It is known to you that too much of sunrays are bad for you. During summers when the sunrays are very harsh taking proper precaution while stepping out of the house becomes unavoidable. The ultra violet radiations UVA, UVB and UVC are very harmful of the skin. The skin can easily get burned if you will not protect your skin from coming in direct contact with these radiations. Suncare can be taken by covering your head with the help of scarf or by carrying an umbrella. Apart from this you should also apply sunscreen lotions all over your body, mainly to the ski that is open to direct sunlight.
You can take Suncare also by drinking plenty of fluids during summer. But what about young children, what care their parents should take during extreme sun. Suncare is equally important for young kids also as there skin is much more delicate than ours. Babies and young kids skin is considered as sensitive skin and even exposure to sunrays for some time can cause skin related issues. That is the reason why your doctor will advise you to keep your newborn baby away from exposure to sunlight till the time they don't become six months old.
Once your baby is more than six months old, make sure that he or she gets proper protection from sun while going out in sun. Make sure that you put a sun hat on your baby so that it will avoid the sunlight falling directly on their head and face. Buy those sun hats, which can be tied under their chins, as babies have the habit of removing their hats. Sunrays can pass through clothes also hence be sure to apply organic sunscreen lotion on your babies body, which will protect them from UVA and UVB radiation. For proper Suncare, you should apply these sun lotions at least 30 minutes before going out of the house.
When your kids become enough big to go out of the house on their own and play in the surrounding area, you will need to take their proper Suncare to be sure that they are not getting overexposed to the sunrays. If your kids are playing some water games in a pool, you will need to reapply the sun lotions regularly. Their clothes should be light and of cotton material so that the sweat gets soaked properly. You can even ask your kids to not go out of the house when the sunrays are very harsh. You can promise them an outing in the evening if they listen to you.
Remember these points that are must for proper Suncare for your babies –
- Babies below the age of 6 months should not be taken out when the sunrays are very harsh.
- Applying sunscreen lotions and creams is a must.
- Buy a good quality sun hat for your babies and ask them not to remove it when they are out in sun.
- In the noontime make the kids sit at home, play indoor games with them.
- Apply the sunscreen creams before 30 minutes so that the creams get time to form protective layer against the sun.
