Apart from only settling for a factor-30+ sunscreen this summer, what else should you know about this powerful weapon against the sun's rays?

Take action:

Always shake your bottle of sunscreen before using it; rub it in well to ensure even coverage; when applying sunscreen to your face, first rub it into your hands before applying it; wait ten minutes before having a swim, or the sunscreen will just wash off; and reapply it after swimming, drying off with a towel or sweating.
