Warm sunny days are wonderful. It’s good for children to spend time playing outdoors. Please remember to protect their skin from the sun. Sunscreen is your number one defense from the sun. All sunscreen wears off so remember to reapply sunscreen every two hours.
Make sure it is SPF 30 or higher. For children, lotions and sunscreen sticks offer the best coverage. Make sure the label on the bottle says “broad spectrum with UVA and UVB protection.” Children should wear a wide brimmed hat, sunglasses and comfortable UV protective clothing.
It’s best to keep infants 6 months of age and younger out of direct sunlight. Keep them in the shade, under a tree or use an umbrella. Help children enjoy safe summer fun by protecting their skin.
