Apply before sunbathing. Avoid the intense midday sun. Apply several times to maintain sun protection particularly after swimming. Apply the suntan lotion generously. Applying less reduces the protection for your skin. Protect babies and small children from direct sunshine. Dress babies and small children in protective clothes and use suntan lotions with a high sun protection factor (greater than 25). Even suntan lotion with a high SPF does not guarantee complete protection from UV radiation. Avoid contact with the eyes and textiles; permanent staining is possible.
