Apply before exposure to the sun. Avoid the intense midday sun. Apply several times to maintain sun protection, particularly after swimming. Apply the sunscreen generously. Applying less reduces the protection for your skin. Protect babies and small children from direct sunlight. Babies and small children should wear protective clothing and sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF higher than 25). Not even sunscreens with high sun protection factors provide complete protection against UV rays. Avoid contact with eyes and textiles; permanent staining is possible.
