Do I need a SPF higher than 24?

Most defintely!!!! I tan very easily and hardly ever burn using only an 8! I took several bottles of 30 and we used it all! We used 45 on our faces and still got "pink" The sun is extremely strong this time of year......saw MANY people with sun blisters/poisoning from not using a high enough SPF!

Don't forget the ears! That's where my golfing uncle developed his patches of melanoma.

Our friend is bald (by choice) he uses 45 and sometime even with that he burns. So he wears a cap.He say it's very painful when he burns.So apply a lot often. Good luck

My boyfriend used SPF 45 all over while we were in Punta Cana for 9 days and he still managed to get a little sunburn....He is bald as well because he shaves his head.....

Just make sure you reapply also....
