Play Safely in The Sun this Summer


Did you know that kids spend more than seven hours per day plugged into media ­watching TV, texting, video gaming and only seven minutes per day outside playing? With summer in full swing we are pledging to spend more time outdoors by taking the 101 Days of Summer Play pledge from Banana Boat.

For everyone that takes the pledge, Banana Boat will donate one bottle of Banana Boat® Natural Reflect Sunscreen to The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a non-profit founded by Paul Newman that offers a residential summer camp for children coping with cancer and other serious illnesses. And to help parents come up with ways to enjoy the outdoors, Banana Boat and Sara Snow created the 101 Days of Summer Play Activity Guide on facebook featuring family-friendly tips and ideas for outdoor fun each day of the season so families enjoy the sunshine.

With so many fun activities keeping families outside this summer, it is important to stay safe in the sun.

This year, the iconic sun care brand is introducing Banana Boat® Sunscreen Natural Reflect Lotion and Banana Boat® Sport Performance® CoolZone Continuous Spray Sunscreen that will become staples in your summer bags:

Banana Boat® Sunscreen Natural Reflect Lotion: Available in SPF 50+, Kids 50+ and Baby 50+, this unique formula offers sun protection using naturally sourced sunscreen actives that reflect UVA and UVB rays. The new Banana Boat® Natural Reflect underwent extensive testing in seven conditions ­ sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and even 100° heat ­ to ensure sun protection. I will be using this when I am visiting my three nieces (ages 6, 1.5 and 3 months!) in Chicago and Canada!

Banana Boat® Sport Performance® CoolZone Continuous Spray Sunscreen: Available in SPF 30 and 50+, Banana Boat® Sport Performance® CoolZone Continuous Spray Sunscreen provides active UVA and UVB protection that instantly cools skin on contact, for a clean, refreshing feeling. To rejuvenate after a day in the sun, Banana Boat® Sport Performance® CoolZone After Sun Aloe Gel provides cooling burn relief to refresh skin. I will be cooling off with this when I'm hitting the golf course with Alex this summer in Door County.
