Which one, how often and how much?
SUNSCREENS can be just a little bewildering to an Irish person raised on a diet of heavy clouds, rain, and all-too-brief periods of sunshine, followed, in quick succession, by all-too-painful bouts of sunburn.
What do you buy? Spray, pump action or old-fashioned bottle? How much do you spread and how often do you spread it? How much do you need to spend to make sure you don’t turn a lurid shade of lobster pink the moment the sun breaks out from behind the clouds?
And will the most expensive bottle in the most upmarket department store keep you safer than the cheap as chips bottle from a budget supermarket?
