What Kind Of Sunscreen Is Suitable For Kids?

Generally, physical sunscreen works best on kids. Physical sunscreens are chemical-free and it is made of zinc oxide or titanium oxide. The product settles on the surface of the skin and effectively blocks harmful UV rays. When it comes to chemical sunscreens, they need to be applied at least 20 minutes before your kids go out. And if your kids are going to be out in the sun for a long time, the sunscreen needs to be re-applied after every two hours. Before using a chemical sunscreen on your kids, always do a patch test to see if they are allergic to it.

What You Should Look For In Kids’ Sunscreen

Look for a sunscreen with SPF 30 and one that says ‘broad spectrum’. Choose a water-resistant sunscreen so that it protects your kids when they are sweating or going for a swim. However, if they are going to spend a whole day on the beach or playing cricket, use a sunblock to protect them from sunburn. In case your kids have developed a bad tan or dark patches, you might like to consult a dermatologist. Choosing a good clinic is very important for this purpose.
