How to choose the best sunscreen?

As the temperatures rise, more and more of us head outside for picnics or the beach. However, anyone who has turned red after a few hours outside should know that sunscreen or SPF is essential.

"SPFs are rated on a scale of 2 to 50+," says Prof Brian Diffey of the British Association of Dermatologists. "We recommend an SPF of 30 or higher for the best sun protection."

In addition to SPF, make sure the sunscreen also displays a star rating.

"A sunscreen with an SPF of 30 and a rating of 4 or 5 stars is generally considered a good standard of sun protection, in addition to shade and clothing," says Diffey.

In theory, SPF 30 means your skin will burn 30 times more without the cream. It should be applied every two hours during sun exposure, according to experts.
