Know Your SPF# For Your Skin Type

A woman's body with a bad case of sunburn.

Hopefully on this Memorial Day Holiday you and your family will be out and about in this beautiful sunshine maybe at the parade or cooking out or at the pool or having a great day in the park or at some exotic island ( :~\ mad face, I wish I was on a island) …We just wanted to remind you to be protected.

People burn at different rates, even within the same skin type, so you must decide if you are more or less sensitive to sun exposure and take appropriate measures.
To be on the safe side, always reduce by half the stated protection on any product (for instance, if a product says it has an SPF of 8, only count on its being a 4. If you need an 8, get a 16.)

This chart will give you the recommended SPF for your skin color.
Albino. Tan type: none. Red sunburn with pain, swelling and peeling. SPF 50.
White. Tan type: as above. Great risk of freckles. SPF 50.
Fair. Tan type: very light after minor pink or red burns. Some risk of freckles. SPF 30.
Fair. Tan type: light. Slight risk of freckles. SPF 30.
Slightly dark. Tan type: dark. SPF 30.
Slightly dark. Tan type: dark, with less risk of sunburn. SPF 15-20.
Dark. Tan type: very dark. SPF 8-15
Black. Tan type: black. SPF 8.

Know your sun protection number. My SPF# is 30…( 50 if I was on an exotic island :~>) what is yours?? See what your SPF# is for your skin type and please feel free to post your # I would love to know.
