HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU APPLY TO GET THE CORRECT SPF COVERAGE?
SPF isn't going to give you the protection that is specifies on the tube unless you are applying enough of the cream to get the coverage you need! Do not skimp on this. Most will end up applying more than they "think" they need!
For your face/neck/tops of ears, a 1/4 tsp of cream will give you the coverage and proper SPF. If you have a larger face/forehead then apply more. *upwards of a 1/2 tsp.
Grab a 1/4 tsp and fill it with your SPF the first time. See how big that dollup is and apply it. Remember that and always use the same amount.
Another great trick to measure is the Finger method. Run a line of sunscreen the entire length of your Middle Finger. = That is a correct amount of coverage. *Do you also have to cover your head? If so, make that 2 fingers worth of product.
We have a few wonderful SPF products here at Platinum. They have full, physical coverage.
This means that we are not using chemicals that soak INTO the skin and can possibly heat and cause pigmentation issues in the future. *The last thing we want to do is cause more issues while we are trying to treat them!
We instead use the physical SPF's of Titanium Dioxide and/or Zinc. These will sit on TOP of the skin (and your products) to reflect away the sun's damaging UV rays.
