Safety



Repeated unprotected exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can cause skin damage, eye damage, immune systems suppression and cancer. With the right precautions, you can greatly reduce your child’s chance of developing skin cancer.

Most kids rack up a lot of their lifetime sun exposure before the age of 18, so it’s important that parents teach their children how to enjoy the sun safely.

When planning a day at the beach there is many ways to stay sun aware. Apply sunscreen with a protection factor of 30 before and during exposure. Wear wide brimmed hats and UV sunglasses to keep sun of face and eyes.

80% of a person’s lifetime sun exposure is acquired before the age of 18. Avoid direct sun exposure as much as possible during peak UV radiation between 10am and 3pm.
