This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Banana Boat® SunComfort ™ and OFF!®. The opinions and text are all mine.
It’s officially my favorite time of year. I love spending time in the backyard hanging out with friends and family, laughing, sharing stories, and enjoying delicious food. Summer nights are made for lingering and slowing down a bit, don’t you agree?
Some of our summer get togethers are planned and others are spontaneous. We have friends and neighbors who walk by the house, hear the laughter and then head straight for the backyard where they know we will be found. Sometimes when our gatherings are unplanned, it’s easy to forget about applying sunscreen and insect repellent. I have learned to keep those products outside and to keep reminding everyone to apply them and reapply as needed.
Summer days in the sun can lead to painful sunburns. Living in Southern California with my fair skin can be challenging. I apply sunscreen in the morning and then leave it nearby when I am outdoors so I can reapply it often. If you keep the products outside, your guests will be reminded to use them too.
Do Summer Outside With Sun Protection From Banana Boat® SunComfort ™
With the Banana Boat® SunComfort ™ Family Care line with SPF 50, we are protected for up to 80 minutes with this sunscreen’s water resistant formula. It provides safe and effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection
It also moisturizes to relieve dryness which is an unexpected bonus and if you use it at the beach you can easily brush off sand when it is on your skin.
Do Summer Outside With OFF!® Insect Repellent
We love to barbecue all summer long. My husband and my daughter are mosquito magnets. We have learned the hard way never to be without OFF!® insect repellent. I like the OFF! Active® product because it is sweat resistant but you can also choose the OFF! Deep Woods® Insect Repellent VIII (Dry) and the OFF!® FamilyCare Insect Repellent II (Clean Feel).
