Dr. JJ sits down with Home & Family to discuss sunscreen safety and children. A recent study has said only 25% of children wear sunscreen regularly. She suggests looking for mineral sunscreens for babies and kids, because they are less irritable to skin. She also recommends applying sunscreen every two hours or at least every 90 minutes if the person is getting wet or sweating. Finally, Dr. JJ cautions sunscreen users to be on the lookout for the ingredient oxybenzone, because it can cause irritation and local allergic reactions in all ages.
