Sunscreens work by absorbing, reflecting or scattering ultraviolet light, thereby reducing the amount that reaches the skin. The sun protection factor (SPF) of a sunscreen tells you how much longer you can stay in the sun without burning if you apply the sunscreen. For example, if your child would burn after 20 minutes of sun exposure, applying a sunscreen with a SPF of 15 gives her 15 times the protection. In this example, the child will be protected for up to 5 hours: 20 minutes x 15 SPF = 300 minutes (5 hours).
The FDA recommends that kids use a SPF of 15 or higher to prevent both sunburn and tanning. A SPF of 15 will block about 94 percent of UVB rays and a SPF of 30 will block about 97 percent of UVB. But keep in mind that these SPF ratings do not necessarily mean your child will be protected against the UVA rays that cause cancer and skin damage. SPFs only give a rating of sunburn protection. Your sunscreen should include ingredients that protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
A doze of sunscreen might work...
Well, natural sunscreen has many useful benefits that normal sunscreen does not have. A natural sunscreen for example can provide much vitamins and mineral that are beneficial for your skin in many ways. The regular sunscreen on the other hand can contain many ineffective chemicals and is not as effective as a natural sunscreen. http://www.kitchenstewardship.com/2010/07/20/natural-sunscreen-review-do-mineral-based-sunblocks-work-2/
