Spring is almost here! When you think of the fresh season approaching you may picture sunshine, flowers, lighter clothes, and blooming trees. As you enjoy spring, don’t forget about your poor skin. That’s right it is time to bust out that sunscreen again. Experts will tell you to wear it year around, so if you are one of those good girls or boys a pat on the back to you. For the rest of us who forget about sunscreen when we are more worried about getting enough layers to keep from freezing to death, the warmer weather is a reminder that SPF is very important!
Winter weather probably did a number on your skin so you may want to opt for a sensitive skin formula as you begin to use sunscreen again. COPPERTONE® Sensitive Skin is a fragrance and alcohol-free sunscreen lotion that is hypoallergenic and water resistant. Clinically proven appropriate for sensitive skin, this product provides powerful, yet extra gentle broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Looking for a simple, moisturizing sunscreen? COPPERTONE ® ultraGUARD is a water resistant sunscreen retains SPF after 80 minutes of activity! Need something soft and gentle for the little ones? COPPERTONE® Water BABIES® Sunscreen Foaming Lotion is the #1 pediatrician recommended brand. This delicate sunscreen glides on as a soft, moisture-rich foam. The mild formula won’t sting or irritate baby’s sensitive skin.
The Coppertone Ultraguard Sunscreen Lotion had a bit stronger of an odor (typical sunscreen scent). It applied very easily as well and was not quite as thick as other lotions I have used. It rubbed nicely into my skin and I felt so soft after use! It provides SPF 50 protection and is non-greasy and waterproof. I did not have any skin reactions to this variety either.
The Coppertone Sensitive Skin Sunscreen Lotion was probably my favorite for adult use. It was fragrance free and hypoallergenic. Like the others, it rubbed smoothly into my skin leaving no residue. It did not have quite the moisturizing effect; however, the odor-less factor was the most important to me. I applied it to my legs, the most sensitive part of my body, and no reaction! It provides SPF 50 protection.
