Sunscreen for kids

A healthy child is an active child, especially on a sunny day, play outdoors, for example in the garden, very pleasant for them as well for us to see it, but we as parents should be alert to the dangers that could befall our children. What I mean is the danger of the sun, it must be admitted, we need sunlight to make vitamin D, but when exposed to sunlight for too long was also not good.

Telling children to play outdoors only 15/30 minutes, something that is not possible, they would reject the idea, so we have to provide protection for our children, with sunscreen.

We want to give our kids the best for them, as well as in terms of protection against the sun, we will provide the best products for them. The best sunscreen for kids must meet the following requirements:

1. Do not poignant eyes of a child
 we must pay attention to sunscreen ingredients that we will give to our children, because          sunscreens are made from chemicals make eyes pains, use sunscreen that is  made from natural ingredients.

2.  water resistant
because children tend to be more active(making them more sweating), it is recommended to wear   sunblock that  water resistant and reapplied after a couple hours.

3. Sensitive skin
because children are still young, then only use a sunscreen that is intended for sensitive skin.

4.non nano

 do not use the material already shaped nano minerals, because it can be absorbed by the skin and   causes a cancer. wear sunblock the mineral material in the form of micro particles.

5.Vitamin E
Vitamin E is needed to counteract the side effects of sunscreen on our skin.

6.Vitamin D
Sunscreen blocks the sun's rays onto our body so that our body can not produce vitamin D, we need to know vitamin D is important for preventing cancer and improving our immune to the disease, and how we get vitamin D is best is through sunlight, then we need to sunbathe 20 minutes every 2 days. should sunbathe before 10 am.

Only sunblock that is made from natural ingredients that are safe to use by your kids. use sunscreen made from pure zinc oxide.

Broad spectrum sunscreen

UVA is the UV wavelength 320-400 nm
Just a little UVA in the filter by ozone, mostly down to the surface of the earth, UVA is also able to penetrate the glass, and in humans the UVA rays penetrate deep into the skin (collagen)

UVB is UV with a wavelength of 280-320 nm
Most UVB filtered / absorbed by ozone, UVB has an effect on the outer skin of humans.

According to NASA research scientist (Paul A. Newman), the Earth's ozone levels between 2000 to 2013 increased by 4%.

Sun Protection Factor (SPF) measures a sunscreen’s ability to filter UVB rays.
 UVA / UVB rays are the cause of skin cancer, so we need a sunscreen that can protect us from these two aspects that are harmful to our skin.

Broad spectrum is the ability to protect against UVA and UVB. Sunscreen that has the label "broad spectrum" that is worth buying.
 Uses an SPF minimum 15 (higher better) sunscreen with the active ingredient zinc oxide, a natural ingredient that physically—instead of chemically—blocks rays. Another benefit using natural ingredient is it working instantly after you applied to your skin, the chemical ingredient need 15/20 minute to work because it need to absorb by skin. If you do not like a natural sunscreen because of performance problems, then you can use natural tinted sunscreen. Zinc oxide protects against both UVA and UVB rays.

Holiday but don't forget sunscreen

Vacation to a tropical country so much fun, we have to prepare ourselves
in order not to get into trouble, especially our skin.
Because sunlight there is much more intensive than your place.

What I mean is a sunscreen, choose one that has a water resistance and
a minimum SPF 15 (higher is better).
Because the climate is hot makes us sweat more so we need a product
that high resistance to water. Apply sunscreen to your body 20-30 minutes
before you go outdoors activities, and repeat again after 2 hours.

You have to find info where to buy it in that country, if not available then
you have to bring it from your country.

With good preparation, you will enjoy the holidays and avoid skin cancer .

Have a good vacation.
