Sun Protection from Amazon
When it comes to choosing the right SPF products to protect skin and maintain a healthy glow through the summer months, Amazon.com is the one-stop shop to find it all!
See below for a sampling of Hannelore’s top tips and product selections, and visit www.Amazon.com/beauty to find the complete offerings of SPF and skin protecting products from the industry’s hottest brands.
SPRAY IT ON: Spray sunblocks are more convenient than traditional sunblock which needs to be applied with the hands, sometimes leaving behind a slick film on one’s palms. Make sure when selecting a spray sunblock to look for one that offers the same protection from skin damage as traditional sunblock lotions.

LATHER IT ON: Always choose a sunscreen which not only has the proper SPF rating, but also offers both UVA and UVB protection. Both kinds of ultraviolet rays can lead to skin aging and even cancer over time. Remember you need to pick the right time to apply your sunscreen, and that is about fifteen to thirty minutes before you get outside. It takes that long for the skin to properly absorb the cream or lotion.

KISSABLY SOFT LIPS: Don’t forget the lips! This is a common place on the body to neglect when going out into the sun. The lips need protection from heat, humidity, and the sun's rays- just like the rest of the body! Make sure to look for lip products with SPF to minimize damage from the sun's UV rays. The best protection for lips is anything that says sun block but sun blocks made specifically for lips will be less irritating than products made for the skin.

DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE KIDS! With the temperatures on the rise kids are spending more time outdoors and most importantly, they need extra sun protection just as much as you do! Many child-specific brands have high SPF and special formulations that are designed especially for children's sensitive skin. Because sunscreen can take up to 30 minutes to go into full effect, it’s a good idea to apply it at home before you drive to the pool or beach.
