What suncream is suitable for my toddler?

Your toddler’s skin is precious which is why it’s so important that it’s protected from the sun’s harmful rays. A young child’s delicate skin can easily suffer both short and long term damage from the sun in the form of sunburn and heat stroke and being sunburnt just once as a child can increase the chances of melanoma in later life. However, with Ambre Solaire Rapido SPF 30 you can be sure your little one is in safe hands.
The sun is at its strongest between 10am and 4pm so during this time so it’s also important to follow these steps:
  • Keep your child in the shade, under a tree or umbrella but remember that even a child in the shade can get sunburned.
  • Dress your toddler in lightweight, light coloured clothing ensuring to cover arms and legs. A wide brimmed floppy hat that has a flap at the back to cover the neck and a brim wide enough to shade the face and UV protective sunglasses are also essential.
  • Sunscreen should be applied about 15 to 30 minutes before going outdoors and reapplied every two hours making sure to cover all areas of exposed skin. If your toddler’s skin gets wet, sunscreen should also be immediately reapplied once towel-dried.
Garnier has revolutionised its sun protection for children with Ambre Solaire Resisto Coloured Spray SPF50+. This unique sun protection offers a coloured spray for fun and easy application making it the perfect choice to help protect your toddler against the sun.
The coloured spray allows you to see where you have applied then disappears when rubbed in, making for an easier application and also ensures that you won’t miss any of your toddler’s delicate skin. Resisto coloured spray offers very high protection using the patented Mexoryl® filtration system which provides advanced protection against UVA and UVB rays helping to protect your child’s skin against sun-induced skin damage.The moisturising formula is very water resistant, hypoallergenic and tested under dermatological control.
