SPF is a buzzword that we hear all the time and especially when the warmer weather comes around! But do you know what SPF stands for?
SPF stands for sun protection factor, which is the number (15, 30 or 50) you see on the packaging ☀️ The numbers refer to a guideline of time your skin can be exposed to the sun before burning from UVB damage but don’t refer to UVA protection at all 😲
For example, if you’re out in the sun without sunscreen and your skin starts to turn pink/red after 10 minutes, wearing an SPF 30 would delay this by 300 minutes, and an SPF 50 would delay this by 500 minutes!
And don't forget, even though summer means warmer weather and more sunshine, you should still opt for broad-spectrum protection all-year-round to ensure you’re covered against UVA rays too.
Now you're all clued up on what SPF really means, it's time to find your perfect formula! Our handy guides will help you discover your new favourite sun care products for your face and body.
