FOOD – Children who are so active and always running around can easily dehydrate in summer, so keeping them hydrate is very important. To maintain a good fluid level, make sure to give lots of water with high liquid content food. Watermelon, Strawberries, Cantaloupe, Pineapple, Oranges, Raspberries, Cucumber, Green Pepper, Spinach, Grapes etc are the high liquid content food.
CLOTHING – To keep your little one cool in this summer, choose loose-fitting clothes made of 100% cotton (Soft, moisture-absorbing, breathable, from semi-sheer to opaque), Linen (Stubby, softens with each washing, moisture-absorbing, breathable) and Rayon. Lightweight cotton allows air to reach the body and lets sweat evaporate, preventing irritation and cooling the skin.
HEALTHY SKIN – Choose sunscreens which contains zinc oxide or titanium dioxide with sun protection factor(SPF) of 30. Avoid sunscreens that contain parabens, benzophenones, oxybenzone, octinoxate, avobenzone and those that tinted or scented. Choose a broad spectrum sunscreen which protect against UVA & UVB rays. Home remedies for dry skin in children for summer can be treated with Breast Milk, Coconut Oil, olive oil, Almond oil, Oats, Aloe Vera and Avocado
