Smart sunscreen choices

Sunscreen tips for New York kids
With summer upon us, we know everyone will be spending a lot more time in the park, at the beach, and outside in general. In addition to making sure you have cool drinks and a beach blanket, your first priority should be applying sunscreen – early and often. It’s important for the entire family but especially for kids. It’s easy to forget in New York City, but kids can get some serious sun just in an afternoon of shopping with their parents or shuttling between playdates.

Many of us turn to ewg.org for their guide to sunscreens, this year in its 10th annual edition. They offer helpful categories such as best sunscreens for kids (and worst sunscreens for kids), best beach and sport sunscreens, plus tips for other ways to protect yourself from the sun. It’s our first stop every summer! Check out the guide now.
