"I heard about it maybe three or four years go at the American Academy of Dermatology meeting", Dr. Love said. Researchers set up free sunscreen dispensers at the Minnesota State Fair and observed 2,187 people using them over the course of 93 hours.

Looks like cheaper sunscreens can give better sun protection than some big expensive brands, reveals a new watchdog investigation.

Many of us love the beach and we know that sunscreen is a must.

SPF or sun protection factor is a measure of the protection from ultraviolet B or UVB rays, which a sunscreen lotion offers the human skin.

However, after that 5 hours is reached, it is recommend to seek shade rather than apply more sunscreen.

A common mistake in using spray-on versus rub-in sunscreen is that many users believe they do not need to rub it in.

Keep in mind as you shop around that although it most often refers to mineral sunscreens, "natural" is "not a term that dermatologists use" when referring to sunscreen, as Smith previously told HuffPost, nor is the term legally regulated in personal care products.

- SPF 30 effectively filters out close to 97% of harmful rays.

The U.S. -based non-profit organization also determined the best sunscreen lotions available in the market, which offer great protection against the sun's UVA and UVB rays. The leading cause of sunburn is the damage done to the skin's outer layer by UVB rays.

Fact: Although makeup and facial moisturizers with sunscreens have adequate SPF levels, the products typically don't provide the same amount of protection because they are generally not reapplied. It's recommended to use at least one teaspoon to each body part 15 to 30 minutes before going outside. Those with sensitive skin also should avoid sunscreens that contain fragrance, oils and para-aminobenzoic acid, also known as PABA.

The "personal care products council" - which represents the sunscreen industry - disagreed with the findings -- writing in a statement: "It appears that Consumer Reports' testing methods are not consistent with those used by FDA, and therefore are not the same testing as required by the product manufacturers to assign the SPF designation". "The problem with free sunscreen is that it is one of those gifts that requires you to do something, like giving someone a pet as a birthday present".
