Sun Safety Guide:

Discover essential tips to safeguard your child from the sun's harmful rays!

Children, especially during summer, spend ample time outdoors. Sunburn, a visible reaction to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, poses risks, especially for fair-skinned or mole-prone individuals with a family history of skin cancer.

Exposure to UV rays during daily activities, particularly from 10:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m, causes significant damage. Cloudy days don't offer full protection; up to 80% of UV rays penetrate clouds.

Follow the A, B, Cs for sunburn prevention by The American Academy of Dermatology:

Away: Avoid midday sun exposure, the most damaging period. Block: Apply SPF 30+ sunscreen 30 minutes before sun exposure and reapply frequently. For infants under 6 months, keep them out of direct sunlight. Cover-up: Utilize protective clothing with a tight weave, hats, sunglasses, and avoid direct sunlight for infants.

For clothing recommendations, ensure:

  • Ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 30 or higher.
  • Acceptable test results as per industry standards.
  • Hats with a minimum 3” brim or bill and a permanently attached drape for infants.
