Sun Protection Guidelines for Children

Next week is "National Sun Protection Week," and we would like to share tips for protecting you and your children's skin against sunburn, skin damage and the development of skin cancer. The following tips are those presented by AboutKidsHealth:
  • - Check the current UV index forecast for your region.
  • - Reduce your child’s exposure to the sun.
  • - Plan outdoor activities early or late in the day to avoid peak sunlight hours between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the UVR levels are highest. Stay in the shade as much as possible when outside.
  • - Dress your child for sun protection.
  • - Dress your child in protective clothing to cover the upper back, arms, and legs, a hat with a wide brim, and sunglasses. Be sure to cover your child’s upper back when she is swimming.
  • - Use sunscreen to protect your child’s skin.
  • - Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen (UVA and UVB) with a sun protection factor (SPF) equal to 15 or higher. Reapply the sunscreen frequently, every one and a half hours, or more frequently if it is sunny or your child is perspiring heavily. Use a water-resistant sunscreen whenever your child is swimming.
