INTRODUCING DOCTOR MARY
It’s very important to protect children’s skin from excessive exposure to the sun as it not only causes pigment changes such as freckling, but in the long run increases the risk of developing skin cancers.
Always look for high factor (ideally SPF50) sun creams which have broad spectrum protection and a high UVA rating. Try to use products designed with children in mind as their skin may be sensitive to some ingredients found in adult products. Garnier Ambre Solaire Kids Sensitive Advanced Range is hypoallergenic.
Apply sun cream at least 20 minutes before being in the sun so it has time to work. Make it fun and relaxed for children. Look for formulations that glide on easily so it’s not difficult to rub on.
Remember that sun cream has a shelf life and if you are using a product that is out of date it may not adequately protect your skin from the sun. Always check the packaging but the majority of Garnier Ambre Solaire Kids sun creams should be replaced 12 months after opening.
Make sure children are in the shade and avoid being out when the sun is strongest, usually between 11am and 3pm.
Sun cream alone is not enough to protect children’s skin from sun damage. Ensure they also have physical protection such as T-shirts, sunglasses and wide brimmed hats; and full body swimsuits with UV-protection for those little water babies!
