After a chemical peel, laser treatment, or in the case of drug-induced photosensitivity, take medical advice and use a very high Sun Protection Factor (SPF 50+).
Avoid extensive sun exposure, as even sun protection products with high Sun Protection Factors (SPFs) do not offer 100% protection.
Avoid the intense midday sun, which is usually from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Do not expose babies and small children to direct sunlight. Avoid sunburn as this shows that skin is already damaged. Keep children well covered, including a sun hat, t-shirt and sun glasses.
For small children, always use sunscreens with a high or very high Sun Protection Factor (SPF).
Over-exposure to the sun can be a serious health threat. Apply sun protection products generously before sun exposure. Applying an insufficient quantity of sunscreen will reduce the protective effect.
Re-apply sunscreen frequently in order to maintain an adequate level of protection, especially after sweating, swimming or toweling.
