That's because it takes at least that long for sunscreen to penetrate the skin and provide the most protection.
You should use a sunscreen with an SPF factor of at least 15, and don't skimp.
If you don't apply enough, the protection level can drop as low as 6. Doctors say it takes about a palm-full to completely protect a child.
