Sunscreen is rated by sun protection factor (SPF), a multiplier of the amount of time the skin can be exposed to the sun before experiencing sunburn. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15.
Even with sunscreen skin can collect damaging radiation. Wear protective clothing and head covering during the midday hours.
