Sun protection is important all year round, not just during high temperature months.  UV rays reach you on cloudy and hazy days, as well as bright and sunny days.  UV rays will also reflect off any surface like water, cement, sand, and snow so sun protection at any time is a good idea. (Center for Disease Control and Prevention)

 

 

 

If your child does not have sun protection from these UV rays, you may be damaging their skin and eye sight.  One blistering sunburn before the age of 20 can double the risk for developing skin cancer later (Skin Cancer Foundation, 2000a,b,c,d).  In addition, children's eyes do not have the same sun protection ability as adults to protect from UV radiation.

 

 

Protect your child from harmful UV rays in the bright sun or in the shade with bebe soleil, the sun protection shade.
