Share this article with other mums

In sunny Singapore, any prolong outdoor activities with kids requires one essential item - Sunscreen. Read to find out what you should be looking out for when choosing one for your kids!

Sunscreen protects the skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Being near the equator, it would mean that we get a huge dose of sunshine on a daily basis. As such, it is necessary to apply sunscreen to shield from harmful UV rays.  Given our weekly escapades around town and beyond, it is necessary to pack a bottle of sunscreen with us to protect the kids from the sun. Getting 'Chao Ta' after a day out is no joke and not to mention painful for any kid who gets sun burn.

Before finding the ‘right’ sunscreen, Big C and Little Lou had complained about sunscreens that are either too sticky, too smelly or make them itchy. At times, we know the sunscreen is not effective especially when they look like cooked lobsters at the end of the day. It also means that painful days with peel skin are almost a certainty in the days ahead. Thus convincing them to put on sunscreen has always been a challenge due to past negative experiences.


Searching for the appropriate sunscreen to use had been a trial and error affair for them, so how do we choose the right’’ sunscreen to use?

Upon extensive research (i.e. Google), we reckoned that these are the essential items we need in a good sunscreen.
