Low sun protection factor

We all know how important it is to put on sunscreen when we spend time outdoors, but can you get away with products with a low sun protection factor (SPF)? A large Swedish study recently showed that people who use sunscreen with a factor higher than 15 have a 33% lower risk of getting skin cancer (melanoma) compared to those using lower SPF sunscreen. Considering that the incidence of melanoma is increasing worldwide, that’s definitely a finding to take heed of the next time you head out into the sun.
