Penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, causing wrinkles, moles, sunspots and skin cancers.
Can cause sunburn, chronic skin damage, precancerous lesions, and skin cancers.
When looking at the weather forecast, don’t forget to check the UV index of your region. In days with high UV (index ≥6), we should avoid intentional sun exposure between 11 am and 5 pm, especially babies and children.
Why is it so important to keep our kids sun safe ?
Children's skin is much more sensitive to sun exposure than adults’ skin, being more vulnerable to sunburn and other sun aggressions. In addition, in the first years of life, the skin contains little melanin, which is the pigment that protects the skin from UV rays, further increasing the risks associated with sun exposure.
Did you know that a severe sunburn in childhood doubles the risk of developing skin cancers in adulthood? That's why it's so important to get children used to a sun protection routine from an early age. Wearing sunscreen, clothing and a hat reduce the risk of all types of skin cancer and premature aging.
Clothing with sun protection blocks harmful UV radiation and is the most effective way to protect children.
