By Deborah Hernan The summer season provides a unique opportunity to teach our beautiful daughters a critically important life skill:  How to protect her face from the sun. Source: Flickr User teresawer “A” is for Always. We become keenly aware of the need for sun protection in the summer time.  But protecting her face from the sun should be a daily habit: summer, fall, winter, and spring.  For tweens, the importance of applying sun protection daily cannot be overstated.   The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends a sunscreen with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, the sun blocking chemicals that are least likely to cause allergic reaction, for the sensitive areas of the face. While zinc oxide may remind you of noses slathered in white goop, some of today’s formulas are available in a light, fast drying form that make for easy application, and leave no ghostly residue so they are great for all skin tones.  The smooth feel will leave your tween’s face feeling soft, smooth and protected. “B” is for Behavior. Good facial care is a learned behavior and its benefits, particularly when started at an early age, last a life time.  We all know that having clean, healthy, clear skin adds to our daughters’ well being and self confidence. So be a model of smart behavior.  Starting today, explain why it is important to cleanse your face at least twice a day.  Demonstrate the importance of a daily application of a SPF moisturizer .  Face the mirror together, and show her how to apply her sunscreen properly.  Use a sunscreen that is easy to apply and isn’t sticky.  Add this step to her daily grooming ritual:  brush teeth, cleanse face, and apply sunscreen to face. “C” is for Coverage.
