we find on the market a wide range of sunscreens specially designed and developed to protect babies from the sun. They are the ones we should use.
Better With Clothes
Protectors help and are effective, but the best protection and the recommendation of paediatricians is to dress children in pure cotton clothing and always cover their heads. Nor should you dress them excessively to prevent them from feeling too hot, but clothing is your best protection.
Protection Also In The Shade
It is necessary that the little ones are protected not only when they are in direct contact with the sun, but also when they are in the shade and even on cloudy days.
Beware Of Water Reflections
There are certain elements that enhance solar radiation such as water, sand and grass among others, so when the little one is close to these elements it is advisable to protect him better.
