Because their skin is finer than ours, children are especially vulnerable to UV rays. What is the best way to protect them?
Anthelios Dermo-Pediatrics: especially for children
A range of sunscreens for children's sensitive skin, Anthelios Dermo-Pediatrics offers five different formats, including a new 40 ml pocket format, easy to slip into a bag for outdoor activities. This formulation is highly water-resistant, fragrance-free, paraben-free and tested under dermatological control for use by children. Its smooth texture is easy to apply and offers a high protection factor without compromise in terms of tolerance.
Prevention begins at an early age
Help your children to understand the sun and know how to protect themselves. Use the "the adventures of Helios & Helia at the beach!" to teach your children from the youngest age about the four golden rules of sun protection.
Education in sun protection: secrets to well-protected skin
Teaching our young ones about the dangers of the sun is vital. For example you can teach them:
- avoid the midday sun
Between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. UV rays are at their most dangerous. Show children how to read their shadow: when it is smaller than them, this is the time to avoid the sun.
- take precautions in all situations
It's not just at the beach that children are exposed to intense sunlight, but also at parks and during outdoor activities: they must always use maximum protection.
- reapply frequently
A high protection factor does not give unlimited protection. To maintain effective protection, sunscreen must be reapplied generously every two hours and after swimming.
Clothing: the best protection
When on vacation, a third of children spend an average of 15 hours a week in a bathing suit: it's too much! Hats, sunglasses and dark-colored clothing are the best defense against UV rays.
