4 Summer Skincare Tips for Littles

4 Summer Skincare Tips for Littles

From our friends at Babo Botanicals

With summer on the horizon, we’ve got tips to help you protect your little one’s delicate skin. Here, our friends at Babo Botanicals share their essential suncare tips to ensure your little one stays safe and happy while enjoying the sun. From choosing the right sunscreen to apparel, we’ve got all the advice you need.

4 Summer Skincare Tips:

  1. Babies can start wearing sunscreen after they're 6 months old, and it is always recommended to check with your pediatrician about when your child is ready. Before 6 months it is recommended to keep newborns out of direct sunlight, and always use other protection methods to keep them covered like long sleeves, pants, hats, umbrellas or stroller canopies. 

  2. Talk to your pediatrician about the difference between mineral and chemical sunscreens, which use different types of active ingredients. Mineral sunscreen is often a preferred choice for babies because it sits on top of the skin to block UV rays, rather than absorbing into the skin like chemical sunscreens. 

  3. How much is enough? It is always better to err on the side of more than not enough when it comes to sunscreen. You can apply Babo Botanicals’ Sensitive Baby Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF50 liberally to every inch of exposed skin at least 15 minutes before going outside, and always reapply at least every two hours, or again after going swimming to maintain babies' optimal level of protection. This water resistant face & body sunscreen is created with natural origin mineral zinc oxide for effective broad spectrum SPF50 protection and 24 plant-based ingredients including nourishing shea butter. This SPF formula is one of the first-ever sunscreens to be EWG Verified® to ensure the highest level of safety and quality. You can feel good using this fragrance-free baby sunscreen on your little one. Don't forget to do the same for yourself! 

  4. What else can I do for added protection? Wide brimmed hats and UV protective clothing when in the sun are always great for additional protection. Keeping your baby hydrated is also very important in the sun and heat. Bringing a beach or pool umbrella along when you have young children with you is another useful way to stay cool and prevent overheating. Check out Babo Botanicals Sensitive Baby Mineral Sunscreen Spray SPF30 that’s easy to apply!  You and your baby will love this lightweight mineral baby mineral sunscreen non-aerosol spray!
