under the Florida sun

16 May 2016

I know I've mentioned it before but our very first beach trip here in Florida, we managed to get sunscreen on all the kids but which parent was going to put sunscreen on the kids faces was somehow lost in the shuffle and hurried translation and we had a couple of bright red faces on our hands. I still feel guilty about it and Julia's first official school picture will forever haunt and reawaken that guilt because her face was the color of a cherry tomato. While I'll always regret not being more careful and cognizant of the intense summer sun it was a really valuable reminder about the important of never ever forgetting to coat the kids in SPF, especially down here where the sun doesn't play games.


We were at the beach for about two hours one morning a couple of weekends ago, the sun was behind clouds almost the entire time, and I was camped out under an umbrella for a lot of the time and still! A little patch of my arm that I'd missed with sunscreen was very painfully burned. I think you get the point.


We are loyal devotees of their toothpaste and shampoo/body wash so I was excited and had high hopes and expectations when The Honest Company sent us their new sunscreen line to check out. and I was really happy to see that they made a stick that makes face application pretty painless - even for babies. Their spray is our favorite for reapplication after the kids have been in and out and in and out and in and out of the water. Being the fair skinned and fairly fair haired bunch that we are - I'm always sure to spray hat-hating kids' scalp as well. Phoebe's hair is so thin and almost transparent and I worry more about her head just as much as the rest of her exposed skin - if not more.


I didn't realize that not all sunscreens were the same in how they protect and zinc oxide is the only FDA-approved single active ingredient that provides broad spectrum protection against UVA1, UVA2, and UVB rays (I didn't know there were all these different kinds either - so much to learn, always). The Honest Company's mineral sunscreen is made with 19% zinc oxide and is both and safe and effective for the whole family.


I'm prone to breakouts and am always reluctant to try any new anything lest I pay for it in the weeks following but because the sunscreen is lightweight and non-greasy -- I'm not burned or broken out which I appreciate.


cue the happy jump a la Julia (she who skips/dances everywhere she goes these days)

Simon may have been a little overzealous on Theo's scalp protection but better safe than sorry ... 


... so goes our sun mantra.

Phoebe takes it to heart too ...

  9. I love Honest Company! We use their shampoo and body wash. I also love their children's vitamins (I should say Ted loves them). I am excited to try their new sunscreen line...that was one thing I did not like as much, so I hope this one is better! A sunscreen stick for the face is key...as I have a fair-skinned lad in AZ ;-) I am also always looking for a sunscreen spray that is not terrible for the environment and good for the skin!
