Minimum Amount of Sun Cream Required to Protect Your Skin Sufficiently

The Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA) today advised consumers to check that their sun creams are not past their safe usage date; contain the appropriate protection and to always apply at least the recommended amount of product for best protection. The HPRA states that as skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in Ireland, sun creams can provide important protection when used correctly.  To ensure that sun creams provide protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays, it is urging consumers to carefully read the label on their product’s packaging so they are best informed to maximise its effectiveness.
