When is it safe to sunbathe and what factor sunscreen should I use?
It is advised to choose a sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB radiation from the sun. The SPF (sun protection factor) tells you the amount of protection the sun cream gives against UVB radiation. To give you the best protection from the sun’s harmful rays, it is recommended to buy higher factors (at least factor 15). It is important to check the ‘use by’ date on your sun creams, as most only last around 2 to 3 years.
