The sun is back
28. 05. 2024


It’s hot, the sun is shining, days are getting longer : summer is just around the corner ! It’s the perfect time for the whole family to go outside, enjoy the fresh air, relax and have fun in the sun.

It cannot be stressed enough, the sun is great but it’s dangerous for the skin, especially children’s. We have compiled a recap of the cautions you will need to protect your children’s skin.


How to protect baby from the sun ?

Before 3 years old, it’s preferable to keep baby in the shade with a cotton hat, sunglasses and light-colored clothes making sure that his head, his back and chest are in the shadow. And don’t forget to protect his skin even under the parasol !

For older ones, it’s not because they are more robust that their skin does not have to be protected. Indeed, sunscreen is essential as well as to wear a hat or a cap and prefer light-colored clothes that will reflect UV rays. There is now a large offer of elegant anti-UV clothes and swimsuits that are perfect for sunny days at the beach.

Obviously, it’s also preferable to limit outdoor activities between 12 pm and 4 pm, this is when the UV rays are the most harmful. Instead prefer outdoor activities in the morning or later in the afternoon.


How to find the adapted sunscreen ?

The sunscreen that you choose for your children has to be perfectly adapted to their delicate skin, so to make it easier for you, here are 3 criteria to keep in mind:

1. The sunscreen should be “large spectrum” meaning it protects against both UVA and UVB rays.

2. Prefer a cream application rather than an aerosol.

3.It should have at least SPF50 which filters 98% of UV rays.

For optimal effectiveness, sunscreen should be applied in thick layers regularly.

Other tips for parents: Your children will be more receptive if they see mom and dad doing the same thing, so protect yourself from the sun !


How to optimize your children’s skin comfort after a day in the sun ?

After a day playing at the beach or strolling around outside, it’s shower time !
