Top tip: always apply your SPF last so your other skincare products can be absorbed and get to work! Luckily for you sun seekers, at Superdrug, you’ll find a wide selection of sun creams including household brands like Nivea sun cream factor 15, classic sun creams perfect for the whole family and non-greasy sprays and formulas for on-the-go top ups. We have a protection level and formula suitable for all! You may be thinking ‘does SPF15 do anything’? Well, the answer is yes! If you are planning on spending a short period of time in the sun, SPF15 is perfectly fine! SPF means ‘sun protection factor’ and the number before it indicates how long the suns UVB rays would take to redden your skin. So, for brief outings, or with regular top ups, factor 15 sun cream can help prevent your skin from getting sore in the sun! For you sun chasers and bronzed beauties out there, if you’re wondering ‘can you get a tan with SPF 15?’ Again, the answer is yes! When sun cream is used as intended, you can still work on that gorgeous golden glow while keeping your skin protected. The key is to use a broad-spectrum SPF15 or above (so that’s a sun cream that protects from both UVA and UBV rays) to protect your delicate skin from premature ageing and burning but remember to take regular shade breaks.
