Glamour looked into the trend for very high factor sunscreen of SPF100 with expert advice from Dr Ross Perry on whether it is worth going for a higher factor protection.

The feature headlined:

Celebrities and A-list skincare experts swear you should be using SPF 100 for the best skin
You’ll be slathering it on in no time.

Studies have shown that most people don’t use sunscreen as tested by the manufacturers, so on that basis, a higher SPF could help to improve the protection.

Nicole Kidman has publicly said that she opts for SPF 100 in her daily skin protection regime, telling Allure:

“I’m outside a lot and love exercising outdoors, but I don’t like the sun on my skin because it’s very fair. My parents have also had skin cancer, so I have to be really, really careful — I use the SPF 100. I know it sounds like a lot, but it isn’t. I use it on my kids. I use it on myself. I’ve always had to do that.”

SPF 100 vs Other SPFs

Dr Ross Perry told Glamour readers that there is actually very little difference between SPF 100 and SPF 50. He explains:

“The overall difference in UVB protection between an SPF 100 and SPF 50 is really marginal and confusing for consumers as they seem to think it offers double the protection which is in fact not true.

“Properly applied SPF 50 sunscreen blocks 98% of UVB rays.

“When used correctly, sunscreen with SPF values in the range of 30 to 50 will offer adequate sunburn protection, even for people with pale skin and this should still be applied frequently.”
