HOW TO MAKE APPLYING SUNSCREEN A BREEZE
Nothing beats days spent in the sun. The family all together. The kid splashing in the water. The hubby relaxing. Even the dogs are happily chilling out.
And then there’s you, yelling at your children to PUT ON THEIR BLOODY HATS and chasing them down the beach trying to reapply their sunscreen.
Yes. Summer is coming. And so is the essential need to keep their skin safe, even if it means constantly reminding them about sun safety. Reduce the risk of melanoma and sunburns with these tips to getting sunscreen on your kids:
Apply in the car – This gives the sunscreen time to work. Plus, it’s a lot easier to do when they are strapped in! You’ll still need to fill in the gaps and spots you couldn’t reach, but it’s a good start.
Make it a family affair – Lather up together. If mummy does it, then it can’t be that bad, right?
Set a timer – If you’re out in the sun all day, set a timer to go off so you know when to reapply.
Consider spray – A bit more expensive, but a lot easier to use, especially when the kids are keen to run off.
Try SPOTMYUV stickers – Stick one on your child’s skin. The detection sticker turns purple when the skin isn’t protected, letting you know it’s time to reapply!
