Banana Boat® Sun Care online tool

Last month, I participated in my third 5K mud race on a day when the temperatures reached beyond thirty-one degrees and the sun shone relentlessly. The course was located nearly an hour from where I live and, with the excitement of the 12-obstacle run looming overhead, I neglected to reapply sunscreen before embarking on my mini adventure. Big. Mistake. My heat began at 11:30 AM, which happens to be within the range of time when the sun's rays are strongest. I knew this. And yet, I chose to leave my bag at check-in without putting on so much as an ounce of fresh Banana Boat® SunComfort™ SPF 50+ Sunscreen lotion

Why did I not re-apply? cried I. 

I don't burn easily but, on that day, after nearly two and a half hours in the sun, I suffered the worst sunburn I've had in a very long time. If I could go back in time, I would tell my more naïve self to refer to the Banana Boat® Sun Care online tool and adhere to the guidelines. The tool is so easy to use and, within seconds of completing a short quiz, it helps you determine how much sunscreen you will need depending on your planned summer activity, as well as recommend the best solution for you. 

Banana Boat® Sun Care Walmart value pack

Designed in conjunction with Walmart, the Banana Boat® Sun Care online tool is an essential resource for families since many are unaware of proper sun care practices that help them stay protected from the sun's harmful rays. In fact, 58% of sun care users misuse sunscreen by failing to reapply one ounce of sunscreen every two hours when spending time outdoors. (One ounce is the equivalent of two tablespoons for those of us who like visuals.)

Sun ready is fun ready!

Take it from me: nursing a sunburn is no fun at all. While I'm certain many of us are quite diligent when it comes to ensuring our children are protected from the sun, we mustn't forget that mom and dad should also be prepared with the right amount of sun care and that it should be applied regularly so that the whole family can make the most of summer fun. So, the next time you are at Walmart, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for their handy value packs and stock up on Banana Boat® sunscreen.

To help you get #SunReadyFunReady, Banana Boat® is offering up a $100 gift card to one lucky Canadian reader. Simply complete the Rafflecopter form below. Click here for full contest details.
