How long can different skin types stay in the sun?
Pale and interesting
If you have skin type 1 or 2 – pale skin, blond or red hair - your skin is likely to be sensitive to the sun. By applying NIVEA Sun Protect & Moisture Moisturising Sun Spray SPF 50 and covering up, you can stay out in the sun 50 times as long as without sunscreen.
For women with olive skin and darker hair, the skin is likely to be more resilient to skin damage. While you still need to protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays with a sun lotion such as NIVEA Protect & Moisture Moisturising Sun Lotion SPF 30, you are more likely to tan than to burn.
Dark skin radiance
While you are the least likely to burn in comparison to other skin types, exposure to the sun can still cause sun damage. Applying an SPF sun lotion will help to both protect your skin from damage caused by sun exposure and reduce the risk of skin cancer.
You may have pale skin but do not fit into the Caucasion category. You sometimes tan but usually burn and have dark hair and green or brown eyes. Applying a high factor sunscreen is essential, but it is also a good idea to seek shade especially between 11am – 3pm.
