SPF, or Sun Protection Factor, is a measure of how well a sunscreen protects against UVB rays. The higher the SPF, the more protection your skin is getting; so with SPF 30, you receive a high amount of protection from the sun but care still needs to be taken.
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and is a measurement of the effectiveness of sunscreen in helping protect your skin from sun damage. SPF 30 means that the sunscreen will allow you to stay in the sun 30 times longer than you could without it before you start burning. However, as the UV rays break down this protection over time, reapplying sun protection regularly is essential.
It is recommended that you apply sun protection products around 30 minutes before going outside and at least every two hours afterwards, and after each swim, to help protect your skin from sun damage. For those spending most of the day indoors and their outdoor time away from intense UV rays, an application once a day is usually sufficient.
It is important to wear sunscreen to help prevent sunburn and other harmful effects of UV exposure that can lead to skin cancer, wrinkles, and other related skin conditions. No sun protection products can block 100% of the sun’s UV rays, but SPF 15 filters out around 92%, SPF 30 filters out approximately 96% and SPF 60 filters around 97%. The highest SPF products contain an increase in chemicals over those offering lower protection, so skin issues such as prickly heat can sometimes be experienced. This makes SPF 30 the best choice to provide optimum protection for your skin.
The benefits of SPF 30 on skin are not as widely known as they should be. Applying SPF 30 to your skin on a daily basis has multiple benefits. 80-90% of skin ageing is caused by daylight exposure, so sun protection products can play a significant role in skin health.
SPF 30 products provide good protection against harmful UV rays, and therefore can reduce your risk of developing not just skin cancer, but prematurely skin ageing and pigmentation as well.
SPF products are one of the most important things you can apply to keep your skin healthy and youthful. We advise the daily application of no less than SPF 30 to protect the skin from harmful UV rays and to ensure sufficient protection from both UVA and UVB.
