SPF? Do you know what this means with the additional number afterwards ie
SPF 30. Its surprising how many people don't know what the number means.
SPF (Sun Protection Factor) 30 = x30 your personal skin burning time. The average person will get a sun burn within 10 minutes of sun exposure, others are less, some are longer.
Example SPF 30......... 30 x 10 (minutes) = 300 minutes of safe sun exposure before re-application.
So if you are buying an SPF 8 = 8 x 10(Minutes) = 80 minutes of safe sun exposure.
It is not how thick the cream is (yes I've heard this), its your protection time.
ALSO Protection creams should be applied to cold skin at least 20minutes before exposure to ensure it has been absorbed - sitting on the beach and applying cream to hot skin is a waste and just gets dried by the sun before absorbtion (this is where the TV adverts are very negligent - don't copy their model on the beach!)
No quitting, No Excuses.
