Summer is almost here. Make sure your kids are protected when they’re outside by following these tips from MedLine Plus.
Slip on protective clothing, like long-sleeve shirts and long pants with an adequate UV (ultraviolet radiation) protection factor.
Slap on a hat — not just a baseball cap — to protect your face, head, ears and neck. And don’t forget to protect your eyes with sunglasses.
Slop on sunscreen — and use plenty of it to cover all your exposed skin. Then reapply it every few hours and after swimming.
