Because the rule is "padding instead of spilling": According to experts, an 1.80-meter adult needs about three tablespoons of sun protection to properly cure his whole body. That's about 40 milliliters. If it is then considered that sunscreens should be applied regularly after creams after sweating or swimming, a bottle of 200 ml should be reached for a maximum of five days.
