Tip: Slowly accustom your child to the sun. If your child is used to it, your child also can wear short clothes. This especially applies for children, who naturally have a darker skin colour. Especially children with a darker skin colour form a self-protection in the summer and can spend some time outdoors in short clothes and without sunscreen, without getting a sunburn. Also important is the intake of vitamin D, which is only possible through the sunlight, but is prevented or reduced by sunscreen.
