10 facts to keep you sun safe

10 facts to keep you sun safe

I’m really hoping that the sunshine we saw last week isn’t it for the summer. Looking at these photos below which I took at the tail end of last week and over the weekend seems almost an eon ago compared to the deluge I experienced on the way to see the health visitor this morning.

Staying sunsafe - The Little Pip

It was so nice to go out in sandals (#twinningiswinning in our matching Saltwaters, of course!) and without my winter parka which was what I ended up wearing in the rain today – I need to get a summer weight rain jacket I think to ensure that the sun keeps on shining!

Was anyone else a little caught out though when the sun first appeared? I have to admit that Pip came home a little pink around the neck when I hadn’t organised yet her sunhat and suncream for pre-school. Our absolute favourite, which I recommend to everyone I meet, and we have been using since Pip was small, is the Green People children’s sun cream – we use both the scent-free and the lavender one and can be used even on Pip’s eczema prone face – and I’m pleased to say we now have tubes for school and home thanks to Green People.

This is the perfect time to remember to order some during the few days that you don’t need it, but it will arrive to have handy when you do. My top tip is to have more than one tube kept in different places so you aren’t caught out, and to also have sachets or a travel sized container in your bag/buggy/car.

Despite the rain today, I am hopeful that the weather will pick up a little, not least as we are heading to Cornwall in June and the place we are staying has a window perfect for watching the sunsets and I will be a little disappointed if we don’t catch one…

Assuming it does, here’s a few tips for staying sun safe.

    How cute are you guys in your matching Saltwaters (I do the same with my girls!).

    I was so surprised when I found out there is only 1% difference between factor 30 and factor 50, I always assumed it was way more protective. Great tips 🙂 x
