Our kids’ suncare is very important. Babies’ and kids’ skin needs special care as it is thinner and its defensive system hasn’t developed enough. Scientists warn us that recurrent sun burns, caused at a young age, increase the chances of problems appearing in the future. They cause damage on kids’ skin, which seems to be healed temporarily, but the damage only accumulates, increasing the danger.

Why do kids and babies need special care?
Our responsibility to our children multiplies because photoaging, which occurs in the passing of time, starts when the kid’s skin gets in contact with UVA and UVB radiation for the first time, and it acts cumulatively, all year round, for as long as the kid is exposed to the sun’s radiation.

The redness caused by the sun on the kid’s sensitive skin isn’t instantly obvious. Unfortunately when we realize it it’s too late.

Thus, it’s important to choose effective suncare products for or babies and kids. The APIVITA SUNCARE range for kids is specially designed to offer exceptional sunscreen protection, mitigation, hydration and antioxidant protection to kids’ sensitive skin.

The range includes two suncare products for kids with highly natural composition which offer protection from sun exposure. You can choose the Eco-Bio Face & Body Milk SPF30 with calendula & pomegranate. It is a certified organic suncare product with 100% natural ingredients that contains only natural filters. The safest solution especially for babies, for high protection, hydration and mitigation. For extra high protection and hydration you can choose the Face & Body Milk for Kids SPF50 with apricot & calendula, with 78% natural ingredients. It is specially designed for kids and protects the skin with apricot and vitamin E.

But apart from the appropriate suncare product, it is also very important to know how to use it. 

How to use kids’ suncare products
It is important to follow the instructions of use in order to achieve the best protection possible.

For maximum results we have to apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before the child’s exposure to the sun. We have to be careful with the application and include all the parts of the body exposed to the sun, paying extra attention to the face and ears. We have to reapply the suncare product every 30 minutes.

How to protect kids and babies from the sun
• Children must not be exposed to the sun for a long period of time, all year round.
• We should prefer visiting the beach before 12:00pm and after 16:00pm.

• Even when we go to the park, the stroller must be equipped with an umbrella.
• We should choose light colored clothes which cover most of the body.
• We should remind them to always wear sunglasses and a hat.
• They should use sunscreen all year long.
