Save Their Skin and Teach Them to #MimicMommy with Neutrogena | #GIVEAWAY | ends 7/3

This post was sponsored by Neutrogena® as part of an influencer activation for The Motherhood.

I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.


I grew up in the generation of suntan lotion and sunburns. We spent hours upon hours at the pool and on the lake without protection. Nobody thought anything of it except that sometimes you got freckles if you burned enough.

Nowadays, we know better. Unfortunately, despite all we know about sun protection, skin cancer continues to be a health epidemic in the U.S. – on average, more than 350 Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer every hour – even though skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers.

Did you know that just 1-2 severe and painful sunburns can increase the risk of melanoma by 40 percent?!

That’s why I try to set the right example for my kids. I always make sure my kids see me applying sunscreen on myself first and then, have them #MimicMommy.

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

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

Our entire family uses Neutrogena® Sunscreen and it even saved us from the hot Caribbean sun!

I love Neutrogena® Beach Defense® Sunscreen:

Beach Defense® provides superior skin protection from harsh summer elements, clinically proven to help defend the signs of sun damage

Prolonged contact of the skin with water makes the skin more susceptible to UV rays. Formulated with HELIOPLEX® Technology, the sunscreens form a broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protective barrier that is clinically proven to help skin defend against harsh summer elements

Beach Defense® Sunscreen Spray provides beach strength broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection in a lightweight, fast absorbing mist, ideal for outdoor skin protection of the active family

Water resistant (80 minutes)

Lightweight, fast absorbing

Oil free, PABA free
