Children love the summer: they can play outside in the sun and build sand castles on the beach. The sun is an indispensable source of energy and stimulates the production of vitamin D, but too much sun is not good. The skin of young children is very sensitive and can therefore burn quickly. The ultaviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can damage the skin of your child in just 15 minutes. If you were burned a lot as a child, this can even double the risk of skin cancer later in life. That is why extra protection from the sun for children is of great importance.
UV clothing is a must
best way to protect your children from the sun is a combination of sunscreen, shade and (UV) clothing. Normal summer clothing does not offer sufficient protection against the harmful UV radiation. Did you know that a dry white t-shirt only offers protection of SPF 10? And if the t-shirt gets wet, the factor even drops to SPF 3. It is therefore a fable that an ordinary t-shirt protects you from the sun. Using sunscreen is a must, but small children often don't like greasy sunscreens or have no patience for extensive lubrication sessions. And keeping your child completely out of the sun is often not feasible.
