A Summer Full of Sun and Swim

It’s been the Summer of Swim Meets at my house.  Let’s be honest, it’s always the Summer of Swim Meets, but this summer has been pretty back-to-back.  Swim practice every day, and a swim meet every weekend, all over the state.  We’ve been out in the sun nonstop.

We’re vigilant with sunscreen, always, but sometimes when we get a little too much sun, and our skin is a little extra dry, I like using a nice moisturizer to give everyone’s skin a little therapy in-between sunny days at the pool.


Because let’s be honest, the dry Utah mountain air + sunshine = thirsty / needy skin.  And the occasional sunburn on top of that makes for misery.

We’re currently loving this Vaseline Aloe spray.  It smells tasty, yummy and feels so cool and refreshing on ouchy burned skin.  We tried some after a pretty intense all-day swim meet on the red skin of my little swimmer and the overall consensus was:

  • 1) it’s easier to use spray aloe on burned skin than to rub it in
  • 2) it smells good
  • 3) we’re packing this in the car for every remaining summer swim meet

We give an overall A+ to the new Vaseline Aloe Spray Moisturizer from my household to yours.  Pack it in your swim bag, your beach bag, tuck it in your medicine cabinet.  We like it a lot.
