Sun Protection on Family Vacation

Summertime is a great time to get together with your family while the weather is nice and the kids are out of school, and my family is taking full advantage!

Every other year, we get together with my husband’s whole family for a week long vacation together. We change locations each time and we get to have a blast visiting destinations we’ve never been to before with the people we love.

My mother in law is the vacation planner extraordinaire and we are blessed with so many amazing activities each location has to offer. The last time we all got together, it was on the Oregon Coast. We spent time teaching our kids about tide pools, visiting light houses and going to the aquarium. This week happens to be that week, and we are spending our days out in the sun lake side in Idaho.  We are playing on the beach, going out on the boat and enjoying the lake life.

Summer Vacation on the Lake

Because our days are spent primarily outdoors, we packed a massive amount of sunblock for the week. With 11 kids in tow (soak that in for a second…ELEVEN!), we have to stay on top of re-applying and making sure to keep them all covered from the sun. We plan ahead each day and remember to pack all of our sun protection for everyone because the sun doesn’t just give you sun burns, and Banana Boat® understands this. Their products don’t just protect from getting a sun burn, they also protect from long term affects of being in the sun too!

Beach Bag Essentials

When you are planning on being outside with your family, make sure to remember that it’s important to reapply 1 ounce of sunblock every 2 hours. If you’re sweating a lot or take a dip in the water you should reapply after as well.

Protect yourself and your family with only the best. Banana Boat® products are tested against 7 conditions – sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and extreme heat – to make sure that you and your family are covered with UVA and UVB protection. No matter what you’re doing with your family this summer or where your travels may take you, Banana Boat® has you covered.
