Sun Protection Practices for Children with Sensitive Skin

Hey there, lovely parents! We're back with another exciting and informative blog post to help keep your little ones safe and smiling under the sun. Grab a cuppa, put your feet up, and join us as we dive into a world of sun protection tips and tricks that are perfect for your child's sensitive skin.

Trust us, this is one blog post you don't want to miss, so let's get started and make sun safety a breeze for your family!

As well as applying sun cream regularly throughout the day and always after perspiring and swimming, here are some additional tips to keep your little ones safe while enjoying the sun.

It’s important to note that no SPF can provide 100% protection from UV radiation, please always guidance on instructions for use.

Sun Avoidance During Peak Hours

Sunlight is most potent from 11am to 3pm, making it sensible to restrict your child's time in the sun during these hours. Encourage indoor activities or find a shady spot outdoors for playtime. Taking this step can considerably diminish the likelihood of sunburns and other detrimental consequences of sun exposure on delicate skin.

The Role of Protective Clothing and Accessories

Dressing your child in sun-protective gear is crucial for shielding their sensitive skin. Choose wide-brimmed hats, UV-protective sunglasses, and long-sleeved attire with built-in SPF protection for your little one. These accessories offer an additional safeguard, maintaining the safety of your child's skin from the sun's damaging rays.

Hydration and Sun Protection: A Vital Connection

Keeping your child hydrated is an often-overlooked aspect of sun protection. Make sure they frequently hydrate throughout the day since dehydration can leave sensitive skin more prone to sunburn, heat stroke and other sun-induced skin concerns.

Caring for Sensitive Skin After Sun Exposure

Post-sun care is essential, especially for children with sensitive skin. Gently cleanse their skin after a day in the sun with a hydrating wash that includes ingredients such as glycerin, then lock in moisture with a skin nourishing moisturiser like Childs Farm’s organic coconut after sun. Doing so helps to nourish their delicate skin, minimising the likelihood of irritation.
