While some skin types are less likely to be affected by the sun, appropriate sun care for sensitive skin is crucial.
With the right sun care and protective measures, children and adults with sensitive skin can certainly enjoy the sun.
People of all ages can have sensitive skin, including:
● People with very fair skin
● People with acne or neurodermatitis
Skin can become stressed by the medication sometimes taken for these conditions and will usually react extremely sensitively to sunlight
A good sunscreen for sensitive skin should be broad spectrum and protect equally against UVA and UVB radiation.
If you have sensitive skin, you should also use sunscreen with at least SPF 30 – or even better, SPF 50+ protection – like NIVEA’s Ultra Beach Sunscreen Spray SPF50+.
For children, a sunscreen with SPF 50+ is essential. NIVEA’s Kids Swim & Play Sun Protection Lotion SPF 50+ is formulated especially for children's delicate skin and provides four-hour water resistance.
Remember to apply sunscreen for sensitive skin 15-20 minutes before heading outdoors and reapply every two hours.
Follow these three simple tips on providing the most effective sun protection for sensitive skin:
2. Avoid singlet tops – wear tops that cover your whole upper body instead. Thickly woven fabrics offer the best protection, and special pieces of clothing with UV protection, like rashies and wetsuits, are extremely practical.
3. Slap on a hat and sunglasses – to protect your face and your eyes from sun damage. Your hat should ideally have a wide brim and neck protection, and sunglasses should have UV protection.
Always read the label. Use only as directed.
