Summer is, without a doubt, one of the most fun times of the year! With trips to the beach, pool days, and exciting vacations, there’s always an outdoor adventure on the horizon.
We have been loving late afternoons spent in our backyard. The boys enjoy running through our sprinklers, splashing in the pool, or just being outside in general.
Keeping kids safe and protected from the sun is most certainly a priority, especially here in South Florida! In a few simple steps, your little ones can be perfectly prepared for sunny days.
Sun Safety for Kids
1. Planning ahead is key to make time spent outdoors a success. Before leaving home, think ahead about how long you’ll be out in the sun, whether you’re out playing at the park, on a bike ride, or swimming in the pool.
2. Apply 1 ounce of sunscreen approximately 30 minutes before you’ll be out in the sun. Take into consideration how many times you’ll need to reapply sunscreen. Generally it’s every 2 hours, but reapply more often if you or your children have been in the water.
3. Dress kids in protective clothing – hats, sunglasses, and sun protective shirts will all help to protect against the harmful rays of the sun.
4. Seek out shade whenever possible and avoid direct sun exposure for long periods of time.
5. Use a sunscreen that has “broad spectrum” protection, like Banana Boat® that protects against both UVA & UVB rays. Banana Boat® sun care products are tested in seven conditions – sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and extreme heat. What ever sun scene you and your family choose, Banana Boat® has you covered!
