Winter Sun, Winter Fun...Don'
t Forget the Sunscreen!
We're conditioned to use sunscreen all summer, but when you're outdoors in bright winter sun, are you sufficiently protecting yourself? A new study found that daily, year-round sunscreen use can significantly slow the skin's aging process by as much as 24 percent. (as reported by http://annals.org/article.aspx?articleid=1691732)
Whether you are at home playing winter sports or on vacation, ultraviolet rays lead to skin damage, so sun protection is a must every day. Take care of your skin now to prevent wrinkles and possibly melanoma later.
Remember, the sun's damaging rays can harm your skin even during cold winter months and on cloudy days.
Follow these sun protection tips from NO-AD:
· Limit sun exposure, particularly between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. when the sun's harmful UV rays are the strongest and most damaging to your skin
· Use a water-resistant, broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen with a value of 30 or higher
· Liberally apply sun protection 15 minutes before sun exposure
· Reapply every hour as needed, particularly after swimming or perspiring
· Your lips need protection, too—use an SPF 15 or higher lip balm

I have been using the NO-AD 30 sunscreen lotion. The frangrance is very pleasant. It feels good on my skin......makes my skin feel silky smooth.
It contains Aloe and Vitamin E. The bottle states that it's water resistant for 80 minutes.
I admit that the thought of using sunscreen in the winter hasn't ever crossed my mind. It is important though! I'm glad that NO-AD brought this to my attention.
I was also sent the NO-AD Kids 50 sunscreen lotion as well as a NO-AD Kids 50 continuous spray.
The scent of the Kids lotion is not the same as the adult version. I can't quite describe it. It's not over-powering.
The continuous spray has a top that turns to spray. I like this idea so the younger kids can't easily just go spraying it all over the place. It does spray evenly and even at any angle.
It does have a rather strong scent.
Both of the Kids products are also water-resistant to 80 minutes.
All NO-AD products are about twice the ounces of the other leading national brands for the same retail pricing.
One other thing that I notice is that the expiration dates on the products are 3 years down the line. I like this as in the past we've not used all of a product in one season and had to throw it out and buy new the following season.
I believe this is an excellent product.
