July 28th is National Waterpark Day!  Choose sunscreen that's free of harsh chemicals!

July 28th is National Waterpark Day!  Maybe you prefer to relax and unwind in the lazy river.  Maybe you love the thrilling, water-plunging rides and the white-knuckle hydro-power of slides.  Whichever you prefer, forgetting to use sunscreen can ruin your vacation so choosing the right sunscreen may be the most important decision of the day!

According to the Mayo Clinic“Intense, repeated sun exposure that results in sunburn increases your risk of other skin damage and certain diseases.”  It's important to use preventative measures to avoid skin damage so you can glow all summer long! 

We use Young Living's Mineral Sunscreen Lotions (SPF 10  / SPF 50) because they are free from harsh chemicals,  One of the most important reasons we chose this sunscreen is that it is also reef safe, making it the best healthy sun-exposure solution for your family and for the environment!!!

Sun Lover Tip: Wait a day or two after a sunburn before applying deep moisturizing products like V-6™ or a carrier oil. These can trap in heat and cause more inflammation. Stick with your essential oil-infused aloe vera gel or LavaDerm.
