Sunscreen every day
Remember these nine top tips to ensure effectiveness of Sun Days Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+.
1. You can burn in shade
Apply SPF every day, all year-round and even in cloudy weather. Take precautions and carry Sun Days everywhere.
2. More is more
There’s a good chance you’re not applying enough. Adults use about a teaspoon (5 squirts for lotion) for the face, neck and ears, a teaspoon for each arm and leg, a teaspoon for the front and back of the body. Reduce this amount very slightly for kids.
3. Don’t miss a spot
Remember to apply to eyes, scalp, lips, hands and feet.
4. The 20 minute rule
Heading outside? Apply 20 minutes beforehand so it has more time to absorb and bind to skin.
5. Re-apply after two hours
Or after swimming, exercising, working or playing outdoors. Be especially vigilant particularly if you’re at the beach, park or in any direct sunlight.
6. Avoid Peak Hours
The sun’s UV rays are the strongest between 10AM and 4PM. Limit direct exposure during this time if you can.
7. Look for shade
Sit under a tree or bring an umbrella or tent to the beach or park. You should still wear sunscreen even if you’re in a shaded spot.
8. Look out for the UV Index.
You can usually find the UV index indicated in your weather report.
9. Layer up
When UV levels are three or above, Sun Days should always be used with other forms of sun protection such as protective clothing, a hat and sunglasses.
