Do I Need Sunscreen With More Than 30 SPF?

11 Aug

Short answer: No

Sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of 30 block about 97% of ultraviolet rays,

While sunscreens with an SPF of higher than 30 block 97%-98%

It’s more important that you choose “broad-spectrum” sunscreen, meaning it protects against both UVB and UVA rays.

sunbathers also need to apply a generous amount of sunscreen in order to get the full benefit of the SPF.
