Is your child playing sun-safe this summer?

As parents, you have the important responsibility of protecting your children, always. Although it may seem daunting to properly shield your precious, active children, it’s important to know that regardless of sunny days, playground fun, or your child’s skin tone, children’s delicate skin is still susceptible to the damaging effects of the sun. To prevent and protect your loved ones, follow our steps to ensure a sun-safe summer.

Sun protection should be used 365 days a year to prevent sunspots, blemishes, dangerous freckles and even skin cancer. That’s why it’s important to apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before going outdoors and reapply every 90 minutes, especially if you're swimming or perspiring.

Numbers matter, and wearing a high SPF will help prevent harmful UV rays and maximize your time in the sun. But don’t forget! Complete, even coverage, especially in easily overlooked areas like the ears, knees and feet, is crucial to full, lasting protection. Protection that will help them even when the sun isn't shining, as up to 80% of rays can pass through cloud coverage.

Healing itchy, sensitive and irritated skin is hard, especially when it comes to children. That’s why we believe that prevention is better than curing hard to soothe skin on a child that won’t sit still. Choose protective clothing that will add a layer of safety, alongside glasses and hats that keep active children guarded from the strong rays of a summer sun. By helping your sunscreen with additional layers, you’ll worry less and your child can enjoy the summer stress, and burn-free. We recommend using the full range of SunZone Products including sun protection and soothing after sun products designed to protect the whole family against harmful UVA/UVB rays.
