Consumer Reports Says Stop Using Spray Sunscreen On Your Kids

The summer sun in El Paso can roast you like a chicken in just minutes, and kids are especially vulnerable, which is why parents are told to use sunscreen on them and reapply every 2 hours. But now Consumer Reports says that sunscreen might actually do more harm than good.

Don't Use Spray Sunscreen On Kids

Consumer Reports says the FDA is investigating spray sunscreens and say that the risk of it being breathed in by kids is reason enough to stop using it. The magazine says they suggest using cream or lotion sunscreens on kids.

They say adults can use the spray, but never to use it on your face because you might breathe it in. They say to spray the sunscreen on your hands and rub it on your face.

Consumer Reports also recommends that you do the same with your kids if you have to use spray sunscreen.
