Memorial Day, as we know, is a day to remember the brave men and women who have served this country and to honor their bravery and sacrifice. However, it's not only a day for a moment of silence, it is also a day to celebrate the wonderful freedoms we have in this country.
Activities for Memorial Day
With the warm weather making its debut, there are loads of things you can do to celebrate the occasion. Here are our favorite warm weather-friendly activities with their skin-friendly companions and the deals to go with them!
Host a Barbeque!
Of the armory of activities to choose from, any celebration is not complete without a feast of food! Grab the family and rope in the friends. Heck, organized a neighborhood block party! There is literally no limit to the number of finger foods you can bring to a bbq! Watermelon, hamburgers, hot dogs, pulled pork sandwiches and popcorn. Fuel up and enjoy so outdoor games like volleyball and water balloons.
If it's a good day for bbq, it's also a good day for the sun! Sunshine means you're being exposed to not just UVA rays, but UVB as well. This means you need to protect your skin with an SPF of 30 or higher. If you don't like slapping that white goop on your face, take advantage of this weekend's Memorial Day deals while many brands are 20% off and try a tinted moisturizer like Juice Beauty SPF 30 Tinted Mineral Moisturizer and make sure the rest of you is covered with sunscreen as well by using Juice Beauty SPF 30 Sport Sunscreen that won't sweat of while you're having fun!
Watch a Memorial Day Parade
Attend your city's local Memorial Day parade! Not only is it a great way to commemorate the brave men and women in the military, but it pretty entertaining too! Plus, you might get a few pieces of free candy out of it. Aside from remembering your sunscreen at these events, you'll want to make sure you keep yourself well hydrated!
It's always a good idea to bring a water bottle with you, but you should also be hydrating yourself from the outside as well. Even with SPF, your skin will dry out in the sun, so keep it well moisturized with Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist Intense Deluxe Edition. With 20% off Jurlique this Memorial Day weekend, Jurlique Rosewater keeps your skin hydrated without feeling sticky or greasy and is enriched with hibiscus flower and rose extracts for long-lasting hydration.
Attend a Fireworks Display
Maybe one of the best things about Memorial Day—or any patriotic holiday for that matter—is fireworks. Explosions of color in the night sky, what could be better than that? Just because the sun's gone down, doesn't mean you're skin is completely safe. Even in the late hours of the night, maybe even especially at night, your skin still needs moisture.
Before you let yourself stay up to all hours of the night watching aerial kaleidoscopes let your skin absorb a hydrating moisturizer like Erno Laszlo Phelityl Night Cream to helps lock in moisture to help keep and maintain a pump, supple finish. This Memorial Day weekend get it 20% off when you buy two Erno Laszlo products!
