    Thanks so much, Dr. Brennan!

    These tips are great! I used love putting my daughter in all of those precious infant hats to keep the sun off of her face.

    I also never knew that, "Sunscreen is most effective when applied 30 minutes before going outside." Looks like we'll be more prepared for the beach this year, thanks to you! :)
