All you need to know about SPF 30
Should I reapply sunscreen throughout the day?
Yes – although it depends on what you are doing in the sun (that determines whether or not you need to reapply more). If you are spending all day in the sun, reapply your SPF 30 every 2-3 hours, especially during the hottest part of the day. You should use about one teaspoon on areas such as your face and neck, as these are more exposed. If you are sitting in an office near a window, you will still need to apply sunscreen, but may only need to apply it once.
What does SPF mean?
When you shop for sunscreen there is a number next to the term SPF, which means 'sun protection factor'. This is an indication of how long we can exposure our skin to the sun for, before it begins to burn. With 30 SPF, this means that once applied, your skin will have 30 times more protection than without any sunscreen. It is important to re-apply sunscreen regularly if you are out in the heat all day.
What does 'broad spectrum' mean?
You should keep the phrase 'broad spectrum' in mind when purchasing sunscreen, as this indicates that the sunscreen protects you from both UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays are rays that are responsible for causing skin cancer and premature ageing/dark spots etc. UVA rays are responsible for sunburn and wrinkling of the skin. If you have a product that is a broad spectrum sunscreen, you should be well-protected against both of these types of harmful rays.
Is factor 30 as strong as factor 50?
Factor 50 does give you that little bit more protection, and is a good idea if you are protecting those with sensitive skin or little ones. There is however not a huge difference between factor 30 and factor 50. A product with SPF 30 is still a good amount of protection to have against the sun's rays, as long as you apply it regularly.
