SPF-sun protection factor: the degree to which a sunscreen protects the skin from the direct rays of the sun

About Your Spf:
Some People Go & Grab the Highest Spf because they think its better!
but the higher the Spf only means you allowed to stay in the sun longer
so the amount of Spf is your amount of sun exposer before you need to re-apply
for example the picture above is a SPF 30 300 minutes of sun exposer before you should reapply or burning SPF 15 lasts 150 minutes, or 2 hours and a half.

SPF 15 filters out or blocks 92% of UV(B) rays from the sun.

It allows an individual that would normally burn in 10 minutes to NOT burn for 150 minutes.SPF 30 lasts 300 minutes, or 5 hours.

SPF 90 lasts for 900 minutes, or 15 hours

Sunlight exposes you to two kinds of ultraviolet light, called UVA and UVB. Both can cause skin damage, including wrinkling and skin cancer.

Choose a sunscreen based on your skin type, your climate, and the intensity of your sun exposure.


In the 1980s, UVA Radiation was considered safe and used in tanning beds. UVA actually does the most harm. UV = Ultra Violet.

UVB Radiation is prominent in summer months in any earth hemisphere; in summer, that part of the earth is closest to the sun. Sunscreens used to block only UVB, until we found out that UVA is worse for the body.

UVC Raditaion is largely absorbed by the earth's Ozone Layer, one reason that the Ozone Layer is so important. Prolonged UVC exposure is fatal.
