I was told you need at least 15. The more fair skinned you are the higher the S P F (sun protection factor)
And the only way to know is trial and error

Doctors recommend an SPF of at least 15.  I try to use SPF30 because I have light skin.  They also recommend that you have protection from both types of rays.

An spf 15 is recomended for those who visit the sun for short periods of time. The longer the time/and often determine what you should use. If you work in the sun everyday you should use the highest value. Water resistant spf available. Wide brim hats help also.

I am glad I wasn't a brat about that answer, because I am very tired, and my mind is working overtime again. Lol

They recommend at least 15. They also recommend blocking  UVA and UVB rays, not just one type. I try to use SPF30 because I have very light skin.

They recommend 18 or higher and you should reapply it according to the guidelines on the bottle.

It is the time of the white nights in Alaska right now? How do you sleep during those times? I'd go NUTS!
