Sun Blocks, Protectors

Please don't forget you sun block! Don't want you out there getting done over easy in the sun. One summer my daughter (after she was grown) was only in the sun momentarily not even 10 minutes and the poor little thing started peeling on her arms and her back. I looked at her in horror and told her to get out of the sun. When she realized what had happened she swore off the sun! To this day you cannot get her to go outside for anything! I think she's suffering from a little PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). I keep telling her all she needs to do is put on the right sun protection. She's not trying to hear me though! If it's an activity that has to do with the sun she always takes a rain check! (Literally) We all need protection from the sun though, and here's our top 3.

Now, if I could just get this child back out in the sun! That is a serious battle of epic proportions around here! By the way, all of the above mentioned products are available at Sephora.
