During the summer as the temperatures rise, my family and I like to get out on our bikes and go for a ride. Not only is it a great family experience that we all share but it is excellent exercise as well. When the sun gets stronger and we are wearing shorts and tank tops I worry about my kids and I getting sunburned. Even if you don’t burn easily it is important to protect your skin from the damaging UV rays that come from the sun. Even on an overcast day you would be surprised at how many UV rays can get through. Before we hit the bikes I always make sure we are covered with a high SPF rated sunscreen.
One of the problems I have encountered in the past with sunscreens is that they don’t work so well once you start sweating. For one they tend to wear off the more you sweat and that is not good. You don’t want to have to keep stopping to put on more sunscreen while you are riding or running outdoors. Plus who wants to take the bottle of sunscreen around with them anyway. Not me that’s for sure. All I have room for on my bike is my bottled water and my house keys. When it comes to sunscreen I just want to spray it on once and forget about it.
As if the people over at Banana Boat were reading my mind they created a Sport Performance Clear UltraMist Sunscreen with Powerstay Technology. I like the sound of Powerstay Technology. This latest innovation helps the sunscreen stay on strong throughout all outdoor activities.
I tested it out for myself and found that it does live up to its claims. The spray goes on light and doesn’t have to be rubbed in to your skin. You pretty much spray it on and leave it alone. If you want you can rub it in if it makes you feel better but it is not necessary. It goes on light and stays on strong.
I like to wear a tank top while riding my bike so I can get some sun tanned, while still keeping t-shirts on my kids to get their shoulders protected. For myself I’m loving this Banana Boat Sport Performance SPF 15, it’s light-weight feel and that it feels good on my skin, while for my kids I use the Banana Boat Kids Free Clear UltraMist Sunscreen.
Banana Boat also makes several other types of sunscreen that are just as good as this one.
Next time your planning some outdoor activities where your going to sweat a bit I suggest you give Banana Boats Sport Performance Clear UltraMist Sunscreen a try.
