Summer Season = Vacation Season
School's out and the favorite season of our kids has come - summer! I'm sure every little kid you have is excited for whatever summer activities you have in-stored for them. Even my 2year-old, Leia, has been telling me "Let's go to the beach!"
Summer is the time when we get to experience the hottest and the longest of days, so we always ensure to make the most out of it. And one of our kid's favorite things to do during the season is to be out playing under the sun, which is actually a good thing though needs extra caution. Involving our kids in physical activities is actually beneficial for their health, it also helps them develop their movement skills and deviates their time and attention away from gadgets.
So, before our kids enjoy their time under the summer sun, make sure you have them covered. One of Leia's favorite play activities will have to be swimming and running and dancing and jumping, basically all things that involve movement! Yes, I have a very active girl, a total opposite of myself when i was little. Sharing with you as follows some of our favorite products fit for the season. I also tagged it as Must-Haves This Summer, which you can look further into, they'll be perfect for your kids too!
1. Mustela Very High Protection Sun Lotion
Protect your child from the sun's harmful rays. Do not let your child go exposed under the sun specially during 10am to 3pm, but when it is unavoidable, let them wear protective clothing and apply sunscreen lotion.
We love this one from Mustela, because it's safe to use even for small babies with sensitive skin and it's got very high protection SPF50+ UVB UVA and very water resistant. It's also easy to apply because of the spray-type tube. I also use it for myself.
