I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Banana Boat®. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
The weather is heating up and that means it is time for some summer fun! In the summer we spend a lot of time outside. But being outside a lot means we need to take extra precaution with our skin. Sun Protection is more important than ever. Thankfully we have great products like Banana Boat Sun protection to help us keep our families safe as we spend quality time outside this summer!
Sun Protection Tips
For us, the best part about summer is being together and spending time outside! Every summer we always join my family for an extended family camping trip. And we also love to spend time outside by going to the parks, or just playing outside at home! This includes riding our bikes, going for walks, or just playing in the sprinklers or with water guns when it is hot.
But having sun protection is more than just not going outside. There are many things you can do to help ensure you have proper sun protection.
- Wear Sunglasses to protect your eyes and the skin around your eyes
- Wear hats
- Wear UV protecting clothing when applicable
- Avoid being in the sun between 10 am and 2 pm
- Apply 1 ounce Banana Boat SPF sunscreen at each application
- Apply Sunscreen 30 minutes before going outside
- Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours
Thankfully Banana Boat has our family covered when it comes to Sun protection. And they have a product for every need!
Like the new SunComfort™ Clear UltraMist® Sunscreen! It not only feels great, but has a new formula that allows sand to easily brush off! Plus it moisturizes to relieve dryness caused by sun, chlorine and salt water.
I love this one because I hate when you apply sunscreen and then dust, sand and dirt stick to you like glue. That doesn’t make outdoor activities very fun. So I love that it doesn’t leave you sticky and messy! This one is perfect for the kids too!
Banana Boat also has reformulated its Dry Oil Clear UltraMist® Sunscreen. It now contains Argan Oil! It is incredibly lightweight but also works to moisturize. But what I love is the non-greasy feel! Plus it is incredibly easy to apply! Just an easy mist 30 minutes before heading outside and I’m ready to go!
Now for the more active outdoors man; the Sport Performance®Lotion Sunscreen with Powerstay Technology™ is the way to go! This one is absolutely perfect for the husband or when we are being more active outdoors! It is lightweight, sweat resistant, water resistant (up to 80 minutes), quick absorbing, non-greasy and won’t run in eyes!
Banana Boat knows that as families we like to be outside together this summer. And they don’t want us to be slowed down. That’s why they are hosting the Banana Boat® Great Big Family Reunion!
