Sun Safety with Neutrogena - Suncreen That is Right For You

Summer is almost here and it's so important to be protected from the sun and wear sunscreen. Living in sunny LA, wearing sunscreen is almost all year round so I already know how important it is. But it really is one of the most crucial parts of being ready for the summer heat. I'm going to show you 5 sunscreens from Neutrogena that will help you find which one is right for you and your family. See more below!


Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 100+
Neutrogena® Ultra Sheer® Body Mist Sunscreen provides broad-spectrum UV protection in an ultra light sheer mist. Stabilized with Helioplex® Technology, it provides superior balanced broad-spectrum protection against UVA-aging and UVB-burning rays in an ultra-light, non-greasy finish. This weightless formula applies easily to even hard-to-reach areas. This one-touch continuous spray works at any angle. 
This sunscreen is lightweight, easy to apply, and not greasy at all. I used this the other day when I went to the park with my daughter and it stayed on all day and I never burned. It won't clog your pores and is water resistant for 80 minutes. I tend to use spray sunscreen more just because they are faster and easier to apply throughout the day. (Retails for $11.49)

Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 60+
Sensitive Skin Sunscreen Lotion SPF 60+ provides superior physical broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It goes on evenly, rubs in on skin, and feels ultra light. Plus, it's formulated with PureScreen™ technology for a unique blend of naturally-sourced physical sunscreens (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide) to give you protection that's hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, oil-free and water-resistant—great for sensitive skin!
 I use this one everyday since I have really sensitive skin. I need to use products that are fragrance free and hypoallergenic so this one is perfect. It is a little greasy when your putting it on, but that feeling goes away after a couple of minutes. I even use this on my face under my makeup for protection and it doesn't make my makeup look any different. It makes my skin feel not as dry when I use this first. (Retails for $10.49)

Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 70
Neutrogena® Beach Defense™ Sunscreen Lotion provides superior skin protection from harsh summer elements, clinically proven to help defend the signs of sun damage. Beach Defense™ Sunscreen Lotion provides beach strength broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection in a lightweight, fast absorbing formula, ideal for outdoor skin protection of the active family. 
 If you find yourself at the beach all summer (which you should), this is the sunscreen you want. It's going to give you the best protection from the sun and is still waterproof. I'm planning on going to the beach next week and this will be my most needed product to take. (Retails for $10.49)

Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 55
Neutrogena® Clear Face Sunscreen is specially designed to provide superior sun protection without causing breakouts on acne-prone skin. Formulated with Helioplex® Technology, it provides superior broadspectrum UVA/UVB protection. Perfect for face and body, this liquid-lotion has a water-light texture that leaves a weightless, matte finish so skin can breathe.
If you have acne-prone skin and are worried about putting sunscreen on your face because it might break you out, you want this sunscreen lotion. You will get the protection you need from the sun and this will let your skin breathe while wearing it.  (Retails for $10.49)

Neutrogena Wet Skin Lotion Suncreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45+
Wet Skin Kids Sunscreen Lotion SPF 45+ provides full strength protection even on wet skin. Specially developed with a technology that is designed to cut through water to apply directly to wet skin with minimal whitening or dripping off. Once applied to wet or dry skin, it forms a breathable protective barrier that visibly repels water. 
Can't forget the kids and make sure they are really protected from the sun's strong rays. This is great because you can still apply this wet and it will be just as if you put it on dry. I used this on my daughter when she went swimming and it worked! It wasn't greasy or it didn't turn white when I put it on my daughter's skin. (Retails for $10.49)

Also, I have some myths and facts to share about sun protection:
MYTH: The sun doesn’t change.
“The brightness of the sun has increased, while the ozone layer has been depleted. Climate change has led to warmer temperatures, which means Spring comes earlier and Fall lasts longer, and people are outside more.  Due to the combination of these environmental and lifestyle changes, current risk of UV is higher than it’s been ever before.” – Dr. Drew Shindell, Scientist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

MYTH: 50 minutes a day is essential for vitamin D.
“Incidental sun exposure is plenty for most people. If you think you are vitamin D deficient, get a blood test. There are fat-soluble vitamins available, which you do not need to take every day. Thus, vitamin D is not an excuse to get a tan and certainly not an excuse to go to a tanning bed.” – Dr. Doris Day, NYC-based Dermatologist

MYTH: You need a base tan before vacation.
“Does anybody still believe this? There’s no such thing as a base tan, it’s just one more excuse to have a tan. If you don’t want to get sunburn on vacation, use your sun protection and be sun smart.” – Dr. Doris Day

MYTH: You have most of your sun by the age of 18, and it doesn’t matter what you do after.
“No matter your age or how much exposure you’ve had, every exposure you get at any age is cumulative and damaging to the skin. Your skin has the ability to repair no matter how old you are. If you start today just by using sunscreen alone, all of those other expensive products that we are spending so much money on will work so much better. It is never too late to start protecting your skin.” – Dr. Doris Day
