Knock on wood but I have never had a sunburn. Unfortunately, I have seen what sunburn does and it is not a pretty sight. It takes forever for the body to heal and when you are older, it will never heal properly. There was a Caucasian co-worker who I use to work with who was sunburned severely and her skin is now always brownish with spots. The texture on her body looks leathery and it is not a pretty sight.
The UV peak hours are between 10am - 4pm, even on a cloudy day. Always apply generous amount on your body and re-apply every two hours. It is ideally look for SPF over 30. We go through sunscreen like water. I could easily use up a few bottles myself each summer. If not, then I am not applying enough and not often enough. I know I am doing it right when people underestimate your age.
I use sunscreen all year round but I use it the most during the summer when I have to apply it all over my body. If you are packing some sunscreen on your trip or even to the park, you should bring a few tubes of Live Clean suncreen.
Live Clean has a great collection of mineral sunscreen. What is mineral sunscreen? It means that this sunscreen contains zinc oxide and titanium oxide. Zinc Oxide is a great ingredient that is a powder that sits on your skin that protects you from UVA and UVB rays. That is why when you use any mineral sunscreen it goes on white at first but once you rub it onto your skin, the whiteness gets absorbs.
I could wear Live Clean face mineral sunscreen both on my face and my body. It is so lightweight that I don't feel like I am wearing any sunscreen. You are not the only one who needs sunscreen, any body over the age 6 months should be wearing them. Unfortunately, if your baby is under 6 months, you should keep them out from direct sunlight.
My favourite is the Live Clean Kids Mineral Sunscreen Spray SPF 30. My daughter and I love using this sunscreen. I call it the screaming sunscreen. It sounds like the bottle is screaming when I spray the sunscreen on our bodies. It is light weight and absorbs fast.
Just remember to moisturize after spending the day in the sun. The sun soaks up all the moisture from your skin. I recommend to use the Live Clean After Sun 98% Aloe Vera Gel. Aloe Vera is an important ingredient to help repair damaged skin especially if you noticed you skin looks a little toasty. It is a gel so it comes out clumpy but it feels like water once I rub it onto my skin. It absorbs very quickly and it leaves no residue that it feels like you didn't apply anything at all. You could also keep one tube in the fridge so the gel will feel amazing on your skin when the weather is boiling hot outside.
