FAQ

Sun cream contains filters that prevent UV radiation reaching your skin. There are physical and chemical filters.

Physical filters consist of small particles that help filter out UV radiation.

Chemical filters have molecules that absorb UV radiation and convert it into harmless radiation through a chemical reaction.

Different filters protect differently against UVA and UVB radiation, and a combination of those filters may often be required to achieve adequate protection.

You should apply plenty of sun cream. The most common mistake when it comes to using sun cream is to use too little.

For an adult, about 35 grams of sunscreen should be used, which is equivalent to about 6 teaspoons. Using a smaller amount reduces the protection you receive. If you read the fine print on the packaging, a recommended amount is often stated on the bottle.

Start by applying some before you go out. Remember that swimming and vigorous drying with towels means that the sun cream gradually disappears from your skin. So it’s important to apply more cream after a while. Aim to top up your protection every two hours.
