Sun?s out and it is shining brightly. Along with the warm weather and outdoor adventures, summer can also be troublesome at times. The harmful rays of the sun especially affect kids since they?re so active, so it?s important to take special precautions. Here are five ways to keep your kids healthy this summer:
1. Block the sun with the right sunblock
Sunblock is essential. It protects your skin against the harmful UVA and UVB rays. Sunscreen with? SPF 30 is perfectly sufficient as long as it?s reapplied every two hours.
2. Good pool habits
Swimming and staying near the pool during summers is much liked by children. You should make sure that kids as old as 8 should be within arm?s reach any time they?re in the pool.
3. Prevent and treat mosquito bites
There are several things you can do to limit mosquito bites. You can always prefer chemical-free alternatives; citronella, lemongrass, and eucalyptus oils can be effective
4. Stay hydrated in hot weather.
Drinking enough fluids is especially crucial while running around in hot weather. Water?s the best choice, but milk, as well as limited amounts of juice, can also be hydrating.
With these tips in mind, you and your kids should have a happy and healthy summer full of fun.
