In the summer months, you and your family may want to spend a lot of time in a resort where there are swimming pools or beaches. Undoubtedly, your child will be delighted to splash into the water or build sand castles with you! What wholesome, happy child won’t be?
However, summer is always the hottest among all other seasons. It’s essential to apply sunscreen at all times, especially on your child. Apply an ample amount in all areas of their body, including the neck, ears, hands, legs, and shoulders.
It helps to use a sunscreen that has SPF of 30 or more to protect their skin against UVA and UVB rays since a child’s skin is very delicate and more prone to sunburn.
When your children likes to swim in the pool or at the beach, they expose themselves to chlorine or salt water. Chlorine or salt water may cause your children’s skin to become dry since they are very delicate. It’s essential that you bathe them to wash off chlorine or salt and then apply gentle moisturizer on their skin.
When choosing your children’s moisturizer, avoid using creams, lotions, and other skin-care products that you’d usually use for yourself. Those may irritate their skin and, perhaps, cause them to have an allergic reaction. Buy something that is specifically designed for children instead.
Drinking water also keeps your child’s skin hydrated during the summer months. As a childcare provider in Yorba Linda CA that values the health and well-being of children, we encourage parents to monitor how frequent your children drinks water so that they won’t suffer from dehydration and still be able to enjoy a great summer vacation.
