Summer Sun Protection Tips for You and Your Kids

|From 1973 to 2001 melanoma cases in children increased by almost 3% every year. It’s still rare in children under 10-years-old (a rate of one in a million) but the increasing rate does suggest that we need to be taking batter care when it comes to sun protection. One tip that I didn’t realize is that a white T-shirt isn’t all that protective—it has an SPF rating of only about 7 and when its wet its even worse, about SPF 3. The easiest way to gauge a fabric’s sun protection is to hold it up to the light, and if you can see through it, then harmful UV rays can penetrate it. In other words, sunscreen should be applied underneath clothes as well. |
This quiz provides some other helpful information regarding sun protection. Most of the information comes from the June 2007 issue of Parenting magazine. And stay tuned for my next quiz…it’ll be about the best places to go for nude bathing.
