    Default Getting sunburn after using UV protection

    hi I am 25 years old girl from nepal. i have a serious problem of sweating. I am using a moisturising lotion with SPF 15 for UV protection. However, despite my efforts, I usually end up getting sunburn as I sweat out the lotion in no time. What are the options you can give to me? Please help.

    You can try some few tips that might help you:
    Always use mild face wash to wash your face.
    Always use cold water.
    Use sunscreen with at least SPF 30 or more.
    Before applying sunscreen, rub a piece of ice on your skin. Do not apply directly, use cotton or a thin cloth.

    If a lotion doesn't work, try a cream with UV protection. A cream should work better.

    If you find yourself nursing a sunburn, the following tips can help relieve the redness and discomfort. (Be sure to see your doctor if you experience severe pain, blistering, or excessive swelling).
    Soak in oatmeal:
    To relieve the itchiness of dried, sunburned skin, add one cup of colloidal oatmeal (sold in drugstores) to a tub full of cool water. then soak for 15 minutes.
    Ease the pain with E:
    Take 400 IU of vitamin E every four hours (while awake) for one day, starting immediately after getting a sun burn. The d-alpha-tocopherol form of the vitamin works best. Studies have shown vitamin E (d-alpha-tocopherol) contains an amino acid that reduce skin damage caused by sunburn.

    As one of the other posters has mentioned, SPF 15 is not enough to protect skin; one with a minimum SPF of 30 and one with a minimum PPD of 10.

    One sunscreen I know of that is very hard-wearing is La Roche Posay Anthelios Dermo-Pediatric SPF50+ Lotion; made with active children in mind. Its SPF (protection against UVB) is above 50, and its PPD (protection against UVA) is 28, which is fantastic.

    You still may need to reapply when needed.

    LPR makes many high SPF and PPD sunscreens, some of the best, if your skin can tolerate and wear chemical sun filters.

    I suggest just use mild lotion with UV protection and avoid creams as well for they will just be the root cause of sweating. Instead there are natural methods like putting cornstarch and baby powder, these can absorb the sweating.
