ARUJ SAYS: The best way to check the lifespan of sun cream is to look for an open jar or hourglass symbol displayed on the sun cream bottle. For example, if you see the symbol 12M, this indicates the number of months you can use the product from when it was first opened. An hourglass symbol indicates that it has 30 months to be used regardless of whether it has been opened or not. If sun cream is used after the expiry date, then the active ingredients can become ineffective and will not provide a reliable form of sun protection. DO: Shield sunburned skin from direct sunlight until the skin has fully healed. DO: Wear loose clothing or highly woven fabric that won’t let light pass through. DON’T: Exfoliate until the skin has healed – this includes washcloths and cleansing brushes. DON’T: Place ice or ice packs directly on sunburned skin. Instead, wrap ice in a cloth before applying to the affected area. Q: How long does sun cream last?
