Question (1/5)

Sun protection products can expose young children to the sun after 16 hours?

That's right. It's wrong.


No ! The golden rule is never to expose a baby and a toddler under the age of 3 to the sun directly. Children's skin is even more sensitive to sun damage. Exposures and sunburns repeatedly in childhood increase the risk of cancer in adulthood.
By cons the recommendation to avoid the sunniest hours (between 12 and 16 hours) is valid for children from 3 years old as for adults.
