Our expert says:
If I understand you correctly, you are saying that you get sunburned despite using these creams? Remember that sunscreen won't stop you tanning and burning - it just means that, when applied correctly, it protects your skin so that you can stay out longer in the sun before dangerous UV radiation takes effect. But the rule about avoiding the sun between 10am and 3pm in summer (some experts say between 9am and 4pm) applies whether you're wearing sunscreen or not. Hats, long sleeves and sunglasses are also important for protection.
