This month on our #CoolJob Series, Shopping Blitz is recognizing the lifeguard. Lifeguards are responsible for the safety and rescue of swimmers, surfers and water sport participants at beaches, lakes, swimming pools and water parks. Lifeguards are extremely strong swimmers and certified in water rescue and first aid.
While supervising people in the water, lifeguards spend most of their time in the hot sun. Lifeguards need clothing and gear that will protect them from UV rays and keep them cool and comfortable in the heat, so they can focus their attention on keeping swimmers safe. At Shopping Blitz, where you can shop for shoes and clothes online, we have the best products for staying comfortable and protected in the heat.
Aloe Up Pro Ultra Sport SPF 50 Spray Sunscreen 6 oz
Excessive sun exposure can cause premature aging, dark spots, sun damage and even cancer. Since lifeguards spend several hours a day in the sun, it’s important that they protect their skin with sunscreen. They also need a sunscreen that won’t sweat or wash off easily. The Aloe Up Pro Sport Broad Spectrum Continuous Spray Sunscreen provides sun protection at the touch of a button. Its proprietary formula enables a quick and easy application with no pumping or squeezing required.
The sunscreen dispenses at any angle and applies clear. Retails for $14.95.
