As summer approaches, Lake Travis residents begin to make our way to the lakes, pools and beaches. We love our fun in the sun! We know to bring our sunscreen, hats and sunglasses. We are not rookies at this. But recently I found out that sun damage can occur within 15 minutes of sun exposure and my family and I should be wearing sunscreen everyday — not just while out on the lake and not just when the sun is out.
So, sunscreen: Every. Single. Day.
As a mom of two young girls, dealing with the “sunscreen battle” is not on my list of favorite things to do at all, let alone every single day (honestly, it is right up there with cleaning toilets and packing lunches). My girls are so wiggly and often I get “IT’S IN MY EYES!” complaint (it really is never in their eyes).
