All you need to know about SPF 50+
What is the best factor 50 sun cream?
Factor 50 sun creams, lotions and sprays are the best protection you can get. For the best sunscreens in terms of absorption, feel on the skin and scent (or scentless), we would recommend:
- Avene Very High Protection Sun Spray SPF50 200ml
- La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF50+ Body Spray 200ml
- Eucerin Allergy Protection Sun Creme-Gel SPF50 150ml
Which is better, SPF 30 or 50?
SPF 50 offers more protection than SPF 30. However, dermatologists agree that there isn't much difference because SPF 30 blocks about 97% of UVB radiation, and a sunscreen with SPF 50 will block around 98-99%. As a rule, you should generally apply at least SPF 30, seek shade and cover up with clothing during the heat of the day. You should also choose a sunscreen that has UVA protection, as SPF only covers UVB rays.
Is factor 50 the highest SPF?
While there are products on the market that claim to have a factor of over 50, or even 100, they will only ever be around 98% effective as a maximum, and there isn't much difference between them and SPF 50 or 30 sunscreens. More often than not, higher numbers are just a marketing ploy. Factor 50 will give you the best protection possible if you apply the sunscreen correctly.
