Partnering with WearSPF for Executive Members:
We recently had the opportunity to partner with WearSPF, a sun protection brand that was created in collaboration with Justin Thomas after his personal melanoma scare in 2019. As a Florida-based company, we have a lot of experience with hot sunny days out on the course and now more than ever, we understand the impact that over-exposure to the sun can have on your skin.
We never head to the course without our WearSPF and we believe that you shouldn’t either. At Short Par 4, we believe that skin health is extremely important and we are more than thankful to be able to provide our members with the top-quality protection that WearSPF offers.
By including WearSPF lip balm and sunscreen in our Executive memberships for September, we hope to promote the importance of skin health and encourage you to stay safe while enjoying the game we all love. Be on the lookout for these products and more exciting items coming in September!
Why Sun Protection Matters:
Skin cancers are by far the most common form of cancer with more than 3.3 million people in the United States who are currently diagnosed, which means, more than likely, you know someone who has been affected.
It’s time for us to turn things around. By simply applying protection to your exposed skin before playing, you can be confident that you’ll be safe from the sun throughout your round.
WearSPF Sunscreen and Their Impact:
WearSPF offers a wide range of sunscreen options to guarantee that you’ll find your preference. Not only do they offer the traditional lotion style sunscreen, but they also have a spray option, mineral lotion, lip balm, and a sunscreen sport stick. The SPF levels are available in 30 and 50.
Not only is WearSPF educating golfers about the sun's impact on their skin, but they’re also donating a portion of every sale to the Justin Thomas Foundation. The Justin Tomas Foundation positively impacts children in need, junior golf, and military families with the intent of helping all achieve their full potential.
In 2019, Justin Thomas’ doctor found a small mole on his leg which was in the beginning stages of melanoma. Luckily, it was caught early enough and removed before it could harm him but not everyone is that lucky. This situation was the wake-up call that JT needed and the motivation behind him launching WearSPF and encouraging everyone to go get checked.
We want to take a moment to introduce you to a couple of our favorite items from the WearSPF line. If any of these fit your preferences, we encourage you to add some to your golf bag to ensure you’re always safe from the sun while you’re playing.
WearSPF Lip Balm:
The WearSPF lip balm is the best product we’ve ever experienced for keeping your lips healthy and moisturized when you’re exposed to the hot sun for extended periods of time. You may not know it but your lips are ultra-sensitive to sun exposure so it’s important to keep them healthy.
The lip balm features UVA/UVB SPF 30 which will lock the moisture in while blocking out the sun's rays. The original mint is also a nice touch that you wouldn’t typically have the pleasure of when accidentally getting other sunscreens on your lips.
You can find this lip balm on their website for the low price of $3. For more information about WearSPF lip balm, including; How to Apply, Drug Facts, Ingredients, and more click ‘Here’.
WearSPF 50 Sunscreen Spray:
The WearSPF 50 Sunscreen Spray is a broad spectrum SPF 50 sports spray for your face and body. The spray blend is infused with super-nourishing antioxidant ingredients and offers effortless protection from UVA/UVB rays. Once applied, the spray is water resistant for up to 80 minutes.
The sheer, non-greasy finish is a breath of fresh air from the sunscreens that we’ve all had experience with in the past. The design offers a continuous spray for total even coverage on all of your exposed areas. Say goodbye to greasy hands on the course and say hello to convenient, effective sun protection.
You can find this sunscreen spray on their website for only $13 along with several other options including; SPF50 lotion for $18, SPF 30 mineral lotion for $16, and the SPF 50 sport stick for only $14. Click ‘Here’ to see all of their options!
How to Apply:
WearSPF suggests that you apply their products fifteen minutes before sun exposure and reapply after 80 minutes, or after swimming, sweating, and towel drying. WearSPF products guarantee to help prevent sunburn and decrease the risk of skin cancer which is important for every golfer.
Go Get Checked!
Unfortunately, 1-5 people will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime but we can lower this statistic by having frequent checkups with a dermatologist who will be able to find these areas and prevent spreading. It’s up to all of us to stay safe and healthy so we can enjoy our time out on the course!
