As a child’s skin is still young and developing, it can often be more sensitive and vulnerable to the damaging effects of the sun. When looking for a sunscreen for your child, look for a broad-spectrum SPF50+ product, as this is the highest SPF you can get. A child specific product in general will be formulated to be gentle enough for a child’s delicate skin while maintaining a high level of protection.
Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. Limit sun exposure and use protective clothing, hats and eye wear. Keep out of eyes. Reapply sunscreen regularly.
