Sunscreens should be at least SPF30+, broad spectrum and water resistant
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
- be reapplied every two hours – and it should be applied more often when you’re sweating.
Always check and follow the use by date on sunscreen.
It is also recommended to protect your lips with an SPF 30+ lip balm.
