Splash Into A Safe Summer Giveaway {$100 Visa Gift Card & Eucerin Prize Pack}

Can you believe that it’s already the end of June!? I hope you all are enjoying your summer so far. I hope you are also taking care of your skin while you are outside. Eucerin has shared some great tips for keeping your skin protected that I wanted to pass on to you all:

· Apply sunscreen 15 minutes before you head outside. Don’t forget places like the tops of your ears, nose, eyelids, lips, back, hands, feet, shoulders and backs of thighs. Be sure to reapply your sunscreen or a lotion with SPF every 2 hour or more frequently, and if you’re swimming at the pool or beach make sure to use a water resistant, broad spectrum sunscreen.
· Wear sun protective clothing – Did you know fabrics have an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) rating that measures their level of UV protection? These fabrics provide more protection than other clothing due to the tighter woven fabric. Look for clothing with a UPF rating of 30 or higher.
· Wear sunglasses to help protect eyes and sensitive skin around them from ultraviolet light
· Wear a hat – A wide-brimmed hat can shield your skin from the sun’s harsh rays. 
· Use Daily lightweight moisturizers that have SPF to protect skin even on cloudy days –  Eucerin Daily Protection Lotions are lightweight SPF moisturizers that provide head-to-toe sun protection. SPF 15 Body Lotion helps protect against daily UV exposure while SPF 30 Face Lotion moisturizes and protects with UVA/UVB sunscreens.
· Stay inside or seek shade when the sun’s rays are the strongest – between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.  A beach umbrella or portable shelter can help protect your skin from the heat and sun’s rays.

Hope those tips will help you keep your skin safe this summer! Don’t forget that you can get a couple samples of Eucerin Daily Protection body lotion by taking the Skin First pledge on their Facebook page.
