The SPF, or Sun Protection Factor, of a sunscreen represents how much of the sun's ultraviolet B (UVB) rays the product keeps from reaching your skin. An SPF 15 sunscreen is capable of reflecting or absorbing 93 percent of the total amount of UVB energy in the environment and is the minimum recommendation for protection against skin cancer and sunburn. Sunscreens with lower SPF ratings filter out less UVB radiation and have been shown to help prevent sunburn but not skin cancer or skin aging caused by sun damage. Based on your needs and concerns, you might choose a sunscreen with an SPF level above 15. Your doctor can help you decide.
