Fun In The sun?

This weekend will you be where the weather’s warm, the sun is shining, the kids want to run around and play with the hose? (Doesn’t it feel great to get away from freezing winter?!) Don’t forget that most of us are pale from winter hibernation and are ripe for sizzling in the sun.

Here’s the pitch for today: don’t forget the sun block. I know, everybody’s talking about that right now, and they should ‘cause it’s important. We have written about the importance of using sun block before, about using one with SPF 30 and replacing it every couple of hours, etc. But this time I want to remind you while you slather on the goop to be sure to protect your children’s ears. We always get the cheeks, nose shoulders and arms, but sometimes the ears are bypassed. Wide brimmed hats are great but often get pulled off by tots, and caps will leave the ears exposed to the sun’s scorching rays. And, by the way, this goes for you, too.

If you’re pregnant, your sensitive skin might burn more easily. Read these tips and relax and enjoy the warmer weather… and don’t forget to protect your ears!
