What does SPF 50 mean?
Lets take it back to basics first and make sure we all understand what is SPF 50? Vis got you, dont worry. SPF or sun protection factor, is a measurement of how well a sunscreen protects you against getting burnt. SPF 50 means it would take you 50 times longer to burn than if you werent wearing SPF. SPF 50 blocks 98% of UVB rays from hitting your skin (remember, no SPF blocks 100% of rays).
How long does SPF 50 last?
Did you ever think that wearing SPF 50 meant you could stay out in the sun for longer or skip reapplying as frequently? A few nods? Soz, no. No matter whether youre wearing SPF 30 or SPF 50, you absolutely need to reapply just as often and take just as much care in the sun. The Cancer Council recommends applying around one teaspoon of SPF for each arm, leg, body front, body back and face. When it comes to your face, you want to aim for at least a ¼ teaspoon. Repeat after us, reapply every 2 hours plus after swimming or sweating.
SPF 50 vs SPF 30
So where does SPF 30 fit into the equation? SPF 30 is twice as protective against UV as SPF 15 and then SPF 50 is twice as protective as SPF 30. Vi has both SPF 30 and SPF 50 to give you the option to choose the right one for your lifestyle and skin.
