What does SPF mean?
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor ie sunburn protection factor.
The number includes the following: The time factor that a person can stay in the sun longer than the time he can be unprotected in the sun.
For example: A person with skin type 2 burns in the afternoon after about 20 minutes. When a sunscreen is used with an SPF of 6, the sunburn occurs only after 6 x 20 minutes, so after 2 hours. This person will therefore be able to burn with the sunscreen after two hours, even though he has rubbed. This latter is again depending on the season, location, and time of day.
Are you less tan if a higher SPF is used?
No, it just takes a little longer.
Can you get tan when you are sitting in the shade?
Yes absolutely! Also in the shade UVA and UVB radiation is present
How much sunscreen do I need?
In order to get the protection that is promised, the sunscreen lotion should be fairly thick applied to the skin. Lubricate few passes indicated a much lower protection factor than on the package.
