Even before March has started, the temperature has soared high here in the Philippines. And besides the fact that March is the "Fire Prevention Month", it is also the start of summer. My toddler Roey's very active and perspires a lot too.
Summer doesn't only means hot temperature, it also brings forth harmful UV rays. The UV Rays of course is harmful to our skin and especially to the kids. Since skin diseases are very much common during summer, we have to be cautious and protect our kids. Wearing comfy and cotton made garments are the best for our kids. Applying sunscreen is really important. It's as if sunscreen has become a magical tool especially during summer. There are different types of sunscreen to use for children 6years and younger and older too. We just have to be sure that we get the ones with the highest SPF for kids especially if they're to spend hours under the sun. Re-applying sunscreen every 3 hours is most advisable.
Choosing the right shampoo and soap is very important too. What I have for Roey is the Johnson's baby soft & shiny shampoo and Ate K picked the Palmolive Naturals' Fashion Girl shampoo & conditioner.
Ate K was still at school the other day when I had Roey wear a hand me down swim suit and let her do her "smimming" in a large basin that I use for the laundry. It was less than 30 minutes but she totally had fun.
