What is the best way to apply sunscreen?
All exposed areas on your body and face should be covered with sunscreen and the correct amount to cover an adult’s entire body is approx. 35mL.
Don’t forget to always use other ways to protect your skin – clothing, hats and sunnies. Pay particular attention to the nose, shoulders, ears, chest and head, which should be thoroughly covered with lotion with the highest possible SPF. We also recommend that you re-apply sunscreen every two hours, and immediately after sweating, swimming and towel drying off.
Can I extend the period of sun protection by ‘topping up’ the sunscreen?
The protective effect cannot be extended. Once you have selected an SPF, this, along with your own natural protection time, will determine how long you can stay out in the sun without damaging your skin. Regular reapplication (after drying off, swimming, etc.) helps to maintain the desired level of protection.
Always read the label. Use only as directed.
