Have you ever been in the store wondering which sunscreen to buy? You wondered what the devil does SPF mean? You’re not alone. This guide to sunscreen and SPF will teach you all about sun safety and make you better prepared.
Summer is almost over (sigh) but there is still a whole month left of beach opportunities. I have put together my absolute beach essentials list for you. Of course, you’ll have to remember your swimsuit on your own! Go grab your beach bag and make sure to include these awesome essentials.
Some studies show that you can actually eat your sunscreen.
No, I don’t mean grab the bottle of SPF 50 and spread it over your morning cereal. What I mean is that it appears that what you eat might have a big influence on how sensitive you are to the sun’s rays. It all boils down to something I’m sure you’ve heard about—free radicals—rogue molecules that travel through our bodies sucking energy out of our healthy cells and mutating our DNA. Our bodies naturally produce these little nasty dudes when we’re exposed to UVA and UVB rays from the sun. One way to block the formation of free radicals? A diet rich in antioxidants.
Have you ever gotten to the beach to realize you forgot the sunscreen? It's frustrating. And the last thing you want to do is forget anything on these warm summer days, especially when you have children! This list will make getting to the beach quicker than you can say, "Shamalamadingdong!"
