Sun, Surf, Summer & Sunscreen


Is that summer knocking at our door? Finally SUMMER is almost here!  Whole Foods knows we all need to stock up on all our skin care needs before the heat waves hit us!  This weekend our local Whole Foods Markets will be having a HUGE sale on products you need.

In the past he has hated putting on any type of sunscreen, but he doesn’t mind Burn Out at all.  The reason it works well for our family is because even after a full day at the beach I know my little boy will be completely covered.  My husband uses Think Sport SPF 50+ Sunscreen and the number one reason he uses it is because it stays on even during long surf sessions.  I worry about him having bad effects from the sun that could harm him, which is why I always remind him to use Think Sport when he goes surfing.


As a woman over 30 (just barely) I take my skin care very seriously.  My grandmother was a model her entire life and she always told me use moisturizer, sunscreen, then use moisturizer again.  Those are words I live by!  Did you know the American Academy of Dermatology recommends that everyone, yes EVERYONE wear broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protective factor of at least 30.  Which is why I use a 30 SPF everyday on my face, as well as my body when in the sun.  My favorite sunscreens are any product by Alba Botanica, there is everything from sunscreen to their Very Emollient after-sun care to self-tanners.  Why I love Alba Botanica products are because they are water-resistant, paraben free and fragrance free.  It is also lightweight and made with sunflower seed oils and aloe vera which soften and moisturize your skin while protecting from the sun.
