Help raise your kids to be part of the first “sun safe” generation with this one easy sun protection idea!
On average, more than 350 Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer every hour. My dad and my sister are two of them. Both spend a lot of time outdoors and despite the fact that 99% of dermatologists agree that using sunscreen helps lower skin cancer risk, they didn't use sunscreen like they should.
So I of course, am doing everything I can to make sure that my kids (and myself) are sun safe this summer and every other day of the year!
Neutrogena® is leading a call to action to moms, called #MimicMommy, to use sunscreen in front of your kids to demonstrate the importance of daily sunscreen use. Every mom knows their little shadows mimic what they do. Sometimes it's not exactly our best habits they mimic. But #MimicMommy gives us moms a chance to set the right example and let our kids see us applying Neutrogena® sunscreen on ourselves first, and then, have them #MimicMommy.
One way to get kids to have fun while putting on sunscreen is to sing a song and dance. We use the kid song “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes.” My kids learned the song in Spanish class this school year and are obsessed with singing it. It's a great way to make applying their favorite Neutrogena® sunscreen fun and to remind them to cover all areas of their bodies.
Or you can use this catchy tune from The Holderness Family!
Neutrogena is launching the MimicMommy MOVEment, to rally moms to help change skin cancer statistics and raise the first generation of sun-safe children. Neutrogena teamed up YouTube stars the Holderness Family to encourage all to get up and DANCE their way to sun protected skin. Check out how in the new video here: The #MimicMommy Dance. To help support this important cause, Neutrogena will donate $10K to the Children’s Melanoma Prevention Foundation.
How You Can Make A Difference and Start Protecting Your Children’s Future
- Start early! Start using daily sunscreen on yourself and your kids as soon as they are old enough for it to be safe.
- Make daily sunscreen application second nature for your kids by having them see you apply sunscreen on yourself.
- Spread the world to help educate and protect those you love! #MimicMommy Mondays are perfect for this and make sharing easy!
I know that it can be tough to juggle all the demands of motherhood, but together, let’s create the first sun-safe generation! Every Monday this summer, follow #MimicMommy on social media as a reminder to your commitment to instilling safe sun behaviors in your kids.
