Best skin care products for active kids

Does your child love sports? Whether they are signed up to every after school club, spend all their spare time at the pool or train on the tennis court or football pitch, you can help them to feel confident in their skin with our guide to choosing skin care products for active kids.

With products suitable for younger children through to pre-teens and teenagers, our natural and organic kids’ products allow you to care for your child’s skin without harsh ingredients.

 

Do kids need skin care for sports?

There’s lots of skin care that can benefit active children of all ages.

Kids that play sport outside should be applying an age-appropriate children’s sun cream that is water repellent to withstand sweat.

Children that participate in athletics races or cycling can also benefit from applying sun lotion and from using a balm to prevent chafing from helmets or sportswear.

Young swimmers will need sun protection if they swim outside and may also need to protect their skin and hair from the drying effects of chlorine. This is especially important for children that love to swim and have eczema.

Our tips for learning to swim with eczema-prone skin can help you to pack their swim bag with products that help keep their skin safe as they swim.

B.O. and spots can affect older children’s sporting confidence and may mean that as your child grows, they stop enjoying sports that they once loved. To help all children stay active and feel confident in their skin, we’re sharing our top skin care choices for active kids.
