“I am a Coppertone Water Mom” #CoppertoneWaterMoms

With both parents having fair-complexions,  it is no surprise that our children were blessed to be fair as well.  As a kid, I remember putting on sunblock once before going swimming and then getting burnt. Once I became a mother, I read every book and magazine to learn about being a good mom. Sun care has always been an important issue to me. I won’t lie I used to work at a tanning place (mostly coffee/smoothie/herbal store) and with free tanning I felt I could use some color. It was so tricky with all the mixed information about whether tanning beds or natural sunlight were better.  However, when people that I know in their 20s like me were being diagnosed with skin cancer from tanning beds, it is enough to make me think. Even though I did it sporadically, I didn’t want to take that risk. I stopped tanning and switched to sunless tanner if I needed a glow.  With my first born mommy-mode set in, I always put sunblock (usually 50+) on my kids. The Boys don’t always love to sit still for it, but I have established this routine since they were little. No sunblock = No outside time

I have been selected as one of the Coppertone Water Moms! I am looking forward to sharing tips for staying safe in the sun, reviews on beloved Coppertone Sun Care Products, and more!

  2. It sounds like you are a great fit to be a Coppertone Mom! My two boys are fairly fair skinned- the oldest one more so than the younger one. It has always been a struggle to get sunscreen on them. Now that my oldest is almost 16 it is even more difficult! Thankfully my daughter has a darker complexion and has never burned, even when she goes without sunscreen– lucky girl!

    I found your blog through the blogger comment club- thanks for letting me visit.

  3. I am not fair skinned, but I do burn easily. I slather on sunscreen, at least 50+, on the boys and myself.
    Do you put sunscreen on them everyday or simply during the summer when the sun is harshest?

  4. I worked in dermatology for 7 years so sunscreen is my one platform I am adamant about! I always go out the door with a broadspectrum sunscreen and never rely on the sunscreen in makeup, lotions, etc. I’ve seen too many people with basal and squamous cell cancers.

  5. How terrific to be a Coppertone Water Mom! I do think we have to make sure from an early age that our children understand how important it is to use sunscreen. I am lucky that my kids will put it on now without me telling them anymore. They understand about skin cancer and also premature wrinkles! They do not want that at all!
