Protect Your Skin from the Sun

{Sponsored content and giveaway}

Summer is just around the corner and I know many will be hitting the pool, beach, camping, and doing a lot of fun outdoor activities. In fact, we just took our first beach trip for the summer over Memorial Day weekend! Because there will be a lot of sun exposure in the coming weeks, I now that protecting our skin and helping prevent skin cancer is something that is on many people’s minds.

Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers, according to information I received from Eucerin US – did you know this??? I had no clue that more than two million people are diagnosed annually with skin cancer! May is actually National Skin Cancer Awareness Month and though the month is coming to an end, taking care of your skin and being aware of skin cancer is something we should do year-round.

Being of a darker complexion, I don’t typically sunburn, but I do soak up the sun real easily and my skin tone changes dramatically in the summer after a couple of beach trips. Knowing this, I always, always, always apply sunscreen when I know I’ll be in the sun for a long time. It’s not as much about avoiding a sunburn as it is about protecting my skin since I can visibly see the toll the sun takes on it when I do get some sun.

There are other things we can do to help protect our skin, as you can see in this infographic from Eucerin:

I am a “very white” girl (so my kids tell me!). I use a lotion with sunscreen and more sunscreen. If I skip it, I don’t so much tan as burn and burn again!
