|Description:||Under the watchful eye of his mother, this young boy was taking a trip down a bright red slide at a neighborhood playground. Note that he was wearing a darkly-colored t-shirt, and denim shorts, which help protect his skin from the sun’s harmful rays. He was also wearing a coating of sunscreen on his sun-exposed skin (see PHIL 14062).|
The CDC recommends the use of sunscreen with a rating of at least SPF 15, along with UVA and UVB protection, every time your child goes outside. For the best protection, apply sunscreen generously 30 minutes before going outdoors. Don't forget to protect ears, noses, lips, and the tops of feet.
