Sun Protection Factor Calculator



Although you usually tan, your skin can still burn in the sun.

When the sun is strongest (between 11am - 3pm in Northern Ireland) seek the shade and cover up with a T-shirt, hat and sunglasses.

When exposed to prolonged sun locally or on sunny holidays, wear sunscreen with SPF 15-25 and 4 or 5 star rating. Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before going out in the sun and reapply every 2 hours.
