Five Ways To Protect Skin In Summer
Quick tips to ensure your brood's baby soft skin stays that way
1 Time it right
Stay in the shade between 11am and 3pm when the sun’s rays are at their most powerful.
2 Remember Slip-Slop-Slap
Follow the famous Aussie rules and just Slip on a shirt, Slop on suncream and Slap on a wide-brimmed hat.
3 Aim high
Opt for a suncream that has a high sun-protection factor (SPF). Try Lavera’s organic SPF20 Baby and Child Sunspray (£18.50 for 200ml at So Organic). And remember, apply suncream even when it is cloudy.
4 Dress for comfort
Natural fibres, such as cotton, help skin to breathe and help prevent dry skin and heat rash. For UV-protected swimwear that’s also super stylish, visit Sunuva. Sunglasses are also vital to protect young eyes. Try Baby Banz.
5 Shower after swimming
Chlorine can irritate the skin, so she should hit the shower after a swim.
