I cared for my skin from the inside out with Aveeno® Active Naturals as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. As always, these are my honest opinions and products we REALLY use. #Aveeno
Finding the best sunscreen for babies and kids is not a simple task. The reality is that there are so many different skin types and needs out there. What I can say is that we have been through a plethora of sunscreens for our boys and I have only found a handful that do not break their skin out.
I discovered Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection® Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum 55 after Graham had a severe reaction to another brand when he was little. I decided to spend the little bit of extra money on a brand I trusted and that had proven itself to be gentle over the years. Afterall, I was using the Aveeno® baby products for bath time, why not for sun protection?
After the very first use this was the only sunscreen I purchased for the boys when they were very small. I am pretty diligent about re-applying sunscreen and do so about every hour. The bottle says it is water resistant up to 80 minutes (I still reapply after an hour). Of course, this product includes the Active Naturals® which helps to keep baby’s skin calm.
If you are looking for another Aveeno® sheer body lotion option to keep your skin looking great during the spring and summer, then check out my current favorite, Aveeno® Sheer Hydration Daily Moisturizing Lotion. I do not like icky residue from lotions. I can’t stand it when you have to rub the lotion in for what feels like an eternity until you are no longer slick. This stuff is the bomb! It is a no residue lotion. I rub in this quick absorbing lotion for 15 seconds and I’m good to go for the rest of the day. I can’t feel the lotion, but I can feel my skin being amazing. Look, I even made a little Instagram video for you to prove it using a tissue.
