When the weather gets warmer and it finally stops raining there are two things that my family enjoys doing and that is hiking and going to the beach. It would be allot easier if people would just call it beaching instead of going to the beach. I would say for my two kids and I the beach thing is preferred over hiking. But for my husband he would prefer hiking in the backwoods any day. Lets just say I have to twist his arm a bit to get him to come with us to the beach. As far as both activities are concerned it is important to use sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. A good sunscreen will not only protect your skin from the discomfort of sunburns but it could also help prevent some skin cancers.
Did you know that according to the Skin Cancer Foundation men over 50 are more than twice as likely to get skin cancer when compared to women. Not that my husband is 50 yet but this report made me think. My husband for years would go out hiking, bike riding, or working in the yard without wearing sunscreen. He would always tell me that the sunscreen would come off when he sweated so it didn’t make a difference anyhow. Recently I was introduced to a bunch of new products from Banana Boat with one of them specifically designed for men.
It is called Banana Boat Triple Defense Sunscreen for Men. It contains ActiveProtect Technology, which provided heavy-duty UVA/UVB protection, which kicks in when the suns rays are the strongest. This formula also combats odor, even while your man is sweating, and it helps hydrate the skin. It is available as a lotion or a clear mist in SPF 30 and SPF 50+.
I gave it to my husband or should I say I applied it on my husband the other day before he went on a 4-hour hike in the mountains.
I applied a small dot of Banana Boat Triple defense for men and started rubbing in. TIP: remember, when you apply the sunscreen on your shoulder, make sure you cover the entire tattoo as well, because not only the skin around your tattoo gets sunburned too, but it may cause tattoo to fade from the sun.
So as Iwas rubbing the cream on to the skin, I noticed how smooth and soft Banana Boat Triple defense for men went on. No crazy excessive rubbing-in was needed. It was lightly perfumed with the pleasant odor. In the photo above I left a bit of lotion on his shoulder to show you how clear and smooth it goes on the skin, with no leaving white sticky residue.
I also put the bottle in his backpack so he could re-apply it if he felt necessary. He assured me that he had no plans on spraying himself in the middle of the trail but appreciated the gesture. About half way through his hike I got a text from him saying, “It’s still on my skin and working even though I’m sweating up a storm”. I texted him back saying that I was glad and that I would see him soon. He also texted me back this pic with awesome scenery in the background.
Later on that evening when he came back from his day trip he didn’t have the familiar red-sunburned nose, neck, and, shoulders. He was a little bit tanned but didn’t have one bit of sunburn. I asked him if he reapplied the sunscreen and he said he didn’t have too. Overall my husband was pleased with the performance of Banana Boat Triple Defense Sunscreen for men. He liked that fact that it didn’t run and was not greasy or sticky. Overall I’m happy because now I get peace of mind when it comes to sun protection and my husband.
