Doctors’ Tips for Keeping Your Kids Healthy
Sunscreen Works Only When Used ProperlyWhat the doctor wants you to know: “A good amount of total lifetime sun exposure happens before age 18. Make sure you put on sunscreen ahead of time―not when you get to the beach or pool. And don’t go five hours without reapplying,” says Paul Horowitz, a pediatrician in Valencia, California. “Spray sunscreens are great for kids―the less goop, the better. But don’t spritz once, then rub the mist all over a leg or a belly, because when you spread it out, you dilute the effect. Instead, make sure you spray every nook and cranny thoroughly and leave it. And if it’s a windy day, the spray can go everywhere before it reaches your child. So go inside if you need to reapply.”
Where he slacks off: “My children don’t wash their hands before every meal, even though I know they should. And every single night after dinner, I let them have ice cream!”
