Keep in mind the following points about sunscreen to help protect you and your family from the summer sun:

  • To cover your entire body well you’d ideally use 35mls which is 7 teaspoons of sunscreen. If it’s put on too thinly the protection is lessened and it won’t work as well.
  • A greater SPF does not mean that less sunscreen needs to be applied or that you can stay in the sun for a longer period of time. SPF is a rating of what percentage of UV rays the sunscreen protects you from.
  • Sunscreen needs to be reapplied every two hours and after swimming, perspiring or towelling.
