I’ve heard that you don’t need more than SPF 15. Is that true?

For fair and very fair-skinned people, an SPF 15, and in many instances an SPF 30, does not provide enough protection on a very sunny day in the summer, especially in southern portions of the U.S.; and remember, the longer you are in the sun, the higher SPF level you need. Don’t forget to bring the sunscreen with you on all-day outdoor activities so that you can reapply.
