4 Ways to Protect Your Kids from the Sun

kids in the waterAll kids love playing in the sunshine, especially if it’s around the backyard swimming pool. But spending too much time in the sun can actually be harmful and even dangerous for kids.

The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause sunburn in the short run and cause potentially serious skin problems in the long run, including skin cancer. So keeping your kids safe from the sun’s harmful UV rays — even when they are enjoying their pool time — is absolutely essential.

Here are four fast, simple and effective ways to protect your kids from the sun during pool time.

Seek Shade

The sun’s UV rays are most powerful during the middle of the day. So it’s a good idea to plan indoor activities when the sun’s rays are at their peak.

Another plan is to provide shaded areas — such as an umbrella, under a tree, or beneath a canopy — where the kids can hang out periodically to minimize the sun’s effects.

Keep Covered

Providing a barrier between your children’s skin and the sun’s UV rays is another way to counteract their harmful effects.

Have your children wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants or skirts when playing in the sun. Use a hat to protect their face, scalp, ears, and neck, areas that are especially sensitive to the sun and prone to burn.

Use Sunscreen Liberally

When it comes to keeping your kids safe, don’t scrimp on the sunscreen! Use a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) or at least 15. Reapply sunscreen every 30 minutes, especially if your kids are jumping in and out of the water.

Wear Sunglasses

Sunglasses can make anybody look stylish. But they also are important for protecting your children’ from UVA and UVB rays that can harm their eyesight later in life.

Look for sunglasses that wrap around to provide full protection.
