If there is one thing I don’t mess around with, it’s sun care…especially when we’re talking about protecting my babies’ precious skin. Not only are they very fair, just like their mama, but they have super sensitive skin too, so I have to be extremely careful what I put on them. Sunscreen is so vital these days but I can’t just put any old sunscreen on my kids. I take all the measures I possibly can to protect them from the sun’s wicked rays both by using products that don’t irritate them, like the new fragrance free, hypoallergenic sun care line from Babo Botanicals, and making use of other tips and tricks that I’ve learned along the way.
1. Sunscreen…Being that we live in Florida, we’re in the sun…a lot. Whether my kids are on the playground at school, playing a Little League game or spending a family day at the beach, it’s sunny year ’round here, so sunscreen is a non negotiable. That being said, we’ve tried dozens of them over the years because they so often irritate their skin. That’s why I was thrilled when one of our favorite organic skin care brands, Babo Botanicals, came out with sun care products. I can liberally apply their products throughout the day without worrying about ending up with crying kiddos. Plus, the hubs and I can use them too! In the line you’ll find their Sheer Zinc Continuous Spray Sunscreen SPF 30, Super Shield Sport Stick Sunscreen SPF 50, Nutri-Soothe™ SPF 15 Lip Treatment and Fragrance Free 30 SPF Clear Zinc Sunscreen which got a 1 (the best) safety score from the EWG!
2. Hats…They’re a must anytime we go out in the sun. Sunscreen is the first line of defense, obviously, but why not up the sun protection even more by shielding their complexion with some head gear? Tip: I keep extra hats in the car, so we’re never caught off guard!
3. Rash guards…Now I know those teeny swimsuits are adorable on little ladies, but they don’t cover much and when you’re trying to steer clear of sun damage, you want to cover up as much as possible. As you can see from our little model’s swimwear look, rash guards come in awfully cute prints these days.
So, as you plan your family’s spring break and summer vacations this year or even just get ready for your every day sun protection, I urge you to give Babo Botanicals a try! You want to right? Well, you’re in luck…
