Uvistat SPF50 Lipscreen protects against UV rays and wind that may cause cold sores, dryness and chapping. Ideal for use on delicate areas such as nose, ears and nipples.
To ensure full protection from your sunscreen, apply 20 to 30 minutes before going out into the sun. This allows time for the sunscreen to form a protective film on the skin.
The higher the SPF the safer you will be. It's a myth that using an SPF of 15 or higher will stop you getting a tan. If the skin does not burn, it tans more slowly without blistering and peeling, meaning your tan will last longer. The higher the SPF (Sun Protection Factor) number, the better the protection.
Children are especially vulnerable. Loose-fitting clothes will help to keep babies cooler. Protect children's skin from sun damage whenever they play outside. Cover up and seek shade when the sun is strongest, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Remember that the sun at home can be just as damaging to the skin as in holiday destinations. Be aware that too much sun can cause skin irritation, heat exhaustion and sunstroke.
For toddlers and youngsters, apply specially formulated SPF30+ children’s lotions and protect them with sunglasses, a hat and loose clothes. Always apply sun lotion generously and reapply it frequently. Avoid over-exposure to the sun. Do not get burned.
How to Choose Sun Cream
Summer is just around the corner and it is likely that you will be spending a lot more time under the sun. With that comes risk. Risks from overexposure to the sun can include sunburn but also skin cancer. To reduce the risk, you will need protection from a sun cream, also known as sunscreen. With so many options out there, it can be daunting making sure that you have the right sun cream to protect you.
