May experience the same symptoms after 450 minutes of sun exposure. Based on the normal skin tolerance time multiplied by an SPF that provides up to 30 times more protection from the sun.UFABET  

However, the effectiveness of SPF values ​​in actual sunscreens may be lower than the values ​​obtained in the laboratory. Which depends on various factors such as the duration of sun exposure. Time of sun exposure, environment, season, weather, intensity of sunlight, and contact with sweat or water.

However, using sunscreen is still very beneficial in the long run. Especially in Thailand where the sun is strong. Using sunscreen may help prevent skin health problems and skin cancer. Which can be dangerous to health.
