SPF (Sun Protection Factor) tells you how effective a sunscreen is at helping protect your skin from sunburn.
Use sun screen appropiate to the sun's strength and length of time spent in it.An SPF of 25 extends the length of time you can stay in the sun safely by 25 times. So 125 minutes in the sun wearing factor 25 would be equivalent to spending five minutes in the sun with no protection.
Stay out of the sun completely if you suffer any degree of sunburn, drink lots of water and apply an aloe Vera gel liberally to help rehydrate the skin.
sit in the sun at all during the hottest part of the day - from around 12:00 to 3 pm.
