5 ways to beat the rays ☀ natural sun protection
Follow our sun care tips, then see our grab and go sun guide of our favorite all natural sun protection items, below.
1 • Keep a sun block stick in your purse for spur of the moment stops at the park, for a picnic or play. The handy sticks are portable, and small enough to pack in your pocket, diaper bag, or picnic bag—leaving no excuse not to have one with you. Opt for mineral, non-nano, zinc-based formulas. Avoid stick or cream sunscreens with chemical-sunblock ingredients like Octinoxate and Octisalate. Many natural and organic sunscreens contain these chemical blockers as active ingredients in their products; so, read labels.
2 • Wide brimmed sun hats offer excellent protection for the child’s face, scalp, ears, and beautiful smile!
3 • Watch the clock. Enjoy rays on the beach or in the water; then, switch to some indoor fun.
4 • Rash guards (swim shirts) protect the shoulders and upper arms from the sun, while offering a lightweight, easy-to-swim-in protection that will not wash off in the water like sunblocks eventually do. You can find cute rash guards at SwimZip. Celebrities put their kids in them – like Jessica Alba, Tori Spelling, and Jennifer Garner!
5 • Generously apply zinc sunscreen cream (and, reapply every two hours), to the remaining exposed areas of the body. Remember ears and the tops of feet too. We love swim shirts like SwimZip because you have to apply less sun screen.
