What’s in Your Beach Bag? | Sunscreen, Sunglasses, and Lip Balm
Sunglasses should be at least UV400 for protecting our eyes from the sun. If eyes are exposed to the sun for too long, this can lead to diseases such as cataracts, skin cancer on the eyelids, pteryguim (where tissue grows on the whites of the eyes) and macular degeneration, where the sensitive area of the cornea begins to deteriorate.
The CDC recommends that children 2 years and up should use insect repellant that contains 10-30% DEET. This protects against Lyme disease and West Nile virus. Infants under 2 months cannot have DEET applied to their skin. And do not buy bug spray/sunscreen combinations. Sunscreen needs to be reapplied, opposed to bug screen which does not.
Book or Magazine
While the kids play, you may want to unwind or just entertain yourself. Grab your favorite magazine or a new book and read. It will help the time pass quicker. Take one for the kids too, in case they want to take a break and have nothing to do.
