Stocking Stuffer Gift Idea #1
In many states, the last thing we are thinking about in winter is sun protection. What most people do not know is that year round sunscreen can slow the aging process and result in younger looking skin. Although no guarantee, it also is a great way to work towards preventing wrinkles and skin cancer. Skin protection should also be considered a necessity as in other protective measures for many wintertime outdoor sports such as snowboarding, skiing, skating, etc,
What are some great year round options - A great choice for summer and winter athletes is oil-free BullFrog Sunscreen. Originally invented for surfers, BullFrog goes on clear and offers broad-spectrum sun protection in a durable water-resistant formula. Whether you snow board, ski, or simply toss a few snowballs, Bull Frog is a reliable sunscreen engineered to stay put during sports and outdoor activities. Remember, the sun's damaging rays can harm your skin even during cold winter months and on cloudy days.
Follow these sun protection tips from BullFrog:
· Limit sun exposure, particularly between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. when the sun's harmful UV rays are the strongest and most damaging to your skin · Use a water-resistant, broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen with a value of 30 or higher
· Liberally apply sun protection 15 minutes before sun exposure
· Reapply every hour as needed, particularly after swimming or perspiring
· Your lips need protection, too—use an SPF 15 or higher lip balm
My husband was very pleased when we received this for review purposes. He was familiar with the brand as he loves outdoor athletics. He also has recently became more involved in bicycling which requires additional sun protection - BullFrog Marathon Mist is perfect for that.
The Bullfrog spray sunscreen is easy to apply, is non greasy and has a light, pleasant scent. If you are more inclined to select a lotion, Bullfrog makes these varieties also! Remember, this makes a great, inexpensive stocking stuffer and will show the recipient that you care. Bullfrog products are available at national retailers, including WalMart, CVS and Walgreen's
