Protecting Your Child’s Skin with Sunscreen
Dr. Mario Zambrano, Pediatric Emergency Medicine Physician at Homestead Hospital, says it is very challenging to put your child sunscreen in summer, because they just want to go out and play, but it is important to make it fun for them so they let you apply the sunscreen.
About the SPF number, he recommends it to be 15 or more. “The higher the SPF, the longer it lasts. Every two hours you have to get your children out of the water and reapply it,” he points out and also highlights it is good to avoid the Sun from 10 a. m. to 2 p. m., because it is the most harmful Sun.
