Sea Holidays: how to protect your children’s skin from the sun
Sea Holidays. Wish to dive, to relax, to play open air games and above all to get a tan, wich enhance our healty appearance! But are we sure to protect our children in the right way?
In summer, in fact, here we are again with a delicate issue for mothers with children: how to protect their children’s skin from sunbeams. This is certainly a problem wich interests all, also the adult ones. But children are without any doubt more exposed to sunbeams: their skin is more delicate because it produces less melanin than the adult’s one, that’s why it needs a greater protection and attention.
Now let’s clear up a thing: the sun is good for children. Sunbeams increase the production of vitamin D, stimulating the metabolism and strengthing the immune system. That’s why you don’t have to avoid the sun, but simply have to avoid that it becomes harmful.
Here, then, some simple rules to follow when you spend a sunny day with your children at the beach, rather than at the park.
Breast-fed and little children till the first year of life have to be protected from the sun in the best possible way. Better to carry them at the beach soon in the morning or at the sunset.
It’s also necessary to choose a solar cream with the right protecting filter. You can find several brands with different protection factors (SPF) in commerce. With children, above all the most little ones, that’s better to use SPF 30 and 50 creams.
