Recommended products

To get the proper benefits of your sun cream make sure you follow the product's instructions.

Please note: This recommendation is the minimum that should be used and is based on spending a 'sensible' amount of time in the sun - that's up to a couple of hours. It also includes a 'margin of safety' compared to the National Protection Level calculation. Boots recommends using at least SPF 15 whenever you are in the sun but if in doubt, go for a higher SPF. Remember to take to the shade when the sun is hottest, between 11am and 3pm in the UK. Don't forget your hat and sunglasses too.
