summer!

Be sure to give Coppertone the "thumbs up" on Facebook!

As a member of the Coppertone Water MOMS group, I received product samples and promotional items to share and use as I see fit. No monetary compensation was received. All views expressed are the opinion of Just Say I Told You So.
