Title: Everything you want to about sunscreen lotion for a child


1
Sunscreen Lotion for a child
  • Everything you want to know about Sunscreen
    Lotion for a child.

2
Please differentiate between Sunscreen Lotion
Winter Lotion
  • Summer sun rays are more dangerous because it
    reaches through direct with less atmospheric
    layers.
  • VS
  • Winter sun rays passes through thicker
    atmospheric layers which absorbs significant
    amount of suns radiation.

3
Understanding UVA and UAB
  • Ultraviolet A (UVA) A longer wave UV ray
    affects skin over long time period and causes
    lasting skin damage, skin aging and also can
    cause skin cancer.
  • Ultraviolet B (UVB) A shorter wave UV ray
    causes sunburns, skin damage and also responsible
    for skin cancer. UVB are useful to generate
    Vitamin D. They interact with certain elements in
    the skin to produce Vitamin D, but a few minutes
    under the midday sunshine is enough for that.

4
Understanding Sunscreen Lotion
  • Sunscreen lotion - a product made by combining
    several ingredients which prevent the suns rays
    to reaching the skin and so it stops suns
    ultraviolet radiation.

5
  • Do all sunscreen lotion have same ability to
    protect the skin from sun rays?

  • NO!
  • Then How to know the capability of sunscreen
    lotions selling in market?

6
SPF (Sun Protection Factor)
  • SPF is the measure of sunscreen lotions ability
    to protect your skin from sun rays.

  • How it works?
  • It depends on your skin as well. For example,
    suppose your skin tolerate for 15 min. in sun and
    then after start burning or start turning red.
    Then SPF 15 sunscreen lotion protects your skin
    15 times longer i.e., 1515 225 min. (around 4
    hours)
  • So if you are going to stay longer than 4 hours
    in sun shine then you have to reapply sunscreen
    lotion to protect your skin.

7
Is sunscreen good for all age babies?
  • You can start using sunscreen on a baby after 6
    months. But it is avoidable to do that because
    babys skin is much thinner, so various chemicals
    can cause rashes and skin allergies. So use
    physical barriers like umbrella, cap, full
    clothes is better option.
  • Once your child start spending time outdoor or
    play sports outside or on terrace etc., it
    becomes necessary to apply sunscreen lotions to
    protect your childs skin.
  • Apart from this, if you notice any bad effect on
    your childs skin, you should consult your doctor
    and should start using sunscreen lotions as per
    doctors advice.

5 tips to choose right sunscreen for your baby

  • 1.
  • Childrens skin is more sensitive than adults.
    So dont use generic sunscreen lotion available
    in market. Go to chemist and ask for special
    product for child. Or consult your doctor to get
    good suggestion.

9

  • 2.
  • Use sunscreen lotion with higher SPF, at least
    15. In market, sunscreen lotions are available
    with higher capacity till SPF 50. But SPF 15 or
    30 is fine for normal use.

10

  • 3.
  • Choose sunscreen lotion having ingredients of
    Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide as these both are
    safe on sensitive skin. Most zinc oxide based
    sunscreen lotions will be pasty in their texture
    and thats why they wont glide over the skin
    smoothly like commercial beauty sunscreen lotion
    would.

11

  • 4.
  • Avoid the sunscreen lotion having ingredients
    para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) and oxybenzone
    because of concern about mild hormonal properties.

12

  • 5.
  • And last but not the least, pick the colour and
    perfume free sunscreen lotion for your baby. Baby
    sunscreen lotion must be non-allergic so always
    consult experts or doctors before using it.

13
5 tips on how to use it?

  • 1.
  • Apply sunscreen lotion 15-20 min. ahead before
    your baby goes outdoors to absorb into the skin
    and take full impact to protect it.

14

  • 2.
  • Always use sunscreen lotion when your baby goes
    outdoor. Not only bright sunshine is damaging but
    it affects on cloudy days as well.

15

  • 3.
  • Avoid contact with eyes and lips to protect the
    child from licking it. Most of baby sunscreen
    lotions available in market are mild and free
    from poisonous effects but still it is always
    avoidable to get into the body.

16

  • 4.
  • Dont forget to reapply after bathing or
    swimming. If your child is sweating then apply it
    whenever he/she dry off with towel.

17

  • 5.
  • As I told earlier, sunscreen lotion must be
    non-allergic in your childs case. Always do a
    patch test when you try first time or whenever
    you change the brand or product.

18
Here are 3 extra tips

  • 1.
  • Always check with good dermatologist or Doctor to
    get an opinion related to product or brand. It is
    highly necessary to consult doctor in case of any
    kind of allergy (if it happens).

19

  • 2.
  • Over doing in any case is not good and avoidable.
    So keep check on how you are using sunscreen
    lotion. It is also good to give some sun exposure
    at regular days interval as Vitamin D is
    important for the body. Though you should also
    get you child tested for Vitamin D and in case of
    deficiency start the use supplements and proper
    food resources.

20

  • 3.
  • Sunscreen lotion only protects the skin. What
    about heatstroke, fainting, de-hydration etc.? So
    always use physic barriers such as umbrella,
    clothing, hats etc. when you are enjoying sun
    shine on beaches. If you cant take it with you
    from home, you can always rent such baby
    equipment (which is in-fact good solution to
    avoid luggage and breakage).
