This post was sponsored by Neutrogena as part of an influencer activation for The Motherhood. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review, that said, I don’t use a product if I don’t like it. Opinions are 100% my own.
Growing up I honestly didn’t pay any attention to my skin or sunscreen. In fact, I used to think that I was naturally “dark”, I spent a lot of time in the pool and running around the neighborhood.
Over the years I have started noticing the wear and tear on my skin due to that sun exposure. I never really thought about applying sunscreen on a daily basis. But did you know that there has been a tremendous increase in skin cancer over the years? Melanoma rates in my state are on the rise and have increased 15% in the past 10 years!
I try and get out on a walk with Oliver and the kids to the park regularly and protecting their skin is a priority for me! I love that Neutrogena has baby and kids products that are quick and easy to use!
Despite all we know about sun protection, skin cancer continues to be a health epidemic in the U.S. – on average, more than 350 Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer every hour – even though skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. That is a LOT!
I want to make sure my kiddos know early on that putting on sunscreen daily is just part of their routine, just like brushing their teeth. I definitely believe that kids will do what they see in the home. From healthy eating to word choice, this imitation game children subconsciously play is a constant reminder that parents must lead by example.
Studies show that kids are more likely to adopt healthy habits, like applying sunscreen, if they see their moms applying it on themselves. Sparking this simple, healthy behavior change early on may help reduce the likelihood of developing skin cancer later in life.
I am committed to instilling safe sun behaviors in the next generation of children, so I always make sure my kids see me applying sunscreen on myself first to set the right example.
