One day sun creams

Postby Olivia Rendall on Wed May 10, 2017 12:51 pm

I am planning to go on a holiday later this year and have been looking into sun creams that last for the whole day. However i am sceptical about whether or not these sun creams do in fact last all day.

What are your thoughts on the one day only sun creams? Are there any sun creams that you know of that last all day?

You make a good point. All day sunscreens only provide real protection if they actually stay on the skin. In practice when many people put sunscreen on they are quite active outdoors and the cream really stays on for the whole day. Therefore I think such falls sense of protection
