Protecting young ones from the sun is so important as they are so vulnerable to the sun and the damage it can do. A fact which is not as widely known as it should be is that getting sun burnt in younger years can drastically increase the risk of skin cancer later in life. Hence, sun protection for our young ones is an absolute must.
Keeping children safe from the sun is not that hard to do provided you have got the right tools at hand. Sunscreen and sun protection clothing (including a hat!) are an absolute must if they are playing outdoors.
Instilling this important knowledge early in life can help educate them on protecting themselves as they get older. A really good habit to have!
