I'm thrilled to have been chosen to be a Coppertone Water Mom. As a Coppertone Water Mom, I’ll be sharing some fantastic tips, recipes, activities and how to keep our children safe outdoors with Coppertone products.
I have olive skin that tans very easily. Its May and I'm already pretty tanned just from sitting outside watching my kids at their soccer and baseball practices/games. My friends think I've been away on vacation but I've yet to hit the beach this year. While I tan easily it doesn't mean I give up on suncreen. I actually have to make the effort to put sunscreen on as I hate looking so dark and I also want to protect myself from the harmful UV rays. My summer handbag always contain sunscreen for the family and Coppertone features heavily in my sunscreen choice. Their product line offers something for everyone and I love how they are very focused on the kids as their skin is certainly the most vulnerable.
Memorial day is near which signals summer break will be here in no time!
Here is a Sun Protection Checklist for you:
