Finding the right sunscreen for children is critical because their skin is more sensitive than adults. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, just one blistering sunburn during childhood can double a person’s risk of developing melanoma later in life. This makes it crucial for parents to take sun protection seriously, especially when going outdoors.
However, chemical sunscreens penetrate the skin and contain ingredients that can cause irritation or allergic reactions. Mineral sunscreens, on the other hand, sit on top of the skin to deflect UV rays and do not get absorbed into the body, making them a safer option for children and adults with sensitive skin.
One great choice is the Biore UV Kids Pure Milk SPF50+ PA+++, which won Best Sunscreen for Kids in this year’s Best Beauty Buys. This pure mineral sunscreen provides adequate protection from harmful UV rays while being gentle on their delicate skin.
