Kids Sunscreen 101
Here comes the sun. It's summertime, and most children are spending the majority of their days in the great outdoors. Between summer camp and family fun, it feels like your children are constantly being exposed to those deadly rays -- like it or not. What most parents fail to realize is that there is actually an art to protecting children from the sun. Of course, the first line of defense is to always keep your child covered as much as possible. Bathing suits and cover ups that are made to block UVA rays are great options. Sunglasses and hats are also a must especially for preventing the corneas and preventing cataracts. However, there is no substitution for sunscreen. Rain or shine, your child needs sunscreen, and needs it in excess.
