TIPS

Young, sen­si­tive skin is sus­cep­ti­ble to the sun’s harm­ful rays so you and your child must be sun-savvy. Choose a sun­screen with a min­i­mum sun protection fac­tor (SPF) of 30 and a broad spec­trum, which means it blocks out ul­tra­vi­o­let A and B rays.

Sun­screen must be ap­plied at least 30 min­utes be­fore your child goes out­side and be reap­plied ev­ery two hours, or af­ter swim­ming or play­ing. Don’t for­get to ap­ply it to all ex­posed ar­eas, in­clud­ing the ears, hands and feet. Keep in mind that sun­screen can’t com­pletely block out the sun’s UV rays, so teach your child to wear a hat when out­side.

Just like skin­care prod­ucts, sun­screens can also ir­ri­tate a child’s skin so choose a prod­uct that’s specif­i­cally de­signed for chil­dren.
