I cared for my skin from the inside out with Aveeno® Active Naturals as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. As always, all thoughts, opinions and cute little kids are mine! #Aveeno
My kids love the beach. They love the pool. They thrive when they’re outside exploring. When we’re not in France we live in southern California. Where it is hot during the summers. Who am I kidding, it never really cools down! It is so important to take care of our babies skin. We spend so much time making sure they’re safe, that they’re eating healthy and staying active, we need to also protect their skin from the sun!
Now, I have a confession. I am not so great at putting sunscreen on my kids. They have really dark skin that never burns, it just gets darker and darker. It’s just that I don’t like that so many sunscreens have unnecessary chemicals in them and I don’t know which is worse, sun damage or the chemicals?
Enter Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection® sunscreen. First of all, it’s SPF is 55. I want to make sure that they are getting covered to the max! Kids don’t need a nice tan. It’s water resistant for 80 minutes which is fabulous because I don’t know about your kids, but my boys love, love, love to hang out in the water. During the hot summer months they could be out there all day. I already use Aveeno® Baby Wash for my kids to care for their mixed skin and the sunscreen has the same Active Naturals® Colloidal Oatmeal in it. So we’re moisturizing, which on hot summer days is a must, and protecting our babies from the sun, sounds like a double win to me!
One of the best things I have started doing with my within the past couple years is after a long day at the beach or in the pool and they’re all washed up, we lather up in the lotion. The hot sun and summer activities can take all the moisture out of their skin. Part of caring for biracial skin is making sure they are always moisturized and don’t look ashy!
So we settle down after bath, and I rub Aveeno® Sheer Hydration Daily Moisturizer all over their bodies while they tell me all kinds of stories about what they did that day, what powers certain super heroes have and what they’re excited about. I love it because I’m taking care of their little bodies and I love hearing them stammer on. It’s become our thing. 🙂 This lotion is perfect because hydrates for 24 hours and really leaves your skin feeling renewed and refreshed. It also is absorbed so quickly! And when you’re wrestling little monsters into their jammies, you don’t want to have to try to get sticky bodies into pajama pants.
In fact, to show you how awesome this lotion is and how quickly it is absorbed, I had my little man help me out a bit. I hope you truly appreciate his outfit as well, it’s all him. Pajama pants, basketball jersey, sweater and his hat cocked to the side. Man this little kid’s got swag! Or no fashion sense at all, you decide.
I just have to tell you how this all went down. He wanted me to take the pictures of him, so I obliged. I’m always down to have pictures of my little men. As I’m snapping away he is explaining to me how you put on the lotion, turning the bottle correcting and then rubbing it all in. You could definitely tell this is a regimen in our home! Then I explained the tissue you test to him. Basically you put on the lotion, rub it in for about 15 seconds, then apply a tissue where you applied the lotion and there will be no residue. It’s hard to tell because the tissue is so white, but there wasn’t at all! This is the perfect lotion to hydrate quickly, not be sticky and have it last all day!
You’ve got to check out this lotion for yourself, it’s really the perfect lotion for everyone in the family!
