I know that many of my fellow Texans aren’t as fond of our summers as I am, but I live for them because I can get out and explore.  While I’m not 100% in when we hit our 100 degree marks, I prefer the heat to cold any day, so I find a way to make it through.  Whether it’s that I decide to take a stroll in my neighborhood, city or a fab nearby location, I know the hot summer sun requires planning on my end.  That’s where these summer healthy essentials come into play.

First is Neutrogena’s line of sunscreen products.  My skin isn’t the most tan friendly, especially when I’m trying to get my first sun of the season, so I tend to turn to good quality, higher SPF’s to keep my skin from getting red and burnt.  Whether I hit the lake, the river, or the beach this summer, I know I can rely on Neutrogena Beach Defense to protect my skin.

I also know I can turn to Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist to cover those hard to reach places and to apply or reapply coverage.  Whether I’m by water or on the trail, this sheer mist is easy to apply and feels so light and fresh it’s perfect for all the outdoor adventure and summer fun to come.

For me summer fun is all about hikes, swimming, scenic views, friends, family and my furbabies.

With so much action going on, a little scratch here and there is bound to happen.  It’s because of this that Neosporin is also part of my summer essentials.

  1. I almost forget to get us sun block, then I end up spending “beach prices” to make sure our skin is protected.

    Neosporin is a must for us and the two littles. They think it cures everything and I allow them to believe that. lol

    I’m also a fan of all apps that give me discounts and builds points.

    • Isn’t that the truth Michelle. The price hike once your near water is pretty astounding, but we do what we can to make sure us and our loved ones are protected. Thankfully, there’s a Walgreens on practically every corner just for those last minute items and with their discounts and points, you’re bound to find savings every time. 😉
