How much Sunscreen to apply?
Many Australians apply too little sunscreen before heading outdoors. Knowing how to apply sunscreen is crucial for ensuring your skin is properly protected to help prevent sun damage.
- Firstly make sure you apply your sunscreen 20 minutes before going into the sun.
- Secondly, use approximately 7 NIVEA measuring spoons or 35ml for a full body application to adequately protect your body from sun damage.
Remember to reapply sunscreen lotion every two hours, and immediately after sweating, swimming and towel drying off.
*7 NIVEA teaspoon/35ml recommended for an average adult
Protect your Skin, Love the Beach
We know that reefs are suffering at the hands of global climate change due to rising ocean temperatures, as the stress of warm water causes corals to bleach. In addition, studies have shown that the UV filters Oxybenzone and Octinoxate can have a negative impact on coral reefs. As a result, the Hawaii Reef Bill proposes to ban the two UV filters Oxybenzone and Octinoxate from Jan 2021. The NIVEA SUN range is 100% compliant with the Hawaii Reef Bill.
Octinoxate is also known as Octyl Methoxycinnamate

A chat with Dr. Reto Peirano, Beiersdorf Laboratory Manager for NIVEA Sun
If there's one thing we all know, it's that we shouldn't spend a long time in the sun without sunscreen on. Why is that?
Well, as soon as the skin is exposed to UV rays, harmful substances like free radicals can be developed in cells and this can lead to short, and long-term damage to the skin. To avoid damage, skin possesses its own protective mechanisms which are activated immediately after sun exposure – such as the natural production of the brown pigment melanin, which surrounds the most important part of the cell’s nucleus, like a protective shield and absorbs harmful UV rays and fights free radicals. But melanin builds up very slowly and has a limited potential to work against the sun. That’s why we should certainly be using sunscreen as an additional layer of protection.
