Scientists and doctors recommend using sun cream with an SPF protection factor of at least 30. Most medium factor sun screens have an SPF of around 20 to 30.
SPF or Sun Protection Factor, measures how well a sunscreen will protect your skin from UVB rays. This is important because UVB radiation causes sunburn, damages skin, and can lead to skin cancer.
Face creams often contain a light to medium sun protection factor to protect you from the sun. These should be supplemented with sunscreen when heading outdoors for a day in the sun. You also get tinted facial sun cream that can be used as a daily cream.
