6am Sunscreen Won't Last All Day

Trust me!  No one loves being in the sun more than me!  I dream of summer all year long. I don’t care what it is….walking the dog in the park, walking in the city or laying by any pool, I just want to be outside enjoying the sun and warm weather.  My favorite day is June 21st! It’s the day with the most sunlight! Ahhhhh!!!!!

You should know that when I go to the pool I’m obsessive with sunscreen!  I use a physical sunscreen on my face and re-apply it every 45-60 minutes.  I also nag my friends to re-apply it too! I make sure they focus on their nose and ears.  

Ever see someone with a piece of their ear clipped off?  It happens! Do you want a plastic surgeon to have to cut the tip of your nose off to get rid of skin cancer?  Do you?
— Barry rants to his pool mates.

I’m so uplifting to be with at the pool.  It’s no wonder I go alone a lot!

We pretty much all do it! If we’re headed to the pool or the beach - we stop at CVS or Walgreens or Rite Aid or Duane Reade or Target or Walmart --- well you get the point, we plan to wear sunscreen when we’re going to be really obvious about sun exposure.  

BUT…..

What about Tuesday July 10th?

OR……

Friday August 3rd?  

What about those random days of the week, when the sun is out for long hours and your skin is exposed?  Are you as conscious about protecting yourself then? Do you think, I’m going to be exposed to the sun on my way to work, at lunch, on my way home from work, and then after work when doing whatever type of activities you do after work?  

Are you relying on that SPF 30 you applied at 6am when you got ready for work to protect your skin at 6:30pm when you’re … say, running to Target to pick up toilet paper and paper towels?  (I’m assuming you’re life is as glamorous as mine).

Well...ARE YOU?????

See it works here too!
