Sun protection should be at the forefront of your mind. Whether you’re at home in the UK or abroad, you should always be considering whether you and your family are taking the right precautions in the sunshine. Many reserve sunscreen for the holidays explains Childs Farm’s consultant dermatologist Dr Jennifer Crawley, but with the UK weather hotting up, we need to be keeping sun lotion topped up when outdoors at home too.
“Any sunburn on children’s skin is worrying, no matter what skin type they have, because young skin is much thinner than an adult’s, making it far more susceptible to damage,” says Dr Crawley.
Sunburn in childhood dramatically increases the chance of skin cancer in later life; it really is imperative that parents take the right steps to protect their little ones when they are outdoors.
In order to keep your children protected and allow them to enjoy the sunshine safely, always follow this advice:
Protecting sensitive skin is at the centre of Childs Farm’s research, but their products can be used on all skin types. The sensitive aspect promises that the formula will be gentle on your child’s skin. Their latest addition to the range is sun cream, available in roll-on or spray. The creams are unscented and use organic filters to block damaging UVA and UVB rays.
You can buy the sun cream or spray for £12, while the roll-on (easy for the kids to apply themselves!) is available for £10.
You can also pick them up in your local Boots or Waitrose, or shop the range on Amazon and Ocado.
