There couldn’t be a more perfect nickname for Florida than ‘The Sunshine State’. We take pride in our tropical weather and glowing skin, but it’s important to remember the source of this tempting moniker. Because Florida is located so close to the equator, the chances of sunburn are increased exponentially compared to most other states in the country. UV rays are the strongest in the middle of the day during summer months, which is coincidentally, exactly when we like to hit the beach.

Pro Tip for those readers living or visiting Volusia Daytona Beach. Here are some free beach parking locations.

A child’s skin begins to burn within a mere 15 minutes of being subjected to the UV rays in sunlight. Whether you’re home tackling yardwork or beaching it for the day, it’s imperative to apply sunscreen to the kiddos for any task or adventure outside. You can also stay in the know and track the daily UV data when planning activities.
