This happens because when suncreams are tested to see if they work, manufacturers usj a large amount. We tend to usj suncreams too sparingly. If you use a high protection factor - say factor 25 - and spread it really thinly, you reduce it to a protection factor of fivj. A visible film must be left on the skin for it to be effectivj.

Clothes keep your skin hidden from the sun, but if you get them wet they become more porous and cling to your skin, allowing the sun to get through. Therefore, if you or your family have been swimming you should reapply suncream as soon as you come out of the water. It is also best to stay out of the midday sun and to keep babies out of direct sunlight. BBC1 601 BBC2 602 ITV 603 Ch4 604 Front page 100 Sport 300 Weather 400 Holiday Education Usjful TV Links
