Even though summer is almost over and kids are heading back to school, as long as you are still spending time in the sun, it’s important to remember to put on sunscreen. If you don’t protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, it can lead to premature skin aging and wrinkling, suppression of the immune system, and of course, skin cancer. Sunscreen is classified by an SPF number which refers to its ability to deflect the sun’s rays. This number is calculated by comparing the amount of time needed to burn sunscreen-protected skin versus unprotected skin. Using a broad spectrum SPF of 15 or higher protects against sunburn and reduces the risk of skin cancer and premature aging caused by the sun. We always go for higher SPF numbers – 15 may be effective, but 50 is even better!
When I was Gabbie’s age or a bit older, I realized that while wearing sunscreen, I didn’t get tan. I risked not wearing sunscreen and sure enough, I burned. I have gotten a few bad sunburns in my life and I still worry about the effect they will have on my skin as I get older. I no longer take that risk or let my kids risk their skin the way I did.
Our favorite type of sunscreen is the continuous spray type, because it is so easy and quick to apply. Coola Suncare sent us their Sport SPF 50 Guava Mango Sunscreen and it’s our new favorite! It offers an ultrasheer,
antioxidant-rich continuous spray and I love the Guava Mango scent! Coola Sunscreen Spray comes in other scents including Citrus Mimosa, Pina Colada, Tropical Coconut, and Fresh Cucumber, as well as unscented, and in either SPF 30 or SPF 50.
Coola Sunscreen Spray is formulated for activity and is water-resistant for 80 minutes. It is considered Farm to Face, meaning ingredients and vendors are locally sourced. It is also 70%+ certified organic, with

Coola incorporates natural plant phyto-protectors to help boost their products naturally and they use as many natural ingredients as possible. They are also a cruelty free and recycle friendly. I love that this brand is so environmentally conscious!
