You may be carting the kids to back to school events, but the sun is still shining. Sunscreen is an important part of our everyday life here in Florida, and I include it in our getting ready routine. I was excited to try a few products from La Roche-Posay to add to our personal care items, and I knew it was worth my while when I saw that they were a family-oriented brand.
They have products for the entire family including kids and babies. Their first sunscreen specifically made for kids in the US, Anthelios 60 Dermo-Kids, is a sunscreen that has UVA/UVB filters that provide broad spectrum 80-minute water resistant protection. It promises to be effective and safe yet gentle on a child’s sensitive skin.
We tested it out on a DIY slip n slide that we made to celebrate our last summer Sunday. Since 23% of lifetime sun exposure occurs by age 18 ( ), it is important to know that it takes just five sunburns before the age of 20 to increase the risk of melanoma by 80%. By being proactive and using sunscreen and sun safety tips, you can spread awareness for others and minimize your family’s sun exposure with the right tools.
Other La Roche-Posay products that we used included the My UV Patch which is a health technology that shows kids and adults how to measure their UV exposure and risk in real time. Just download the app to get started.
Cicaplast Baume B5, The multi-purpose balm, is a winner for me since it helps dry irritated areas of the skin and soothes and intensely moisturizes.
If you’re ready to upgrade your skincare routine, stop by CVS or order on Amazon. Visit the store locator to look for the products in an area near you.
