Kid Approved

Getting your kids to wear sunscreen can be challenging, to say the least, so it's our job to make the experience as easy and pleasant as possible by presenting them with great options.  It's also really important to take the time to explain why we wear it (yes, you must set the example) and then give them a few sunscreens to choose from.  Every kid has a preference when it comes to texture and scent, so give him or her  two or three bottles to try and them let them make the final call.  My girls have sensitive skin, both fair and delicate, so I stick with zinc or titanium based choices.  Each has her "favorites" and I make sure I'm always fully stocked - consistency is key.  Here are their current top picks.  And they know best...sometimes!
