Sun Safety Tips
Short shadow. Seek shade! Teach children to go into the shade between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. - peak sunlight hours.

Apply a SPF 15 (or higher) sunscreen that blocks both UVB and UVA rays whenever your child spends time outdoors. This includes soccer camp, biking, picnicking and the beach. Be sure to apply sunscreen liberally and evenly to all exposed skin and reapply at least every two hours.

Fun in the sun needs to be limited.

Every child needs to cover up with wide-brimmed hats and shirts.

Sunscreen should not be used on babies less than six months old. Their ultra-sensitive skin requires they stay out of the sun entirely.

Understand that sand, water, cement and snow can reflect as much as half the sun’s rays onto your children’s skin even it they are in the shade.

No tan is a healthy tan. A tan is a sign of injured skin from the sun’s damaging rays - even if your child doesn’t burn first.
