PARENT ALERT: Don't Spray Sunscreen On Kids

Posted July 10th, 2014 @ 11:19am

If you're taking your kids to the beach or the pool this summer, skip the spray sunscreens and go for the good old classic lotions - that is according to Consumer Reports.

They have issued a warning that spray sunscreens are being investigated by the FDA for potential risks, particularly that children are breathing it in while being sprayed which could be harmful.

Below are a couple safety rules from Consumer Reports:

• Don’t use sprays on children, unless you have no other product available. In that case, spray the sunscreen onto your hands and rub it on. As with all sunscreens, be especially careful on the face, taking care to avoid the eyes and mouth.

• Adults can still use sprays—but don’t spray your face! Instead, spray on your hands and rub it on, making sure to avoid your eyes and mouth. And try to avoid inhaling it.
