Summer is almost here, and I’m so excited! This is my favorite time of year. School is almost out, which means my daughters are going to be home more often. This is one of the things I look forward to in the summer. Having my daughters home more is always fun. We’ve already got some plans for the summer as to what we can do to keep busy. We’re currently working on a garden since we moved in fall. We have our own home, so the garden is going to be a lot of fun. My daughters enjoy being outdoors as much as I do, so this summer we’re going to be out there more often. With us wanting to be outside so much in the summer, that also means the sun will be out more and it will get hot. Every time we go outdoors we always make sure to wear our sunscreen, and I can tell you we will be outdoors a lot this summer, especially with us working on our garden.
NO-AD sunscreen is great for protecting your skin while you’re outdoors. Nobody likes to be sunburned, so using these product to protect your skin from the sun is always a great idea. I have two daughters, and I always make sure to put sunscreen on them. I also burn easily, so I make sure to always wear it as well. I have very fair skin, so these NO-AD sunscreen products are perfect for me.
More about NO-AD:
NO-AD is the sunscreen that costs less per ounce because “no advertising” means the brand doesn’t buy expensive TV, print, or radio ads, passing the savings onto consumers. Introduced in 1962, NO-AD is one of America’s original sun care labels. Its unbeatable cost-and-quality combination affirms NO-AD as the sunscreen moms trust and sun lovers love.
All NO-AD sunscreens are PABA-, paraben-, and retinyl palmitate-free. Notably, all lotions SPF 15 and higher have received The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation for “safe and effective protection.”
The sun care body and face stick spf 50 is one of my favorite products. It goes on clear and there is no mess afterwards. It is water-resistant for about 80 minutes. It is also fragrance-free, nonirritating formula is great for sensitive skin. I have sensitive skin as well as my youngest daughter, who has eczema. I have to be careful of the products I use on her skin. I have no problem using the NO-AD sun care products on her skin. They work great for her. What I love about this particular product, is that it’s the stick. I can easily carry this product in my purse and apply it when needed. You never know when you’re going to need sunscreen, so I’m happy to have this product on me at all times.
The kids gentle sunscreen super size lotion spf 50 is great for my daughters. I love that they carry a product that is meant for kids. You don’t always get to see that, so it’s nice to have a bottle of sunscreen just for them. This product is specially developed for Kid’s sensitive skin. This formula is very water-resistant, very sweat resistant and hypoallergenic. It also contains Aloe Vera and Vitamin E to help soften the sun’s drying effect on your skin. As I mentioned earlier, my youngest daughter has eczema, so this is the perfect sunscreen for her. We haven’t had any problems with her skin since we have been using the product. That’s a huge plus for my family. It can be hard to find products for her that won’t affect her skin.
Take some time to read over the photo above. This has a lot of useful information for when it comes to sunscreen. You may be surprised to see what you didn’t know about it. I have always applied more sunscreen after I have been in a pool or somewhere where you get wet. I always knew that was very important, because the sunscreen won’t last too much longer after you’ve been in a pool. You want to always make sure to apply your sunscreen after a couple of hours. I always knew that you needed to apply it every few hours, I just didn’t know it was ever two hours. That is something I learned and I’m very glad I did. I’ll be making sure to apply the sunscreen a lot more often this summer.
- Apply sunscreen 15 to 20 minutes before going out in the sun and reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating.
- Use a golf ball-sized amount (1 oz.) each time you apply or reapply sunscreen.
- Sunscreen should be broad-spectrum, at least SPF 30 and water-resistant to help protect from UVA and UVB rays.
- If used properly, families should go through many ounces of sunscreen during a season in the sun.
- Remember, spray-on sunscreens MUST be rubbed into the skin to be effective.
Skin Cancer Awareness
- On average, 1 person dies from melanoma every hour.
- 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.
- Research shows women are 9 times more likely than men to notice melanoma on others.
- Nearly 9,500 Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer each day.
- The five-year survival rate for melanoma when detected and treated in its early stages is 98%.
Recent Survey of Moms About Sunscreen
NO-AD recently commissioned a survey of moms (with children younger than 18) and discovered some surprising results.
- The survey found that nearly two in 10 moms (17%) were unaware that, after their initial slathering of sunscreen, they needed to reapply after extended exposure.
- The survey also revealed that fewer than half of moms (48%) know the correct amount of sunscreen they need to apply to the face and body while at the pool, lake, or beach.
- More than half of moms surveyed (54%) thought that the proper time to apply sunscreen is as soon as they start feeling their skin burning.
- Nearly 2 in 10 (17%) confessed that their reason for not reapplying sunscreen was that they wanted a tan — this, despite widespread warnings about the dangers of skin cancer from unprotected exposure.
As you can see, it’s very important to make sure you’re properly wearing your sunscreen and reapplying it every 2 hours. Getting a sunburn is no fun and the risks of cancer are even worse. Please make sure to apply your sunscreen as often as needed.
Check out some of these quotes from dermatologist Dr. Richard C. Kirkpatrick:
These are some quotes about sunscreen usage from dermatologist Dr. Richard C. Kirkpatrick of Brevard, Florida.
“NO-AD’s value proposition is expressly intended to offer consumers high-quality sun care at a price per ounce they can afford and which encourages proper sunscreen use.”
“Understanding both application frequency and amount is essential to proper sun care. You cannot have one without the other,”
“The correct amount of sunscreen to be applied — or reapplied — is one ounce. Think of a shot glass of sunscreen or an amount the size of a golf ball.”
“By the time you feel your skin burning, the sun’s UV rays are damaging your cells’ DNA,” Dr. Kirkpatrick said.

I hope that you were all able to learn something new about sunscreen. I know I have learned a lot more already from NO-AD. I love that they have so many different kinds of sun care products. I can find the right ones for my family without having to spend a lot. I use to have to spend a lot on my youngest because of her eczema. I’m glad we finally found a sunscreen that doesn’t cost much that can work great on her skin.
