What do you get when you get an unseasonable hot and sunny day during the month of April in Massachusetts? With two little anxious boys that just HAD to slip and slide the afternoon away? Besides the fun and reminder that summer is fast approaching, my babies got burned! And talk about a Mom feeling bad. No mother of the year award for me (again!).
I will admit that I forgot to slather my boys in sunscreen. Morning sunscreen application is simply a part of our Summer routine, but this day came out of nowhere. The fact that is was after 3 in the afternoon, I honestly didn't give it much thought either.
My already new summer necessities include this After Sun Rescue Balm from Clinique. And as my Joey says, "Ahh, Mom, that feels soooo good.", I know it provides instant soothing relief.
This must have in your summer kit is an ultra-moisturizing balm. Formulated with soothing aloe, this lotion calms sun-exposed skin. Not only is it instant, it provides post-sun repair to help prevent it from doing long term skin damage. It is also said to prevent peeling and may be used on both the body and the face.
It smells great too, and the yellow tube doesn't make my boys think they are getting slathered with anything too girly! ;)
Check out Clinique Rescue Balm with Aloe at Clinique counters as well as online. The tube is $20, and as a little goes a long way, this will last you through the summer. Of course, applying sunscreen daily will prevent any of this from happening in the first place.
