Banana Boat® Makes Sunscreen For All of Your Summer Activities

Summer is all about fun activities — the last thing you want to worry about is UVA and UVB protection.

Even if it’s an overcast day — the rays of the sun can still be very intense and damaging, especially near water (pool, lake, or beach).

Now that Landon is almost 9, I want him to understand that and start to remember that he needs to wear sunscreen, even if I’m not with him to remind him or to apply it. He can start taking responsibility for his health a bit at his age.

Banana Boat suncreen makes sunscreen for all activities, DagmarBleasdale.comAnother thing I point out to Landon: if he doesn’t want his many scrapes and little cuts he gets from falling off his scooter to turn dark, he needs to cover them with sunscreen while they heal.

095aI like Banana Boat®’s Baby Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50, Banana Boat®’s Natural Reflect Kids Sunscreen Lotion™ SPF 50 and Banana Boat®’s Protect & Hydrate Sunscreen Lotion™ SPF 15 and 30 best because they get good ratings from the Environmental Working Group.

Another very important point kids need to understand: optimal sun protection requires 1 oz. every 2 hours to ensure family fun.

My tip: make sure you buy plenty of sunscreen so that there’s always a tube or two close by. I have about six tubes in the house and in our cars right now. One tube stays with Landon’s swimming gear, and I keep one with other items like bug spray in an enamel caddy on the porch.

No matter which outdoor activity you are enjoying — going to the beach, having a picnic, or a road trip — Banana Boat® has you covered.

They’ve thought of everything and make sunscreens for all of these 7 conditions

  • sun
  • pool water
  • ocean water
  • wind
  • sweat
  • sand
  • extreme heat

to provide safe and effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection for the entire family.

Family gatherings can be hosted in many different conditions – Banana Boat® also offers products with multi-skin benefits, like water-resistance, ease of application, and comfort.

I think it is great that you are teaching him at a young age. So many people have gotten skin cancer from too much sun exposure.

Thanks, Linda! Skin cancer is something you can help to not get, and many people don’t use good sunscreen or put on enough. Can’t be mentioned enough that just one extra coat could have prevented a bad sunburn. We’ve all been there :)
