Celltone: Are You Applying Enough Sunscreen?


Are You Applying Enough Sunscreen?

Applying sunscreen is one thing, making sure that you have actually applied sufficient sunscreen is an entirely different matter.  Most people think that a quick squeeze of sunscreen rubbed onto the face and body will miraculously keep your skin safe and protected all day.

The truth is that in order to achieve the Sun Protection Factor (SPF – the filter that protects against the sun’s UVB radiation) reflected on the bottle of sunscreen, you should use approximately 2mg of sunscreen per square centimetre to the exposed areas of the face and body. This means applying the equivalent of a shot glass (ie two tablespoons) of sunscreen to the exposed areas of skin – with a dollop the size of a R2 coin being for the face alone.

Celltone has adopted the phrase ‘the Celltone 6’ which means 2 squeezes for the face & neck, 2 squeezes for the arms and 2 squeezes for the legs.

It is also important to remember that sunscreen needs to be reapplied every two hours, and more frequently after swimming, heavy perspiration or drying your skin with a towel.

Adult Sunscreen SPF30 – R179.99
SPF50 – R199.99
SPF50 Waterproof – R199.99
Kiddies Waterproof SPF50 – R249.99
Baby Sunscreen SPF50 – R179.99
No matter how much sunscreen you apply, an SPF of 30 or higher is preferable, especially if you are spending an extensive amount of time outdoors.
And remember: in addition to using sunscreen, look for shade, wear sun protective clothing, broad-brimmed hats and UV blocking sunglasses to protect your eyes.

Have a lovely, and safe summer!

The range’s hero product, the legendary Celltone Gel contains snail gel extract – which became a global skincare phenomenon after workers harvesting snails discovered their hands became softer, smoother and younger looking.
