Hi Mommas,

Have you started hunting for a good sunscreen this summer? No Im not talking about you but your kidos. Im sure you dont want to cancel your holiday because of the sun. It is best to protect your little one’s delicate skin from the sun even in water.

Sunscreens are also available for infants but if you keep them covered there is no need for a sunscreen. Too much sunscreen will block the vitamin d inflow into their system.

What should you look for in a sunscreen?

  • Broad spectrum protection, UVA and UVB is always good
  • Minimum of SPF 15, you can select a higher SPF if your going on a holiday.
  • Hypo-allergic and if its made specifically for kids. Do a patch test first and if your using an adult sunscreen always talk to your doctor.
  • Is it water resistance for a beach holiday or they plans to dive into the pool?

You have all types of sunscreens from lotions, creams, gels and sprays. Select what is convenient. Always dab the sunscreen and do not rub. Creams provide maximum protection.So lets start with my list:

Sunscreen:Farlin – Baby Sunscreen Lotion SPF 20

Price: 995

Age group- 6 months plus

Why would I pick this: One of the mildest sunscreen made out of rice extracts.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Sunscreen:Chicco – Sun Milk Baby Moments Milk Spray

Price: 850

Age group- 12 months plus

Why would I pick this: They have both a sunscreen and spray. High protection from UVA and B and contains vitamin E and yay! water resistant too.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Sunscreen:Sunban- has very high SPF starting from 50-100

Price: check at your nearest drugstore (300-500)

Age group- 12 months plus

Why would I pick this: This was recommended by my pediatrician for very high sun protection and it is water resistant. Should be used only at very high temperatures.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Sunscreen:Nivea Sun Kids Sunscreen with SPF 50

Price: 385

Age group- 6 months plus

Why would I pick this: Works very well in water, gets absorbed very quickly. Contains vitamin E and enhances the body’s own sun defense mechanism. I would have definitely selected this one as my best find, but sadly availability is a big big issue. Its not easily available online like the other ones. You need to hunt baby stores.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

My Pick

Sunscreen:Lotus Herbals Sun Kids Sun block Cream SPF 25

Price: 285

Age group- 6 months plus

Why would I pick this: One of the most cost efficient sunscreens in India. I love the smell and its moisturizing effect. It did a great job during our recent holiday. And I would definitely trust a brand that makes products for Indian skin and summers. Lastly its my winner for the availability, you will find it in all health n glow stores and online.
