It is definitely hot outside which means the sun is beaming and harmful UV rays are pouring down on you and your kids. It’s important to begin practicing sun safety with your kids at a young age because of irreversible UV damage. Not only will skin problems arise and stay, so will eyesight problems. To keep your kids safe in the sun for the remainder of the summer remember these tips:
Limit exposure: The sun’s rays at strongest between 10am and 4pm so limit direct sunlight when possible.
Wear Sunglasses: Put your child on a safe, durable pair of Real Kids Shades with 100% UVA and UVB protection to block permanent sun damage.
Use Sunscreen: Always lather your child with sunscreen SPF 30 or higher 15 to 30 minutes prior to sun exposure, then reapply every 2 hours after activity.
Seek Shade: If your child must be outside for long durations of time make sure they are in a shaded area as much as possible.
