Today was gorgeous with a clear blue sky and plenty of sunshine. I took a few minutes to sit outside, simply for the purpose of soaking in some all natural Vitamin D. While I’m ok with a healthy glow, I always make sure to use plenty of sunscreen with prolonged sun exposure. It’s right up there with drinking water and washing my face at night as easy steps I take to ensure my skin is looking its best. They are also small steps I can take to an overall healthier life which is exactly what UnitedHealthcare is daring people to do.
Each month, UnitedHealthcare posts “dares” in hopes of encouraging people to become more interested in their overall health. July’s dares are all summer and sun related. They include:
- Sharing a photo with various ways to protect yourself from the sun such as sunglasses, hats, and sunscreen. Snap a selfie of your favorite sunscreen or wearing your favorite hat and submit. ( I have shared the one below with UnitedHealthcare )
- Taking a quiz to learn all the best ways to keep your skin healthy. I answered a few questions myself. It’s chock full of useful tips such as how often to reapply sunscreen and which type of clothing to wear while hiking.
- Watching a skin cancer video and answering the corresponding question afterwards. The video takes to the streets to ask people where they think the most common places for men and women to get skin cancer are. Would you know the answer? There are other helpful videos on the side such as questions on moles and even information on the different types of sun rays.
When I am on vacation, or even out and about here at home I try to keep myself safe. Here I am by the pool on vacation, with a huge hat to cover my face, and of course sunscreen on every inch of my body.
I do try to make sure that I – along with my family – incorporate easy steps that improve our health. With these dares, I can learn additional ways that we can feel our best. Of course, being healthy is a reward in itself, but UnitedHealthcare gives away prizes when you complete these dares! Sharing a photo comes with a top prize of a Fastraxx 2-Awning – 10’ x 18’ Canopy. Taking the quiz could score you a $400 massage gift card. Watching the video and answering the question could add a $400 Visa gift card to your wallet! Each activity also has weekly prizes of $25 gift cards. I’m all for learning, improving my health, and having a chance to win such fun prizes. You can enter each dare daily and weekly winners are still eligible to win the grand prize.
