Celebrate Day 4 of National Sun Awareness Week with Neutrogena CoolDry Sport Sunscreen Lotion

It's National Sun Awareness Week and considering how militant I am about us all wearing our sun protection, I decided we should dedicate a post every day this week to fun sun facts and an awesome sunscreen pick - enjoy and you're welcome!

If you're the sporty type and don't like sunscreen because it's always running in your eyes then you'll want to feast them on:

Neutrogena CoolDry Sport Sunscreen SPF 60 - 147ml - $14.99 - a non-greatsy, quick absorbing and oil-free lotion built for the toughest conditions of summer, even intense activities, so it stays on strong while you sweat with 80-minute water and sweat resistance. It is specially formulated with micromesh technology to allow your skin to breathe while you sweat so your skin feels clean and dry. It won’t run into eyes and also contains helioplex technology to provide photostable UVA/UVB protection for your skin.

Also available in an SPF 30 lotion as well as SPF 60 and SPF 30 in a spray format.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in Canadians… and it is also the most common cancer in the world, according to the Canadian Dermatology Association (CDA) which means that you can’t afford to not wear sunscreen!

By following the CDA’s four simple steps outlined below, you can help minimize your risk for the type of skin cancer with the fastest-rising diagnosis rate, melanoma:

1.       Limit sun exposure during peak sun hours, 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. and especially around midday when the sun’s radiation is the strongest.

2.       Seek shade as much as possible, especially when your shadow is shorter than you. That is a key sign that the sun is directly overhead and its rays are the strongest. Short shadow = seek shade!

3.       Wear protective hats and clothing. Though this doesn’t mean you still shouldn’t apply sunscreen, so it’s important to remember to always apply sunscreen to the parts of your skin that are exposed, like your face, lips, neck and ears.

4.       Always use a SPF 30 or higher broad-spectrum sunscreen and reapply at least every two hours, and even earlier after swimming or sweating.
