Direct sun radiation is a particular risk for babies’ young, delicate skin
. Where possible, you should make sure your baby is completely dressed if spending time outdoors.
Using special sun cream for babies is essential to protect them from damaging UV rays while they are still young. Do not forget that even indirect rays
can damage the skin. And it is not only children’s skin
that is still very sensitive; their eyes also
need protecting from UV light. That’s why it's important to get them a pair of sunglasses of their own, because if it's too bright for you, it's definitely too bright for them. Once they get older they'll still need protection though, read our sunscreen for kids
advice to find out what children need to avoid sun damage.
