The Best Kid-Friendly Sunscreensby Angeline Vu
So, you know how to protect your skin but how about your child’s?
It doesn’t matter where you’re heading or how young or old you are. It is recommended that people of all ages apply sunscreen on a daily basis to protect against harmful sun rays. So before your child leaves for school or to go on a play date, don’t let them out of the house without sun screen!
Here are the best kid-friendly sunscreens:
Dr. Robin’s Sunscreen for Children is all-natural, chemical-free, and fragrance-free. Plus, it’s recommended by a pediatric dermatologist.
Neutrogena Pure and Free Baby Sunblock Lotion SPF 60 works great for kids planning on taking a dip in the pool. It’s waterproof and it has zing oxide and titanium dioxide blocking little kiddies from UVA and UVB rays!
For kids with dry skin, try Eucerin Everyday Protection Face Lotion SPF 30. It moisturizes while also protecting against sun rays.
For the most part, adult sunscreens also work for kids. While there are kid-friendly sunscreens, it is completely okay to use the same sunscreen for everyone in the family!
Consumer Reports Health tested 12 different sunscreen products and these were ranked as the top 4:
Up and Up Sport Continuous SPF 30, by Target. All you have to do is spray it on. It runs for about $0.88 per ounce.
Walgreens Sport Continuous SPF 50. Again, it’s as simple as just spraying it on. It runs for $1.33 per ounce.
Banana Boat Sport Performance Continuous SPF 30. Also a spray! It’s $1.60 per ounce
Last but not least, Aveeno Continuous Protection SPF 50. You guessed it…it’s a spray! It is $2 per ounce.
They are all very cost effective and more importantly, they all protect against UVA and UVB rays.
The sun may be blazing this summer but your children will surely be well protected using this guide!
