What is SPF in Sunscreens?

SPF or Sun Protection Factor is the number that tells how well the sunscreen lotion will protect the skin from UVB rays, which damage the skin, cause sunburn and can even contribute to skin cancer. Higher the SPF number, the greater is the amount of protection provided. It is recommended to use sunscreens with at least SPF 15. If users have ever suffered from cancer, they should use a sunscreen lotion with even a higher SPF.
