Baby Your Skin this Summer with these AVEENO SPF Options

Maybe I’m just a kid at heart, but I swear that there are plenty of elements in sunscreen for the little ones that I desperately need too! I’ve been using  Aveeno’s Baby formula face stick for years and swear by its longevity and efficacy, and just started in on the Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Sensitive Skin Face Stick Sunscreen SPF 50  (around $10.49) this summer to great results. After a recent visit to the dermatologist who told me that I needed to be extra careful about the existing sun damage on my ears (guilty as charged- I’ve been neglecting them!), I’ve found that this stick is the perfect applicator to reach tiny areas quickly without the mess or the anxiety of getting a glob of sunscreen in my tresses. So I guess working easily around small areas also applies to babies too, right?

I also like that this formula includes 100% naturally sourced sunscreen ingredients, and is a wonderful option for use on the face as it is non-irritating, hypoallergenic, non-greasy and water resistant for up to 80 minutes.  The less fuss and re-application, the better! If you aren’t a fan of the face stick, reap all of the protective and sensitive skin benefits in a liquid lotion version (also $10.49).
