Family Park Play With Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ Sunscreen
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Banana Boat®. The opinions and text are all mine.
We are at the park at least once a week with the kids! We are very fortunate to live within walking distance to a mini park play area and the lake! I remember when we first moved here 5 years ago. All I could think was what a childhood dream to literally have a park and a lake in your back yard! It is never over crowded, we are lucky if other kids come join us and most importantly, it is so beyond peaceful which is everything to us! If no one is around we take Charlie with us and let him run free in the grass and take a dip in the lake! It is his favorite thing to do. This park has a great jungle gym and even a workout area that the kids LOVE! We could easily spend hours here! I mean, look at their faces! Do they look happy or what?!
The weather is starting to warm up a bit here in Northern California which makes our times at the park more enjoyable! At the same time, although the sun isn’t quite beating on us yet, we are being very conscious of sun health both for ourselves and for the kids. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, regardless of their skin tone, it is recommended that all kids wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. It is said that “the darker a person’s natural skin color, the more melanin it has. But both dark- and light-skinned kids need protection from UV rays because any tanning or burning causes skin damage.” Sun safety is not something we take lightly and we are all about skin protection!
We have been using Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ Sunscreen and the kids LOVE it! It provides safe and effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection which every child needs as mentioned above! I love that the formula in the Dry Balance is non-greasy and lightweight. It is the worst when I feel like sunscreen is caked on and we are all wearing a thick layer of scented lotion! Not the case here! Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ sunscreen is also water resistant for up to 80 minutes total! This is plenty of time for my littles! They are true water babies/fish but only last in the water a little over an hour before they turn into prunes! Today when we were at the park and I was applying everyone’s sunscreen, Judah said to me, “I can’t wait till it’s warm enough to go swimming!” I hear ya buddy!
Before we know it, summer will be here and we will be drenched in sweat from the triple digit heat and covered in sand!! Also, did I mention that Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ sunscreen stays on in seven conditions – sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and even 100 degree heat (7 conditions do not apply to tanning or oil products, SPF 100 lotions, lip balms, Kids FREE and Zinc Faces)?! When I saw that I thought, this was MADE for us here in CA! It even dries with a soft matte finish. So nice you’ll want to reapply! We stocked up on Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ Sunscreen which can be found at your local Walmart! We are ready for all the weather and just simply to be outside and sun protected!
What do you all like to do for fun as a family?! I would love to hear! Also, be sure to get your Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ Sunscreen at Walmart!
