Imagine the perfect Sunday. You go for a walk in the park, pick up a fruit smoothie and then take your family to the beach for an afternoon of swimming and castle building. By the end of the day, you feel exhausted, but happy – radiant, even. A day in the sun will do that to you. At Neutrogena®, they believe every day is a SUNday — and that’s a good thing.

The new NEUTROGENA® EVERY DAY IS SUNDAY™ campaign celebrates the time you spend outside, living your healthiest life, enjoying the sun responsibly. Forget hiding inside in fear; you should feel confident that you have adequate sun protection to enjoy the outdoors. And that starts with making sunscreen application a basic everyday behavior — as routine as brushing your teeth. After all, the sun is there every day, and it’s often part of life’s most memorable moments. With healthy choices like daily sunscreen application, every day feels like that perfect SUNday.

We live on the California Central Coast and have lots of opportunities to go outdoors and enjoy the sun as a family! Whether it’s driving to the coast, going for a ride in our boat, or camping in our RV alongside the beach, we love to spend time outside together. As a mom, I am always looking for ways to keep our kids safe. That includes spraying them consistently with sunscreen, as well as myself and my hubby. We want to enjoy our time out in the sun rather than regret it later when facing a painful sunburn and more.

Everything You Need to Enjoy a Day in the Sun

A friend or family member – Grab your friends and find something fun to do outside!

Cool Shades – UV-blocking shades will protect your eyes and keep the skin around them looking youthful.

Great Hat with a Brim – Fashionable and protective — what’s not to love?

Long Sleeves for a Sunny Day – Many of the clothes you already have can provide sun protection — just be sure to choose opaque fabrics.

Sunscreen! – An obvious must-have. Pick a formula that works for your lifestyle – lotion, stick or spray.

Everyday Sun Hacks

Easy as Brushing Your Teeth: A recent study found that when you keep your sunscreen next to your toothpaste, you’re 20% more likely to apply every morning.

Set an Alarm or Calendar Appointment on Your Phone:

We all live busy, over-scheduled lives. Setting a daily SPF reminder will help get you in the habit. Bonus points if the alarm plays “Here Comes the Sun.”

Choose Makeup With SPF: While you’ll still need to layer sunscreen underneath, makeup with SPF will give you a little sun protection boost.

Pick a Formula You Like: This may seem like a no-brainer, but if you like applying your sunscreen — whether it’s a face lotion with SPF or an all-over stick — you’ll be more likely to use it.

Have Fun With It: Play your favorite song and dance along as you slather on your sunscreen. (Kids love this one, too!)

Go High: Research shows that higher SPF prevents a greater amount of sunburning rays from reaching your skin. As part of a recent study, skiers used a leading SPF 50+ and Neutrogena® Ultra Sheer® Dry-Touch SPF 100+. More than 50% had more sunburn on the 50+ skin versus 5% who had more sunburn on the SPF 100+ skin.

4th of July and the weekend following was a lot of fun for our family! It included RV camping on the beach, driving along the Central Coast and then going for a boat ride (and swimming in the lake) at Lake Lopez. Of course, all of this was complete with lots of applications of Neutrogena® sunscreen! I personally prefer the spray kind to the lotion as it’s quick and easy to apply and the kids kind of think it’s fun too. You can find it at Walmart, Target, Walgreens, CVS and even Costco! While I really like the Neutrogena® Ultra Sheer® Dry-Touch variety and the Neutrogena® Beach Defense® Water + Sun Protection Sunscreen (always looking for SPF 70 and higher if possible), there different varieties available.

Tips for Using Sunscreens

1 – Sunscreen is the most important step in your regular skin care and makeup routine. Always use at least an SPF 30. A higher SPF prevents a greater amount of the sun’s rays from reaching your skin.

2 – Apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before you go out in the sun.

3 – Reapply, reapply, reapply — after swimming, sweating or using a towel, as well as every two hours.

4 – If you’re a mom, take note! Follow the #MimicMommy philosophy and apply SPF in front of your kids. You are their best teacher – research shows that children’s sunscreen use is linked to watching mom apply.

    We lived in BC for more than 20 years, so I definitely have first hand experience in sunburns — also I burn so easily. I love the the spray on sunscreen.

Although it is much better to remember to use it before going into the sunshine. Thanks for sharing!

    This sunscreen is so awesome! We use it all the time!
