UV rays are the primary cause of accelerated aging, contributing to the discoloration, sagging and wrinkling that results from UV-induced damage to the surface of the skin as well as to the underlying collagen and elastin that give our skin firmness and structure.
As I got older and wiser, and did my own research on this subject, I've been a pretty avid sun protection gal for about the last 10 years. But it doesn't do any good if you don't apply it well. Can you tell where I could and couldn't reach? In the areas that got coverage, look how well it worked.
Over the years, I've also tried to reduce the amount of chemical-based products I use. Sunscreen being a big one.
By combining UVA and UVB sunscreen agents with the patented antioxidant protection of Vital Repair+, Enfuselle SPF 30 for Body provides unique, patented, non-irritating and extremely effective sun protection while using the lowest levels of chemical sunscreens possible.

Shaklee - Enfuselle SPF 30 for Body Broad Spectrum Protection - #32565
It's designed for all skin types, including the most sensitive skin, this patented, water resistant, oil-free sunscreen smoothes easily into your skin and absorbs quickly, without leaving a sticky residue. There's nothing worse than feeling like a grease ball that sand sticks too, looking like a chalkboard or feeling like a sticky hot mess after application. It's a thin consistency, soothing and moisturizing. I use it on body and face. Sometimes under make-up too. And it's paraben free !

Just like many other Shaklee products, a little goes a long way. Like many people, I didn't care enough to protect my skin from sun damage in my younger days. It's never too late to start. I'm just glad I knew about Enfuselle sunscreen to start protecting Ashlyn right from the start.
When to wear sunscreen & other protective items.
Anytime you are playing in the water, sprinkler or pool. Even on cloudy days.
When you're needing a drink. Swim shirts are great protection.
When geese are crossing.
When you wear purple and you are just so stinkin cute !
When digging large holes. Lightweight breathable hats are great for baby's thin hair (the scalp can burn easily) and neck & face protection.
Even if you are just trying to get a nice quick photo of your kids. That sun can be harsh, even if you aren't out long.
When you just can't take it anymore and you fall asleep in your sandbox.
When choosing flowers to pick.
Especially at the beach. All those rays reflecting off the water and sand. At all times of the day, forget the between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm rule. At the beach, it's all the time.
Sunglasses are a must. Ashlyn wore them more easily when she was younger. She seems to really not want to wear them now. Our eye doctor stressed how important a good pair of shades are for your eyes.
Maybe even when you're having a bad day.
Shades and sunscreen are a must when your ridin' your Harley cruisin' for cute boys.
When your sloshing through puddles.
When you are trying to sneak in some added fiber to your nutrition and diet.
Even when it gets a little breezy.
Enjoy your summer and be sun safe !
