What sunscreen is recommended for working outdoors?
It is important to remember that no sunscreen provides complete protection from UV radiation – so never rely on sunscreen alone.
The NSW Cancer Council recommends that sunscreens should:
- be at least SPF30+, broad spectrum and water resistant
- be applied generously to clean, dry skin 15 to 20 minutes before going outdoors
- reapplied every two hours or more often when sweating.
Always check and follow the use by date on sunscreen.
It is also recommended to protect lips with an SPF 30+ lip balm.
