What sun protection should you use this summer?

Quelle protection solaire utiliser cet été? - Lison Paris

The sun is the best source of vitamin D and a natural mood booster. So why does everyone seem to be afraid of it? Because while the sun is enjoyable, it can have very harmful consequences on your health and that of your children, so

This summer, as you slip into your new Lison Paris swimsuit, whether it's recycled or offers UPF50+ protection, never forget your sunscreen: For children, prefer the "broad spectrum" label which protects against UVA and UVB rays (UVA causes accelerated skin aging, UVB causes burns. Both contribute to skin cancer). As a general rule, we always advise you to choose hypoallergenic and fragrance-free sun care products.

Today, there are many brands that are respectful of your children's skin, eco-friendly, and even local. But always choose a high level of protection, and buy new sunscreen every year.

How to properly use sun protection?

By the water where the sun's rays reflect, you should use a sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of at least 30 for your little ones. The golden rule: apply sunscreen generously and reapply every two hours. It's also important to reapply sunscreen after each swim, even if it's water-resistant, as no sunscreen effectively protects after repeated swims... According to a consumer study, they can lose up to 59% of their effectiveness.

The sun's rays are most aggressive between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., so it's better to avoid this time slot and take the opportunity to have lunch in the shade, take a nap, or stay in the shade.

Very young babies - up to one year old - have very delicate and sensitive skin. Avoid exposing them during dangerous hours, and especially use a parasol or suitable shelter as sunscreens are not suitable for infants.

UV-protective clothing as sun protection?

If you're familiar with our brand of Lison Paris swimwear, you already know that an easy and trendy way to protect your children's skin is... UV-protective clothing!

Sun protection clothing is now a smart and fashionable solution. They cover a large part of their bodies while allowing freedom of movement and enjoyment in the water. The collection of eco-responsible swimwear offers your children a very high sun protection of UPF 50+.

UV-protective clothing is designed to block UV radiation through various features. The fibers are usually synthetic (polyester or polyamide) and the weave is tighter. Dark colors are preferred as they better block UV rays.

The effectiveness of these garments is indicated by an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF), similar to sunscreens. It ranges from 15 to 50+ depending on the level of protection provided. The higher the UPF, the more radiation is blocked and the skin is protected against sunburn. Lison Paris offers collections with UPF 50+ protection.

Lison Paris offers one-piece swimsuits for girls, long-sleeved swimsuits for babies, and UV-protective T-shirts for girls and boys, all coordinated with our collections. Your children can create colorful and elegant looks while protecting themselves without any constraints.
