Spring Break Must-Haves to Keep Yourself Protected From the Sun
Here's our list of Spring Break must-haves to stay protected from the sun:
- Lightweight, dark colored clothing (preferably with a UPF rating)

- SPF lip balm (with an SPF of at least 15)
How to Keep Babies Protected from the Sun Over Spring Break
Our checklist can be adjusted based on your age and skin cancer risk level. Sun protection for babies and children will look a little different. Sunscreen can be applied liberally only on babies over 6 months old. If you need more support on how to keep your baby sun safe, we've also got you covered there.
For tikes that are younger than 6 months, direct sunlight should be avoided. Protect baby’s delicate skin with light-weight UPF 50+ protective clothing, a wide-brimmed hat, a baby sun blanket, and plenty of shade.
Wearing UV-protective clothing is just one step in living a sun-safe life. Make sure you remember to seek the shade when possible, cover all exposed areas of skin with SPF 30+ sunscreen and avoid the peak hours of the day (10am-4pm) when the sun’s UV rays are the strongest.
