Sunscreen Spray and Kids

Wow is it hot in Denver right now.  Great days for being out in the sun at the pool or at Elitches or the water park.

I just came across this article from Consumer Reports 2011 which I think is still relevant regarding the use of sunscreen sprays in kids.  Aerosols from these sprays can easily be inhaled.  We recommend spraying the sunscreen spray into your hand first and then applying to your child.  If you are going to spray the sunscreen on your child, avoid the face and head areas.
