How To Stay Safe in the Snow
Take frequent breaks. Playing in the snow can be a lot of fun – but there is a smart way to do it. Be sure to take breaks every 30-40 minutes. Apply sunscreen 30 minutes prior to going outside and remember to reapply sunscreen at least every 2 hours as you would in the summertime. The sun’s bright rays reflect off the snow, so kids (and adults!) can still get sunburnt. To avoid windburn, use lip balm with SPF often and apply sunscreen to all exposed skin. Playing in the snow is a physical activity, it’s important to get some water during those breaks also.
