Starting Early; 3 Ways To Teach Your Kids About Skin Careon Wednesday, November 22, 2017
Teaching children about skincare should be integral to teaching them about hygiene. Learning to care for and protect their skin early will help establish good habits as they age, ensuring a lifetime of (hopefully!) healthy skin. Use these three suggestions to plant the seeds of skincare with your children and make healthy skin a family affair.
Keep sunscreen next to the front door.
Make a concrete habit of applying sunscreen to all exposed areas before every outing. Make a fun routine of it, sing a little song or accompany your application with a happy dance. Whatever your delivery method, be consistent. The key to skin health in children is sun protection, so make it a priority.
Make water the beverage of choice every day.
A treat like chocolate milk or juice every now again is certainly acceptable, but the sooner children learn how crucial hydration is to their well-being the better. Keep their water bottles at their sides throughout the day so that hydration becomes a habit.
Lotion up after hand washing, face washing, and bath-time.
Hot water can dry out skin, and in colder months that can lead to chapped hands and faces. Get your kids into the habit of using a bit of lotion after wash time to ensure their skin stays as supple as it can be.
