Research shows 85% of Australians don’t apply enough sunscreen to prevent UV from damaging their skin.

For the parts of your body not covered by clothing, hats and sunglasses, apply sunscreen using these tips:

  • Apply sunscreen to any exposed skin at least 20 minutes before you go outside.
  • Most adults should use at least 7 teaspoons of sunscreen for one full body application to cover exposed skin properly. Use our SunScreen calculator below to help you.
  • Reapply sunscreen every two hours or more frequently if swimming or sweating. Remember to bring sunscreen with you.
