This time of year you will find everyone outside soaking up the spring weather and warmer temps! Often, we are not fully prepared and just jet out to the park for a fun day. It is so easy to forget to lather the sunscreen on because you are just so happy the sun is out and you aren’t having to bundle in 16 layers of clothing. Today, we are discussing a little bit about our children’s skin and what to look for in safe sunscreens. Babies skin is much thinner than adult skin and can absorb substances much more quickly because of this. It is so important to apply sun screen on your child not only for the beach or pool, but for afternoons at the park and regular outdoor activities. It happens to frequently when coming home from the park you realize your baby has red arms, legs, and a chapped face. It is advised that babies under 6 months opt for shade, floppy hats, and clothing when in the sun. Sun damage often occurs in the early years of a person’s life. So use this time to protect your little one’s skin. Today, we are sharing organic and safe sun screen’s for your little one’s. Because their skin is so thin and it absorbs quicker, you definitely want to put safe ingredients on that precious babe of yours. When choosing a sunscreen it is important to buy sunscreen that is broad spectrum UBB/UVA protection, paraben/PABA free, and water resistant. Here is our list of a small handful of sun screens that are safe for your children.
