Always apply generously
Today most people know that too much sunbathing is bad for the skin. However, every year many questions about sun protection are asked again and again. Especially in the case of sun protection for children or in the case of skin diseases, many customers are not sure which protection to use.
All over the world skin cancer increases faster than any other type of cancer. In the fifties and sixties children were allowed to be in the sun unprotected. Those children are now at that age (from 60 years onwards) when especially the white skin cancer can break out. Much less frequent but far more dangerous is the malignant melanoma. But the white cancer too can be life-threatening.
A good sun protection is not the only solution for sun damage, but it is an essential part of precaution and the right behaviour. Also use the sunscreen in the shade, in the water and if the sky is cloudy. Buy a new sunscreen after one year. After that time the old sunscreen may not be as effective.

No half measures
Some people’s skin is more sensitive than others’ and therefore reacts differently to UV rays. This means, without protection some can stay in the sun longer than others without getting sunburnt.
