6 Essential Rules of SPF

Make sure you get the most out of using sunscreen with these 6 essential rules! Wearing sunscreen helps to protect our skin from UV rays which cause skin damage and premature skin ageing.

1. It is recommended to use at least 6 teaspoons of sunscreen to cover an adult’s body, over half a teaspoon for each arm, over half a teaspoon (or 2 fingers) for your face and neck, over one teaspoon for each leg, front of body and back.


2. Make sure to apply to all exposed skin, don’t forget your ears, back of neck, hands and feet!

3. Reapply every 2 hours, and after swimming or sweating.


4. Wear SPF every day, even when it’s grey and cloudy outside, as UV rays (especially UVA rays) can penetrate through clouds and cause skin damage.


5. Water, snow, sand and pavements can all reflect UV rays which increases exposure and the need to wear SPF. fragrance free sunscreen

6. Apply 30 minutes before sun exposure (especially when using a chemical SPF).
