Bare Belly Organics Mineral Sunscreen Giveaway

Last, but not least, we couldn’t have a Summer Event without sunscreen! Bare Belly Organics is Rated 1 in EWG Safety Rating and it may just be my favorite lotion yet! Let me tell you why.

I am more a fan of wearing UV protective swimwear and clothing, not going out at the sun’s hottest, and staying in the shade whenever possible. Sunscreen usually comes last at my house, but of course we like to be outdoors to stay active so faces and arms need to be covered. I am very picky about what I buy…it has to be the best.

With that said let me tell you a story about this past week. P’Diddy and O’Bear went to sports camp three hours a day where they were outside the entire time. Each morning as I was applying sunscreen I had to hear ‘ewwwww mom this stuff smells’. ‘No mom I don’t want to put this white stuff on. It’s gross’ etc. You get the idea. I was using two different brands I had and remember I only buy the best.

On the last day of camp my Bare Belly Organics had arrived. We could not believe the difference! It glides on like a smooth lotion. Unlike other sunscreens it is not thick and bright white and gets on clothing where you can’t get it off. Do you know what I mean? The smell might actually be called good. I know it feels good. And no complaints!

Let me have Bare Belly Organics explain…

This is a non-nano mineral sunscreen and works by sitting on top of the skin to block and reflect the sun’s UVA/UVB rays. Nanoparticles are particles of matter that are small enough to enter the bloodstream through the skin (bad). NON-Nanoparticles, therefore, are those that will NOT enter your bloodstream (good). This is why we use non-nano zinc oxide as the active ingredient in all of our sunscreens.

Sunscreen Cream. Buttery-smooth, you will not believe how nice this makes your skin feel! The convenient tub lets you apply one handed, and the large opening allows you to scoop out every last bit. UVA/UVB broad spectrum SPF 30.

Sunscreen Face Stick. Customers love our Sunscreen Face Stick because it’s easy, fast, and doesn’t get in their eyes. Our unique formula of natural ingredients also means that it is gentle to the skin and doesn’t sting like traditional chemical sunscreens. A perfect size to keep in your purse for those spontaneous afternoon trips to the park. UVA/UVB broad spectrum SPF 34.

Sunscreen Body Stick NEW! One-of-a-kind sunscreen application like you have never seen it! Fast, easy, and mess free. Think of it as a giant face stick for your body.  Even coverage with every swipe.  Perfect for kids and families! UVA/UVB broad spectrum SPF 34.

Bare Belly Organics is GOOD for your skin!

I’ve tried many sunscreens that are so much more expenseive and this one I really like. I will always have some in stock!

They also have a whole line just for baby!

Keep Balanced this Summer with Balance Bare Bars Giveaway

I walked 29,000 steps this past weekend. Half of that uphill as that is what happens when walking up a mountain right? When I arrive at the top and have views like this…it is all worth it.

According to a recent survey by Balance Bar, 43% of Americans feel most balanced during the summer! I know I do. It’s easier to get outside and enjoy the weather while it’s nice.

To help you feel good inside and out this summer, Balance Bar is sharing Gabby Reece’s tips for staying active and smart eating:

Make it your own: There is not one right way to get it done. There is the right way that works for you. When it comes to eating healthy, find the foods you like and implement those into your daily diet. The same goes for exercise. If you hate the gym then find something outside that is manageable for you. This is not about torture; this is about creating a lifestyle that you can do week after week.

Watch the calendar: Use summer for motivation to shape up but don’t wait for June 21st. If you wait until summer actually starts, you’ll feel rushed and end up crash dieting or doing a crazy workout schedule. I personally like to keep a calendar in my kitchen and cross off the days as I countdown to bikini weather. The visual reminder – right where you eat – is helpful in keeping you on track.

Sign up a friend: We tend to be more successful at accomplishing some type of exercise if we have an accountability partner. Solicit a friend and maybe use this as your time to connect. You can train for a 5k together or join an outdoor boot camp; there are a lot more options now that the weather is improving.

Balance Bar tips

Plan to snack: Take snacks (like fruit, nuts or a Balance Bar®) wherever you go to prevent mindless eating. If I have an afternoon or early evening workout planned, I make sure to have one of these handy an hour or so before so that I have plenty of energy to get in a good workout.

Variety is key: Make as many meals as you can at home so you can control your nutrition. These are some of my favorite recipes,– fresh and full of veggies for springtime! To keep things interesting and fresh at my house, I try to rotate foods. One night I may go for something heavier with veggies and grains, and then the next night focus on proteins. I really try to change up the food and create a great deal of variety.

Each day is a new chance and it’s never too late: If you fall out of your summer shape up routine one day, don’t sweat it. Forgive yourself and move on – and just keep moving!
