Many Australians apply too little sunscreen before heading outdoors. Knowing how to apply sunscreen is crucial for ensuring your skin is properly protected to help prevent sun damage.
- Firstly make sure you apply your sunscreen 20 minutes before going into the sun.
- Secondly, use approximately 7 NIVEA measuring spoons or 35ml for a full body application to adequately protect your body from sun damage.
- When using a spray sunscreen multiple pumps are required to equate to 1 teaspoon
Remember to reapply sunscreen lotion every two hours, and immediately after sweating, swimming and towel drying off.
*7 NIVEA teaspoon/35ml recommended for an average adult
