For example, SPF of your chosen cream or spray is 20. Then the work of these two numbers as a result will give you 400 minutes – this will be the time during which this tool will reliably protect you from the sun. After this time, the product must be applied again.
It must be remembered that not a single sunscreen is able to fully retain the sun’s rays. Therefore, using the cosmetics from the sun, do not forget about other advice useful in summer days – try to be in the shade as much time as possible, wear wide -brimmed hats, avoid being under the sun during its highest activity and select the sunscreen suitable for your type glasses.
