What you put on your skin is just as important as what you put in your mouth.

If you’re on a health and fitness journey it’s easy to focus on the food you’re fueling your body with and the exercise you’re doing. But what often get’s overlooked is taking care of the very skin you’re in.

Summer is here which means more pool time, beach vacations and outdoor exercise and playtime with the kids. Yay!

Most of us know how bad UV rays are for us so we’ve gotten used to taking & applying sunscreen anytime we’re outside…but are we using the best kind for our skin?

Here’s what you need to look for:

  1. Mineral-based formula (not chemical - read below for why this is so important)
  2. Must contain zinc oxide
  3. Must protect against UVA & UVB rays which age skin cells’ DNA and increase cancer risk
  4. SPF 30+
  5. BONUS: Water and sweat resistance for a period of time
  6. BONUS 2: No parabens or fragrances

The reason you want to have a mineral-based formula is because chemical formulas soak into your skin and absorb the sun’s rays AFTER they have already entered your body. Mineral sunscreens act like billions of little mirrors on top of your skin to REFLECT the sun’s rays BEFORE they enter your body. It’s pretty easy to see here that mineral is the way to go!

Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen is our go-to family sunscreen! We use the active formula, but there’s also sensitive, baby, kids, face and sport formulas. It has all of the 6 reasons above and is dermatologist recommended for over 20 years. One of the coolest features of Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen is their bottle. It actually turns from white to blue in UV Light! Check out this video:
