Get Natural Waterproof Sun Protection With AquaSport Sunscreen
Posted by Kate on Tuesday, September 25th, 2012
Much to the surprise and dismay of my husband and myself, we have an outdoorsy baby. More specifically, we have a baby who loves the water. My husband is a fair-skinned redhead whose complexion demands that he avoid the sun. I don’t mind being outside, but I have a crippling fear of sharks that keeps me firmly on dry land. I don’t even like to visit aquariums that feature sharks just in case they escape. Hey, I never claimed to be rational.
But my daughter loves the water. She can splash in the pool all afternoon without getting bored. She’s ridden in my lap down kid-friendly water slides and demanded to go again before we even reached the bottom. She’d hang out in the bathtub for hours if we let her. It’s only a matter of time before she’s old enough to hear about the beach, and then I will have no choice but to end my lifelong boycott of oceans so that I can accompany her into the water. I mean, I guess I could have my husband do it, but he’s so pale he might burst into flames, and then who would protect her from the sharks?
In the meantime though, there are plenty of other things to protect her from, including the sun. Sunshine is a great source of vitamin D, but it is also a source of dangerous, cancer-causing UVB rays and skin-damaging UVA rays. So before we venture into the pool, I make sure to slather us both up with Aqua Sport SPF 30 Waterproof Sunscreen. It won’t wash away during her lengthy splashing sessions, and it is made of natural ingredients which are great for both the environment and her sensitive skin. Plus it offers the broadest spectrum of UVA and UVB protection available.
I order this sunscreen in from Runka in bulk, so we can enjoy the sun without damaging our skin or our health all year round. It has just about everything I look for in a sunscreen. If only it protected against shark bites, it truly would be the perfect product.
