Numbers On My Sunscreen

What do all those numbers on my sunscreen mean? This was my question when I visited my dermatologist last week. My doctor said that the SPF number that I see, signifies the gravity of protection; thus the higher the number, the more is the skin is being protected from the destructive effect of the Ultraviolet Blue Ray of the Sun. This is the reason why my dermatologist recommended that I use sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30.

Furthermore, my dermatologist told me that no matter how powerful my sun-block is, there is a constant need for me to reapply every two hours. I told her I plan to frolic in the sunshine this summer at Borra and perhaps at El Nino Palawan beach. “With more reasons”, she said that I should fully protect my skin. I need to find a sweat-proof, waterproof, and broad spectrum sunscreen and I am going to start finding that item in the mall or inside my favorite cosmetic shop.
