 - Keep your kids safe in the sun! How to protect your children's skin on holiday

Summer is here and holidays are just around the corner. The sun's rays are getting stronger, and while they give us a healthy tan, boost Vitamin D produdction and give us a spring in our step, we need to be careful. UVA and UVB rays can be extremely dangerous for the eyes and skin, especially for children. Did you know that between 50% and 80% of total lifetime sunlight exposure occurs during childhood?*

So before you hit the beach or even your back garden, check out our 10 golden rules of sun protection. Sunscreen is essential for children’s delicate skin, so take a look at our selection of sun cream specially developed for babies and children, to stop them burning and reduce the risk of sun damage and skin cancer in adulthood.

Make sure that your kids play safe in the sun this year.
