As many as 2,200 beauticians working at different salons took part in the workshop that went on for 30 minutes.
Later, they all applied sunscreen simultaneously to show their support for the protection of skin against skin cancer and other skin-related issues.
We thought a world record is a perfect way to bring the community together to educate them about it.” R Priyamani, a participant, who owns a salon said, “What was new is how and when to apply it.
We were told one must apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before stepping out in the sun for getting desirable results.
Also, if you are outside, you must reapply sunscreen every two hours.” The previous Guinness World Record for the most people applying sunscreen simultaneously was 1,822 — achieved by the Ann’s Hope Foundation (USA) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, on May18, 2014.
