How will you protect the children’s skin from the sun?

Summer is here, and now is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with the children at the beach or in the park in the neighborhood.
But when the infamous Israeli sun shines in the sky, it’s important to remember to protect your children’s skin from its harmful rays. Too much exposure to the sun can cause heatstroke, burning of the skin, unsightly spots, and, God forbid, diseases. In this post, we will give you easy application tips that will help you protect your children’s skin from the sun and keep them healthy throughout the summer!

Apply sunscreen to them
The first thing you do when you go out in the sun with the kids is to make sure they apply sunscreen. Choose a sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 30 SPF and apply it generously to your children, including the face, back of the neck, and legs. If you stay in the sun, be sure to reapply every two hours, or even more often if the kids are sweating or swimming in the water.

Dress them in long, airy clothes
Another way to protect your children’s skin is to dress them in long-sleeved shirts and long pants. The long clothes block the sun’s harmful UV rays and prevent them from reaching the skin. Children can also wear a hat to protect their face, head, and neck from the sun.

Stay in the shade as much as possible
If possible, try to be less exposed to the sun and stay in the shade. Even when walking down the street, sometimes one side is hit by the sun and the other side is shaded – pay attention to that. If you are going to the beach, you can bring an umbrella or a parasol with you to guarantee you a piece of shade.

Do not go out in the hot hours
At 13.00 – 16.00, the sun is at its peak and then its UV rays are strongest and most damaging to children’s skin. During these hours try to stay at home with them or at least make sure they are in the shade, and not exposed to direct sunlight.

In conclusion
If you teach and explain to your children about sun safety from a young age, they will know how to protect themselves from potential damage. Explain to them about sun damage, why it is important to apply sunscreen, and how to apply it properly. And of course, set an example for them! If you show them that you are also smart in the sun and take care of yourself, it is more likely that they will imitate you and do the same.
