Facial SPF for all skin types

SPF, or Sun Protection Factor,is a factor that defines how well a sunscreen can protect skin from harmful UVB rays, this kind of radiation can cause sunburn, damages skin, and can cause to skin cancer.

Basically it is used for your skin which would normally burn after 10 minutes in the sun, so after application of an SPF 15 sunscreen can help you to stay in sun without burning for approximately for 150 minutes (a factor of 15 times longer).

This is a rough estimated value that mostly depends on skin type, intensity of sunlight and amount of sunscreen used.
