Hey Bettys! Having fun in the summer sun? In the spirit of staying safe and protected whilst frolicking at the beach, flirting at rooftop parties, dazzling fellow guests at bbq’s and all those fun summer activities, we’re giving away a year’s supply of Tampax plus a white-hot bathing suit cover-up.

We also checked in with Dr. Jennifer Wider, a renowned women’s health expert, and asked for her top 5 summer protection tips. Here are Dr. Wider’s tips … and read on for how to enter to win the giveaway!

Dr. Wider’s top 5 summer protection tips:

1. Skin
Fewer than one in three young adults takes proper precautions when baking in the sun. Protect yourself by using sunscreen with a 15 or higher SPF, and reapply every two hours. If you’re eager to get color, avoid tanning booths and use self-tanning lotions that contain DHA. Those lotions have a thumbs-up from the American Academy of Dermatology.

2. Eyes
Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes, and look for lenses that block both UVA and UVB rays. It’s not just about which pair looks the most fashionable!

3. Body
It’s easy to get swept up in the many summer BBQs and over eat. Try to focus on grilled chicken, fruits and vegetables instead of burgers and hot dogs. If you end up giving into temptation, the good news is that you can do several things to protect your stomach and help alleviate heartburn and reflux. Make sure to eat several hours before going to sleep and use a pillow to elevate your head. Also avoid alcohol and cigarettes, especially after a large meal.

4. Summery White Pants
Now that it’s socially acceptable to bust out the white pants, it’s important to keep them clean and free from embarrassing moments! Be sure to keep feminine protection like Tampax and Always handy, ensuring you’re always ready for whatever summer throws your way.

5. Friends
Summer protection is also about looking out for girlfriends. Be it on vacation or at parties, make sure that everyone is making smart decisions and playing it safe.

We especially love the “friends” tip — it’s SO important to watch each other’s backs, at any time of year!

    This summer, I’ve returned to that old practice of making sun tea. It’s hot as Hades outside, so why not put the sun to good use. It doesn’t take long to brew a container of the best tea. This has become one of my favorite things to do this summer. Doesn’t take much to make me happy!
