The July Challenge: Protect that Skin!


See? Sunscreen is fun! Credit: Maggiejumps

I can’t believe it’s July. This summer is so flying by. Like faster than the fruit popsicles are flying out of my freezer (or I’m eating them…whatever). As you might imagine, this month’s challenge is all about the hot, hot sun of July. While protecting your skin is important year-round, it’s especially important in the summer when you’re spending more time out in the sun with less clothing on (or no clothing, if you’re one of those people).

So this month, the FBGs challenge you to slap on the sunscreen every darn day. Put it on your face every morning, and if you’re going to be out in the sun for more than just a few minutes, put it on all other exposed areas. Make friends with that big floppy hat. Grab a baseball cap before you go for that run. Rock big sunglasses to protect your eyeballs. Be sun safe! Protect your skin!

Because all sunscreens are not created equal, we recommend that you be choosy with what you put on your body. We’re particular fans of California Baby and Alba Botanical if you can find them (I got mine at Whole Foods), but there are a number of natural brands out there that protect your skin without harsh chemicals. So who’s in? Who wants to accept the challenge to keep your skin healthy? Commit to this challenge on our discussion board (sign up for our free SparkPeople team here!), and help keep that skin healthy and beautiful with us! —Jenn
