People are much more conscious about the dangers that man-made ingredients can cause to someone’s health. In a research study done in 2014, it was found that over 50% of women of all ages surveyed considered it highly important that their products be all-natural.

Sunshine on the Go: Sun-Drenched Fun and Skin Care

natural sun care products
From packing lunches to applying sunscreen in advance, taking a trip outdoors with kids can be a tough mission. It’s no secret that outdoor adventures are fun, but even a day out and about  takes planning and preparation, especially when there are kids involved.

One of the most important tips when getting the family ready for a fun-filled day at the beach or park is to plan, plan, and plan! Products on the Go offers a variety of packages that will help you quickly, and easily prepare for your day at the beach, pool, waterpark and all the adventures in between.

Our Sunshine on the Go ReadyPacks offer a plethora of necessities for fun-in-the-sun including sunscreen, moisturizer, reusable water bottles and even a towel. All of these must-have items are priorities when spending time with your family in the sun.

In order to stay safe and prevent sunburns and skin damage, it is important to apply sunscreen before you go out in the sun and then consistently re-apply throughout the day. We recommend re-applying every two hours.

To make your life even easier, Products on the Go also offers natural and eco-friendly diaper changing sets including everything you need to change your babies diaper while out and about. We offer both a wet and dry option, so you never have to worry about forgetting something at home.

When you’re out in the sun all day, it’s important that you stay hydrated. Being in saltwater and having the sun beat down on you can be extremely draining; add in running around with young kids and you’re guaranteed to get weary.

Staying hydrated is important for everyone in the family. Be sure to drink lots of water and constantly re-fill your water bottle! It also helps to set up a shady area for you and the kids to cool down under. An umbrella or tent are certain to save you from that long summer heat.

Lastly, don’t forget to make sure you pack healthy snacks to keep everyone energized and happy throughout the day. There’s nothing worse that a grouchy and hungry kid. In fact, the Sunshine on the Go JetPack has a convenient insulated zipper bottom to keep drinks and snacks cool in the heat. Quick tip for packing food: go for smaller items that don’t require much preparation or utensils to limit the number of items you have to carry (and remember).

Being with young ones at the beach is so entertaining. It’s almost inspirational to see you child’s imagination go wild as they build sandcastle fortresses and moats to play in. A smart tip for helping your kids create an epic sandcastle is to bring an old credit card with you – along with the obvious shovel and pail. An old credit card is great for molding and sanding down your castle to perfection.

There’s no limit to the fun you can have in the sun with your kids. It’s important to use sun care while also enjoying yourself and Products on the Go is here help you do that by giving you one less thing to worry about!
