Sunscreen for kids has moved into the category a long time ago, it must be, but we still don't know everything about it.
For a child, the sun is both friend and foe. Friend - because under the influence of ultraviolet radiation, vitamin D is produced, which is necessary for the formation of bones and normal functioning of the immune system. And the enemy - because prolonged exposure to the sun can lead to burns and dehydration of the skin (and these are far from the worst possible consequences). Why is that?>
Compared to adults, baby skin produces much less melanin and therefore burns faster. Due to its thin hydrolipidic barrier, it quickly loses moisture.
Skin immunity in children is formed only by the age of 12, which means that they are practically defenseless against the aggressive effects of sunlight.
Cosmetics with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) do not prevent the child from receiving their dose of vitamin D and endorphins, but at the same time protects his skin from burns and other negative effects of sun exposure. It has been proven that there is a direct relationship between the number of burns a child received in childhood and skin cancers! Therefore, it is impossible to neglect children's Sanskrins in any case.
Children's skin is different from adult skin: it is much thinner and more sensitive, so it needs more delicate protection.
Children's sunscreens should be free of fragrances, parabens and dyes. As a rule, it is for this reason that they have a much shorter shelf life than adult Sanskrins.
Children's sun creams most often have a waterproof formula (that is, they protect from the sun even in water) and additional superpowers. Among the most beneficial are soothing ingredients and sand resistance.
Finally, children's sunscreens are being developed in collaboration with pediatricians and dermatologists. Hence the hypoallergenic formula, which is absolutely safe for baby's skin!
In order for your beloved sun to be reliably protected from the sun in the sky, it is important to take a responsible approach to the choice of children's sunscreen. What parameters are important?
Most often, sunscreen cosmetics for children are produced in three formats: cream, milk and spray.
The most common and popular form of Sanskrin release. The main advantage is its thick texture, which creates an impenetrable barrier. Ideal for the care of dry and dehydrated baby skin.
The texture of the milk is airy and melting, so it spreads more easily over the skin and is absorbed faster. Does not create a sticky film!
Perhaps the most convenient form of sunscreens, which allows you to treat your baby's skin in a matter of seconds and protect it from the sun.
Degree of protection
To determine the degree of protection, it is important to take into account two factors: the color of the child's skin and the “geography” of walking in the fresh air.
SPF 15 - suitable for children with naturally dark skin, as well as for short walks around the city.
SPF 30 - you can take it with you on vacation, but use it only at a “safe” time: before 11:00 and after 16:00.
SPF 50 - High SPF is ideal for sun protection at the beach, especially when combined with a waterproof formula. Suitable even for light-skinned children.
SPF 50+ - maximum protection for the most comfortable stay without burns!
It is the filters that guard the health of children's skin. They are of two types:
Physical filters - reflect the sun's rays, like a mirror, but, unfortunately, are quickly erased, not resistant to water.
Chemical filters - absorb and neutralize ultraviolet radiation, waterproof.
The best sunscreens for babies contain both types of filters.
In addition to the required filters, the composition of the children's sunscreen may include additional components:
Vitamin E is an antioxidant.
Aloe - soothes the skin.
Oils - moisturize, prevent dehydration.
Plant extracts - have a caring effect.
Panthenol - accelerates healing.
Glycerin - moisturizes.
