Protecting our children and ourselves from the sun should be a priority. One of the best ways to instill the importance of sun protection in our children is to not just model appropriate skin protection, but to teach them about it. Skinfo Skincare has created this info-graph to help show children proper ways to protect themselves from the sun. It’s simple, yet full of information. Share this article Skinfo Skincare has created and the infograph at the bottom of the page with your children. Encourage your children to be Superheroes and “Save Their Skin”!
It’s finally getting warmer outside! Soon our children will be cured of their cabin fever and will be able to run and play outside. You can’t keep them safe from every danger out there, but you can protect them from the sun. It’s important to keep your skin safe outside. Even if it is cloudy it can still cause you to get a sunburn. This is especially important for young children. They play and sweat outdoors all day, keeping them protected isn’t easy. They may get scrapes and bruises but sunscreen is one shield you can keep on them when they go out to have fun.
There are a couple main categories for sun protection. Wear protective clothing like hats and sunglasses can help keep your skin covered in the sunlight. Playing in the shade occasionally is a good way to keep some of the rays off you as well. There are a few ways to maximize your protection from sunscreen as well. Applying sunscreen 30 minutes before playing outside can make sure it is set in the skin well. Every three hours is also a good timeframe for reapplying lotion as well. It can rub off or wear off even if it says all day or waterproof. Don’t be afraid to put it everywhere! Even if you think you have the spots covered you don’t want to have burns around your clothes when they move around slightly during activities.
Skinfo Skincare has produced this great resource to show kids about sunscreen and how to stay protected while playing out in the sun.

Very timely post! My son just learned that lesson the hard way…that sunburns are more trouble than putting on a shirt or sunscreen!

My whole family is sensitive to the sun. And to top it off, we have melanoma on both sides of the family. So I am very good about putting on sunscreen, but it’s a great reminder of the importance of taking care of your skin for my girls.
