    Default Suncream after 7pm?

    Just interested as to what others do as dh and I disagreed on this. If u were heading down the beach at 7pm on a hot summers day, would u bother putting suncream on ur kids? Or just cover with a hat and T-shirt?

    I would check the UV alert for that day. For us the alert is currently 6:40am-4pm. I really don't think anywhere would have a UV alert at 7pm. I wouldn't even bother covering up.

    UV alert usually finishes just after.5 (where I am anyway). I would still put sunscreen just so DS is in the habit of doing it every time he goes out. (Saves complaining down the track "but I didn't have to do it last time")

    No I wouldn't because the UV index would be under 3 when sunscreen isn't necessary.

    This - we are currently on the beach and after 5pm is the only time DS doesn't have to apply sunscreen , he's currently in the water and gets exited as he doesn't have to wear a rash shirt at night!

    Depends on the UV index and where you live.

    7pm in Qld is nearly dark so not necessary.

    7pm in states with daylight savings and long twilight - possibly

    No. I wouldn't even cover up with a t-shirt and hat at that time of day.

    No, absolutely would not put sunscreen on, and am surprised that anyone would think to do so :/

    I'm super strict about sunscreen but even I wouldn't think to apply it at 7pm even if the sun were still out.
