Play it Safe in the Sun: A Guide for Parents

Kids laying in grass with sunglassesHey Mom and Dad! Not all sun protection comes in a bottle. There are other ways to protect your child's skin all year long. Here are five you should use.

  1. Hide and Seek.
    Seek shade under a tree, an umbrella or a pop-up tent to help reduce sunburn.
     
  2. Cover Up.
    Clothing that covers your child's skin helps protect against UV rays.
     
  3. Hats Are Fun.
    Hats that shade the face, scalp, ears, and neck are fun, easy to use and give great protection.
     
  4. Shades Are Cool.
    They protect your child's eyes from UV rays. Look for sunglasses that wrap around and block as close to 100% of both UVA and UVB rays as possible.
     
  5. Rub on Sunscreen.
    Use sunscreen with at least SPF 15 and UVA/UVB protection every time your child goes outside.
