Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock

How many times have you re-thought applying sunblock on your child because she was soaking wet?  You know as well as I do that it’s important to keep your child’s skin protected with sunblock and now you don’t have to worry about if she’s wet or dry.  Nuetrogena’s Wet Skin Sunblock can be applied directly to wet skin!  Someone once told me that you should reapply sunscreen as often as the strength of the suncreen.  For example, if the sunblock is SPF30, then reapply it every 30 minutes.  Don’t quote me on that, but I think it sounds like a great idea.

My family recently received sunblock from the Neutrogena Wet Skin line to try out including SPF 30, SPF 50, Kids SPF 70, +and 85+.  We have used these almost every day since.  Most parents and kids (that’s you too) are outside for hours a day, and whether the kids are playing in the sand, mom and dad are doing yard work, or we’re just out and about, we are exposed to the sun (UV rays). So put on the sunblock just like you put on a shirt!

Wet Skin Kids Sunblock Spray SPF 70+

About 90% of non-melanoma skin cancer is caused by ultra-violet exposure.

Neutrogena’s Wet Skin Sunblock is the first sunblock with helioplex and is designed to be applied directly to wet skin.  Wet Skin spray technology instantly cuts through water to form a broad spectrum UVA/UVB protective barrier.  I’m sure you are great about applying sunscreen before your kids go out to play or swim but sunblock doesn’t last forever and for optimal performance and protection it sunblock should be reapplied throughout the day.

Did you know that one of the largest risk factors for non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancers is severe sunburns as a child?  Please don’t let your child get sunburned.  Not only does a sunburned child make for a sleepless night, but that sunburn also increases their risk of developing skin cancer.  Carry Neutrogena’s Wet Skin Sunblock in your diaper bag, purse, beach bag, or picnic basket and use it!

Skin Cancer Facts

These Pediatric skin cancer facts are from The Skin Cancer Foundation website and the American Cancer Society website.

  • Melanoma accounts for up to three percent of all pediatric cancers.45
  • Melanoma is seven times more common between the ages of 10 and 20 than it is between birth and 10 years.47
  • Diagnoses — and treatment — are delayed in 40 percent of childhood melanoma cases.32
  • Ninety percent of pediatric melanoma cases occur in girls aged 10-19.46
  • Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers. It accounts for nearly half of all cancers in the United States. More than 2 million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer are found in this country each year.

One more very important tip.. put sunscreen on your and your kids even on overcast days.  Moms, this skin cancer in our children is something that we can help prevent!  Let’s do all we can.  Don’t be lazy about applying sunscreen and don’t give in if your child is stubborn about it.  My son hates applying sunblock, although now that mist sunblock is available, he’s better about it.
Ok, just one more tip.. apply sunblock behind your child’s ears, on their feet, and on the back of their legs.
