?Question: If you are not out in the sun, spf is not critical. When you are out in the sun, i believe more than a pea-size amount of sunscreen would suffice to provide you with adequate protection. Apply the sunscreen to all areas or exposed skin to achieve maximum benefit and read the label regarding the need to re-apply. Best wishes.
