Sunscreen: A Little Dab Won’t Do Ya

Posted on: August 15, 2012

“Sunscreen manufactures determine SPF in a laboratory setting. Subjects put on a certain amount of sunscreen per centimeter of skin and are then exposed to a solar simulator (a lamp that creates UV radiation similar to sunlight). The amount of sunscreen applied for this test is quite heavy, far more than most people ever use at the beach.

The reality is that an SPF 80 can act like an SPF 3 if you only apply a think layer. Therefore, we urge patients to layer their sunscreen. Apply your sunscreen thirty minutes before exposing yourself to the sun. Let it dry down for at lease fifteen minutes and then reapply another coat just before your tennis match, mountain hike, or other outdoor activity. That way, you’ll have a fighting chance of achieving the full SPF rating and maximizing the potential UVA protection of your product”.DermRf
