Sun protection is also dependent on your own skin type. And above all, the sun protection is only given in full, if enough product is applied. Recommended are 2 mg/cm2 for one application, which means, for example, about 1 finger length of sun cream for the face or 2-3 tablespoons of product for an average adult’s body.
