Any Vacation, be it to the beach, the ski hill, or any where in between, should be a sun-safe Vacation.  Parents have a responsibility to teach Children to enjoy every family outing as a sun-safe experience. This helps make every holiday  a  

While Children are at the greatest risk of harm from UV radiation because their skin is thinner and more sensitive, (80% of sun exposure over a lifetime occurs before 18 years of Age) and just one or two serious sunburns as a child double the risk of skin cancer, all family members need to practice sun safety.  As parents we need to teach our children how to practice sun safety by example as well as by education.

  • Sun Safety needs to be practiced year round  - any Time outdoors, Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter is Sun Safety Time.  UV rays are more intense in higher altitudes (as when skiing) or tropical climates (that southern vacation).   UV rays can penetrate clouds.  Seeking shade does reduce the risk of direct exposure but does not protect you completely from sun damage as water, snow, sand and other factors can reflect the sun's UV rays to someone sitting in the shade.
  • Sun Safety means using all sun safe tips together for maximum protection from the Sun's harmful UV rays.
  • Babies under one year of age or anyone using medication should stay out of direct sunlight. See  Tips from the Canadian Cancer Society about Shade from the Sun, Protecting Children from the Sun and Sunscreen Use.  If you have any questions - check with your doctor.  It is recommended that sunscreen not be used on babies under six months of age. 
  • Look for strollers that have a canopy and watch babies feet are covered.   Make sure when baby is sleeping they have complete coverage from the sun.  
  • Protect or limit sun exposure between 10am and 4 pm, when the UV rays are strongest - Use and teach children to use their shadow as a guide - NO SHADOW - SEEK SHADE (as recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology).  Tips from the Canadian Cancer Society about Shade from the Sun, Protecting Children from the Sun and Sunscreen Use
  • Use the INDEX - the UV Index that is, it indicates the intensity of UV rays that will cause skin damage over a period of time to unprotected skin - 1 is the lowest level and 10 is highest.  A low index means it may take more than an hour for skin to burn, while a high level means it may take less than 15 minutes to burn.
  • Ensure children wear wide-brimmed hats (although any hat is better than none at all - baseball caps worn brim forward at  least offer some protection to the face and eyes) or a handkerchief can be tucked under the back and side of hat to cover neck and ears.
  • Clothes that are tightly woven can block out all the sun's rays and long sleeved clothing, with hoods can offer great protection.
  • Sunglasses that afford 100% UV protection (make sure that all family members have sunglasses with this on the label), will protect the eyes from the sun's constant danger to eyes.  UV rays can cause serious damage to your eyes - wear them  whenever possible outdoors.  

  • Watch for dehydration and sunstroke in children - have them drink plenty of fluids during the day.

Sunscreen is a major part of Sun Safety and the proper use of sunscreen can allow us some measure of comfort that we are reducing the risk of serious skin damage by providing some protection to our skin, while enjoying the great outdoor, IF IT IS USED CORRECTLY AND IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE SUN SAFETY TIPS.  That's why we have complied a list of considerations and tips for Sunscreen use.

  • Babies under one year of age or anyone using medication should stay out of direct sunlight.  If you have any questions - check with your doctor.  It is recommended that sunscreen not be used on babies under six months of age. 
  • Look for a broad spectrum sunscreen - for children use a 30 SPF or higher is best, that is a milky lotion.  The higher the SPF the longer the skin takes to burn.  Remember - Sunscreen does not stop sunburns, but it does protect the skin longer that if it was not covered.
  • Apply Sunscreen daily, if possible 1/2 hour before sun exposure, and reapply often, especially after swimming or exercise, even the waterproof sunscreens.  Personal note from our President - we have a family rule when we are outdoors - "Sunscreen in the morning, sunscreen after swimming, and sunscreen while playing outside, ohh we need that sunscreen, that sunscreen all the time." (we sing it to the tune of Sugar in the morning as applying sunscreen).  If sunscreen is applied at home before you go to the beach, Play can start as soon as you get there.
  • Apply sunscreen according to directions  
  • Shake well, rub it in well to make sure you get even coverage on all exposed parts of the body, especially the face and back, which receive the most sun exposure, and don't forget, ears, feet and hands and behind the knees.
  • Consider sunscreening children before they get dressed so you don't miss any edges around clothes.  
  • Avoid Contact with eyes and mouth.  If sunscreen gets in eyes, flush thoroughly with water.  If ingested, contact your local hospital emergency or doctors office or poison control centre immediately.
  • If a rash occurs, discontinue use of sunscreen immediately and consult your doctor.
  • Sunscreen's active ingredients do expire.  If your bottle is two or more years old, throw it out.  Expiration dates are usually on the bottom of the bottle.
  • Make sure Dad and Mom use sunscreen too.  Give the Kids the responsibility of reminding you - they may take it quite seriously and so they should.

Here are some tips for skin care after sun exposure:

As skin looses moisture during exposure to the sun, apply a moisturizer, which may contain Vitamin E or Aloe to skin before bed time and drink plenty of fluids during the day..

Look for and recognize the signs of skin cancer - consult your doctor immediately if you have any concerns - some signs are:

  • A skin growth that increases in size;
  • A mole or birth mark that increases in size or thickness or changes in any way including colour or outline;
  • A mole or spot that itches, hurts, bleeds or scabs;
  • A sore that does not heal, lasts for more than a month or reopens after healing up.

Although sunburns should be avoided at all costs, sometime a sunburn happens, here are some tips to lessen the hurt of the burn:

  • Run cool (not cold) water over the affected area, or a tepid bath where children can play may relieve some of the pain.  Cool compresses also help.  Don't use ice as it can put an ice burn on top of the sunburn
  • A pain reliever may help reduce the discomfort of a sunburn - Read medication instructions for usage and check with doctor if child is under two years of age.
  • Consult a physician or hospital emergency if sunburn is serious or the child is under one year of age.
  • Never pull peeled skin.
  • If there are no blisters, a creamy lotion may feel soothing.  
  • If there are blisters, keep area clean and when blisters have dried out apply lotion.
  • You may use anesthetic sprays or a mild cold cream or hydrocortisone  but read directions and consult a pharmacist or your doctor first.
  • Avoid future sunburns as damage intensifies with continued exposure.
