Learn about a Stylish Solution to Skin Cancer Prevention

Did you know: Skin cancer is the fastest growing form of cancer in the United States… It’s true, and that’s a pretty scary thing to think about, when you realize that the majority of people’s sun damage happens before they’re 18 years old. When I was a kid, my mom didn’t have the kind of information that we have today – and had no idea that all that sun we were getting could potentially be so harmful. And she also didn’t have access to the kind of super innovative products that we’re lucky to have today – Like these super fun fashions from GrUVyWear. Check ’em out…

How fun is this, right? I love the bright colors, the fun summer print, the super cool mini surfer-girl styling – and most of all, I love that this adorable gear also blocks 98% of the harmful rays when Abby spends the whole day out in the sunshine. It’s so great to know that while she’s rockin’ this sweet summer style she’s also being totally protected from sun damage. {Do you know the dangers of tanning and sun damage?} About 10 years ago my dad was diagnosed with a massive malignant Melanoma – the worst type of skin cancer. Before that, I’d been a tanning bed junkie for years – in my early 20’s I definitely wasn’t thinking about things like cancer, I thought I was still invincible. I’d known friends who just had a mole removed in a quick procedure, I thought that was all that skin cancer was about.  But – watching my dad go through all of the treatment for his cancer totally opened my eyes to how serious skin cancer can be – I had NO idea! That’s why it’s extra important to me to make sure I keep Abby’s sensitive toddler skin safe and protected now.

In the summertime, we spend our whole days outside. {Yes, it takes almost a week of summer vacation before I can get the boys to stop asking to play the XBox, lol. But once they get used to playing games in real life, we have a blast.} Last year was our first summer in this new house, and it’s such a great place to have the kiddos grow up. We’ve got a big in ground pool, nice side yard and a huge field to run in, and a peaceful, pretty, shaded patio for me to work on my laptop while keeping an eye on the wild ones as they play. With all that time outdoors I definitely need to take some precautions – I’m a Coppertone Mom, so I always have some great sunblock products to cover the kids in before heading out. {Make sure to apply about 20 minutes before going out into the sun.} But if you’ve got kids, you know how hard it can be to coat a squirmy toddler in slippery sunblock, right? Reminds me of a rodeo! So – It’s a total time saver – and sanity saver! – to just apply it to her arms and legs, then put on her cutie patootie GrUVyWear outfit to keep the rest of her skin safe.
