Everyone knows that it is very important not to burn by the sun. But what exactly do you have to pay attention to?
Everything depends on how quickly you would burn if you were not smeared with a sun protection factor (SPF). Someone with skin type 1 should never lie in the sun as these people will burn immediately. For someone with skin type 2, who burns quickly and can very slowly build up a tan at a high SPF. Skin type 3, Does not burn quickly and makes it easier to tan a medium to high SPF is recommended. Skin type 4, almost never burns and tans easily, this skin type needs a low to medium SPF.
But when and how often should I apply a sunscreen?
You always do the best to use the sunscreen 20 minutes before you go in the sun, so the product can work in the best possible way. Example:
When you would not use sunscreen and you go out in the sun and you would be burned in about 20 minutes, that means if you were to use an SPF 10 that you can sit in the sun for up to 200 minutes without getting red.
So it depends on your skin type and the SPF you use, how long you can sit in the sun without burning.
Water resistant products ensure a maximum protection time of 40 minutes.
Water proof products ensure a maximum protection time of 80 minutes.
It is recommended at all times every time after swimming and drying you re-lubricate!
If you are not going to swim, it is advised to re-apply every 2 hours!
