It’s midway through August and if you are like many people in Florida, you may be having company. Visitors from the midwest and the New England states seem to like to come just before their kids have to go back to school so the two weeks just before Labor Day are often filled with visitors. If you live North of the Mason Dixon Line, you may be one of them.
For many visitors to Florida, the two biggest draws are:
- The Beach
In both cases, but especially with the beach, you’re going to spend a lot of time in the sun. That’s not the healthiest thing for your skin but it sure is fun! What do you need to really have fun in the sun AND take care of yourself?
First, invest in a good-paraben free broad spectrum sunscreen. Choose one that will be kind to your body. Avoid products that contain a lot of chemicals you can’t pronounce. The simpler and purer the ingredient, the safer the product is. Beach Organics sunscreen contains no parabens but it does contain soothing jojoba oil, shea butter, coconut oil and zinc oxide and titanium oxide to block the harmful rays of the sun. It comes in SPF 15 and SPF 30 and you can read more about it here.
What else do you need? After Sun Lotion. Even with a good sunblock your skin is exposed at the beach and is washed by salt water, experiences evaporation, and the drying effects of wind and sand. Pamper that skin after you get home with After Sun Lotion with Aloe featuring beeswax, cocoa butter, mango butter, aloe and botanical oils. You will hear your skin say, “Ahhhhh!”
And don’t forget to take along our Beachgoer Sand Away™. Just a handful sprinkled on your legs or feet makes sand release and let go so your shoes don’t chafe and your car doesn’t get filled with sand!
