With August right around the corner, kids are playing longer and harder to get the most out of what’s left of their summer. So how can you make sure they’re staying safe in the heat without slowing down the fun? Do a quick safety check with these “beat the heat” tips.  

Break out the sunscreen. Be sun smart and make sure to apply sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more to your kids, reapplying every two hours. You’ll want to do this around 15 to 30 minutes before sun exposure to allow it to absorb into the skin and decrease the likelihood of it getting washed off. And if they do go swimming, make sure to reapply after they’re done—even if the sunscreen is waterproof. Don’t think you’re covered by the shade on  a cloudy day, either. You can still end up getting burned due to those harmful UV rays.
