- Apply the sun care product before exposure to the sun, and reapply at least every 2 hours.
The use of sun care products is not meant to extend the time you can be exposed to the sun. As such, no matter the level of protection selected (low, medium, high, or very high), in order to ensure constant protection, it is imperative to reapply the product at least every two hours and after each time you go in the water, when you are sweating, and after drying off with a towel.
- Limit the length of your exposure to the sun, especially during the first few days.
It is preferable that you expose yourself to the sun progressively and avoid sun exposure during the brightest time of the day. In addition to this sun protection, you should also use protective clothing, sunglasses with filtered lenses, and a hat or even a beach umbrella.
- Apply a generous amount of the sun protection product.
An insufficient application significantly reduces the level of protection against UV rays.
- Do not expose babies or children to direct sun.
