Last week, the newspapers were highlighting how “Sunscreen alone is not enough against skin cancer”.

The Nature magazine published an article, were British scientists discovered that the use of SPF50 sunscreen is not enough to prevent skin cancer, because the UV radiation is too high and in the long term this can cause skin cancer. According to the scientist, sun cream does help against sunburn.

How to have a healthy skin

❤ Always wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from UV radiation and don’t forget your chic hat

Sun safety for kids

❤ Keep babies out of the sun and always cover them with a blanket and hat!

❤ Children have a different skin structure than an adult, so they really need a “child-friendly” sunscreen that is suitable for them

Sun safety for kids

❤ Children up to 3 years old, have a very delicate skin so it is wise to let them wear loose clothing, and when they are playing put on a hat or cap to protect their head against a possible burn

❤ Children from the age of 3 should use a sunscreen even on cloudy days when they cycle to school. We recommend that when children are on the beach during peak sun hours, to let them wear clothing

Caution: many sunscreens are not yet suitable for children under the age of 3 years old, always ask an advisor where you buy the product.

  1. You mention the healthy benefits of sun – vitamin D, feeling good, and so many more! Try using a SunFriend UV monitor to make sure you get some healthy sun before you cover up or put on sun blocks. Sunscreen blocks all the healthy UVB from making Vitamin D from sunshine.
