Do you put sunscreen on your kids before school? What do you use?

Now that the kids have recess outside since the weather here has become nicer, I have been putting sunscreen on my Son who is very fair. I use California Baby but he looks like a little white ghost from the titanium dioxide. Any other recommendations?

  • I use California Tan spf 50, not as white, but never dawned on me to put it on before school!

  • Nope I don't, they aren't out long enough to get burnt and they're fair skinned. I use a spray when we do need sunscreen.

  • Not for school. They're only out for 15 minutes.

  • No it wont. Im mobile so cant pull up links. Anyway. Ever wonder why sunscreen smells like coconut oil ? Its because of the sunscreen properties. It lets in good rays while blocking bad. So no burn or rickets. Which is become more prevlant as we use full spectrum sunblocks

  • He's very fair like me & has been coming home a little red. I have had a lot of skin cancers on my face removed so I want to be careful with him. I burnt a lot when I was small.
