Be sun safe. Seek shade during the sun’s strongest hours of 10AM to 4PM and cover up with broad-spectrum sunscreen, wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses with at least 99% UV protection, and lightweight clothing to protect your family’s skin from the harmful ultraviolet rays. Remember the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendation to reapply sunscreen of at least SPF 15 every two hours and look for ingredients like zinc oxide for sensitive skin.
