Sun and your child's skin - what the experts say

The sun emits rays which penetrates through our skin. Although these rays are vital for our health, they can also have harmful effects. And children's skin is more vulnerable than adult’s skin to UV rays. It is less able to withstand the harmful effects of the sun and can take many years to recover from sunburn. Childhood is therefore a vital period as far as the sun is concerned, and parents have an important role to play in protecting their children’s skin.
