If you're anything like my family during the summer, you spend quite a bit of time soaking up the sun or in the water. We have a pool, boat, and beach house so during the warm months in Michigan the water is my favorite place to be.

Chlorine can dry your skin and hair out. My children both have sensitive skin, so we have to be careful. Aquaphor applied before going into the water can help protect sensitive skin. Not to mention after you've been in chlorine you want to make sure you wash it off your body and hair.

Since we're on the subject of skin, I want to discuss the importance of sunscreen protection. I can't stress how important this is. I have had at least 10 potential cancerous places removed, and I'm at high risk of melanoma cancer due to being mainly Irish and having fair skin.

In the 90's sunscreen wasn't important. We laid in the sun covered in baby oil and listening to our favorite jams on a boombox. Not to mention that going to the tanning booth was all of the rage and let's just say I spent plenty of time in the tanning booth as a teenager.

In today's day and age, we know the importance of sunscreen protection. So, when my kids were little, I made it a habit to lotion them up if I knew we would be outside for more than 10 minutes. It's such a great habit to start young because it can become a habit and something they will keep with them their entire life.

I'm all about keeping things as natural as possible so click here, and you will find a list of natural sunscreens. I'm going, to be honest using a more natural sunscreen is usually harder to apply but the benefits outweigh the annoyance.

How does your family protect their skin during the summer months?
