Best Sunscreens for Children

- Advertisement -

One thing that scares me is the huge number of different sunscreens available on the market nowadays, I have a hard time picking for myself – never mind picking for my children in the future!  

When it comes to selecting the best sunscreen for children, it’s essential to consider a few factors such as their age, skin type, and any potential allergies they may have. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a sunscreen for children: 

  1. Broad-spectrum protection: Look for a sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays. 
  2. SPF rating: Choose a sunscreen with a minimum SPF rating of 30 or higher. 
  3. Water-resistant: Go for a water-resistant sunscreen, especially if your child is swimming or sweating. 
  4. Physical or mineral-based: Consider a physical or mineral-based sunscreen that contains zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. These ingredients are less likely to cause skin irritation and are safer for children. 
  5. Fragrance-free: Choose a sunscreen that is fragrance-free or has a mild scent to avoid skin irritation. 
  6. Age-appropriate: Choose a sunscreen that is appropriate for your child’s age. For babies under six months, it’s best to avoid sunscreen and use protective clothing and shade instead. 

Here are some of the best sunscreens for children: 

  • Thinkbaby Safe Sunscreen SPF 50+ 
  • Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen Baby SPF 30+ 
  • Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Zinc Oxide Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 
  • Neutrogena Pure & Free Baby Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 
  • Babyganics Mineral-Based Baby Sunscreen SPF 50+ 

Remember to apply sun cream generously and frequently, especially after swimming or sweating, to ensure optimal protection for your child’s delicate skin.
