Memorial Day is almost here and it marks the start of the unofficial summer vacation season. Being a redhead, I have VERY fairy skin! I feel like I burn just looking at the sun! Heck, some people have joked that I burn just standing in front of a microwave – ha ha! Being so fair skinned, I was fortunate to have parents who always lathered me up with high SPF sunscreen (that was back before they had the convenient Sunscreen Spray that you can now get).

With 6 kids, we pretty much always have sunscreen on hand! Whether we’re going to the lake, the pool, an amusement park or just camping, our kids get sprayed down with the sunscreen pretty good. I’ve had my experiences getting sunburned and it can definitely turn a vacation sour. It’s no fun gasping every time you have to put a shirt on over your sunburn or someone accidentally touches it. So it’s just better to prevent it, right?

Despite all we know about sun protection, skin cancer continues to be a health epidemic in the U.S. In fact, on average, more than 350 Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer every hour. The sad thing is that skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. Pretty crazy, right? As few as two painful sunburns during childhood significantly raises the risk of melanoma, compared to kids who have never been sunburned.

Studies show that kids are more likely to adopt healthy habits, like applying sunscreen, if they see their moms applying it on themselves. Sparking this simple, healthy behavior change early on may help reduce the likelihood of developing skin cancer later in life. Neutrogena® is leading a call to action to moms to use sunscreen in front of their kids to demonstrate the importance of daily sunscreen use – #MimicMommy. #MimicMommy Mondays this summer serve as a reminder that today (and every day) I am committed to instilling safe sun behaviors in my children.

As moms, we want the best for our kids. One of the ways we can help protect our kids from sunburns and skin cancer is by setting an example and using sunscreen ourselves. To set the right example, I always make sure my kids see me applying sunscreen on myself first and then, have them #MimicMommy. I will not say that I’m perfect and I HAVE had a few yucky sunburns (usually when my kids are not with me on trips), but I’ve also used those as teaching tools showing my kids that it’s important to prevent sunburns from happening.

How You Can Make A Difference and Start Protecting Your Children’s Future:

  • Start early! Make daily sunscreen application second nature for your kids by having them see you apply sunscreen on yourself
  • Spread the world to help educate and protect those you love
  • Together, let’s create the first sun-safe generation

It’s really important to protect our skin from harmful rays and applying NEUTROGENA® BEACH DEFENSE® SUNSCREEN is a great way to do it! Interestingly enough, 99% of dermatologists recommend that their families and friends use sunscreen and 99% of dermatologists agree that using sunscreen helps lower skin cancer risk. Check out these NEUTROGENA® BEACH DEFENSE® products:

#Neutrogena #Sunscreen #skin #health #MimicMommy #ad


Developed for the beach’s intense sun yet powerful enough to protect you and your family anywhere.


Neutrogena ® , the #1 dermatologist recommended suncare brand, knows that beach days are meant to be carefree—free from sunburns and protection from harmful UV rays. That’s why the NEUTROGENA® BEACH DEFENSE® Sunscreens are made large enough for face and body usage for the whole family and powerful enough to protect them from the sun’s most damaging effects.

One factor that affects the permeability of the skin’s barrier, making skin more susceptible to UV rays, is prolonged contact of the skin with water in the pool, at the beach, or simply by prolonged sweating. The Neutrogena® Beach Defense ™ Sunscreen line formulated with HELIOPLEX® Technology forms a broad spectrum UVA and UVB protective barrier that is clinically proven to help skin defend against harsh summer elements. Ideal for active families, the NEUTROGENA® BEACH DEFENSE® Sunscreen line includes large spray and lotion forms that absorb quickly into face and body, without the greasy residue that you may feel when using some other sunscreens. Now, Neutrogena® introduces the same superior protection in a stick sunscreen form, suitable for both face and body, for a no-mess and no-fuss application.

  29. uprun4life says:

    I am guilty of skipping the sunscreen when I was a teen. I loved being tanned. I have olive skin and my sunburns turn to tan quickly. Now that I am older, I realize that it wasn’t a bright idea. Now if I am outside for long periods of time, I lather up with sunscreen. As a mom, I make my kids wear it.

  30. Lynndee says:

    We always wear sunscreen. For us, it’s a must! And we’ve always preferred the sunscreen spray because it’s so easy to put on.

  31. I’ll be paying very close attention to the sun and it’s damage this year. Last summer my kids got a little sunburned and scared me.

  32. Veronica says:

    I am a big user of Neutrogena products. I haven’t used the sunscreen, but will for teh summer

  35. Shirley Martinez says:

    I just bought these recently. Neutrogena has always been a great facial product brand so I’m certain these are amazing too.

  36. Kiwi says:

    I will be honest I never used Neutrogenas sun screen before! This would be great for my upcoming cruise experience!

  37. Jeanine says:

    I try to make sure I am always lathered up after getting all my kiddos done. Sometimes i FORGET myself and they remind me, but I do make sure to get it on!

  38. Barbara Montag says:

    This is a good reminder for me to get sunscreen.
    I tend to forget to put it on – especially when I am in the garden.
