Do I Really Have to Wear Sunscreen Every Day?

Do I Really Have to Wear Sunscreen Every Day?

3 Reasons Why Sunscreen Is Your Friend

OK, so it’s already getting pretty warm down here in Texas. (Yes, I do consider the upper 80s to be warm; no judgment please, my Southern friends.) And even though it hasn’t been that long since we posted How to Protect Your Family from Sun Damage, the climbing temperatures are reminding me to remind you of these scary but important facts about why wearing sunscreen so important:

  • A whopping 90% of nonmelanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
  • 86% of melanomas can be attributed to exposure to UV radiation.
  • On average, the risk for melanoma doubles if you’ve had more than five sunburns. (And it’s easy to be burned: You can even get a sunburn from the sun’s rays reflecting from water!)

Stay safe out there everyone. Please wear your sunscreen every day!

I have a box of your FLUFF AND TUMBLE Dryer Balls! Question, my dog a teddy bear 20#, doesn’t really care to play ball with me until tonight when I was taking my clothes out of the dryer a ball fell out and yes he grabbed it. First of all are they SAFE FOR DOGS TO PLAY WITH BECAUSE THAT WAS THE ONLY BALL MY DOG ACTUALLY WANTED TO PLAY WITH!!!? Can I order another box if it’s safe and at what cost? Great product!

Dogs seem to love our Fluff and Tumble Dryer Balls. Using them to play fetch hasn’t been a problem for us. Watch to be sure he doesn’t start pulling them apart and eating the wool. I’m not sure how well he would digest the wool fibers.

I have many days when I am not outside very much. Those days I am able to get out I wear sunscreen. I also wear broad brim hats, especially in the summer, and use sunglasses to help protect my eyes. If I’m going to be out a lot, I will also wear longer sleeves.
