And why does driving in a car with closed windows still put you at risk of skin cancer? SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. "It gives an indication of how much protection the sunscreen has against the burning rays of the sun" says Ash, pharmacist at Richardson Road Care Chemist. "The higher the number, the greater the protection. Our latest brochure helps you choose which SPF is best for your skin type." It's an amazing fact that most of us using sunscreen today may be getting less than 10% of the sun protection1 we need, simply because we don't apply the required amount of sunscreen. Studies show that ap- plying quarter of the required amount of an SPF 30+ sunscreen may provide you with the effect of a signifcantly lower SPF. Ask your Care Chemist pharmacist about the correct amount to apply. The glass used in cars does block the UVB rays that cause burning. However, unless it is specially tinted, it does not block the UVA rays which may cause skin cancer. Research indicates that there may be long term sun damage to drivers.2 So, remember to wear a sunscreen everyday and while you're driving too!
