How can I protect my child from the sun when swimming?

What if my child goes swimming?

If your child is going swimming, use a sunscreen that is 4 hours water resistant and offers broad spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays, like our range of Banana Boat Kids products.

You should also consider other cover ups, such as long sleeved swim shirts and hats, to provide extra protection.


How often should my child reapply sunscreen when swimming?

Children should reapply sunscreen immediately after towel drying, to ensure they are properly protected and to help reduce the risk of sunburn and UV exposure.
