Sun safety is serious business, and it definitely bears repeating in the dead heat of summer when we spend a lot of time outside. Dr. Elizabeth Hale, an associate professor of dermatology at the NYU School of Medicine, recently shared some sun safety tips with Momtrends so that you and your kids stay protected this summer!

'?¢ Reapplication is key. Be sure to reapply sunscreen every two hours or after swimming, toweling off, or sweating. When on-the-go, continuous spray formulas make reapplication much easier.
'?¢ Watch out for sensitive areas. The most sun sensitive areas are often the ones commonly overlooked when applying sunscreen'??the scalp, ears, backs of hands, nose and feet.
'?¢ Keep babies under six months out of the sun. For the rest of the family, it'??s best to seek shade during peak UV hours.
'?¢ When going outside, bring sun protection for the whole family. Include sunscreen, sunglasses, brimmed hats and UV protective clothing, especially for children.
