HOW DO YOU SPF?! MUMMY & MINI SWIM & AVÉNE’S NEW SUNSCREEN FOR KIDS
BY MARCIA LEONE
After what has seemed like the longest winter ever (OK, we did escape to Europe for 6 weeks, but still….) Those long sunny days are finally here!
When the weather warms up, we head outdoors. Mornings at the beach, late afternoons at the park, BBQ’s for dinner- even back yard picnics while the kids run around.
I’ve always been a “summer” person – give me the heat and sun and I’m a happy camper- but I haven’t always been sun smart; that’s something that’s come with age (ironically to prevent ageing) and has become even more important since having kids.
So invested in our Aussie beach lifestyle, I created a Mama and Mini swim collection with Infamous Swim. Ethically made with UPF 50+ fabrics, our little rash sets offer the best coverage, because when it comes to kids Sun Safety is paramount.
We apply sunscreen every time we go outdoors. Finding a high-protection sunscreen that isn’t greasy but still suitable for babies and children’s delicate skin isn’t always easy. In my experience I’ve found that the more natural versions leave a greasy white layer that gets on everything, and the sunscreens that absorb well are full of chemicals and fragrance that can irritate the skin.
The brand new Avène Sunscreen Spray for Children SPF 50+ is not only high protection, but is formulated with a minimum of chemical filters and no fragrance to respect the sensitive skin of children. It’s also quickly absorbed by the skin for even and invisible protection and comes in a convenient pump pack.
You can find both Avène Sunscreen Spray for Children SPF 50+ and the Avène Sunscreen Spray SPF 50+ at Priceline, Chemist Warehouse and leading pharmacies.
