Many skin care junkies vouch for the fact of wearing sunscreen every day. Heading outdoors? Wear sunscreen! Are you lounging indoors maybe near that window? Wear that sunscreen. Many do flock towards K-beauty sunscreens but little do they know that some of the K-beauty sunscreens won’t work well for our Desi Indian summers. Of course, one needs to take into account the weather of your city and how humid or volatile that could get. Let’s talk about which face and body sunscreens can be your potential holy grail find this season. .

1) Dr. Sheths Ceramide and Vitamin C Sunscreen

This new launch by Dr Sheths is a hybrid sunscreen. It has a light cream consistency and doesn’t leave that annoying white cast at all. This sunscreen is packed with nourishing ingredients that are specially formulated for Indian skin. Just a word of caution here, this one is not recommended to use during pregnancy.

2) UV Doux Sunscreen Gel/ Lotion

If you have combination skin then your skin will welcome this sunscreen gel with gusto. The gel consistency blends well but could leave a white cast trail if one proceeds to apply a second layer. Oh! Did we tell you that this sunscreen will give you a primer like finish? Win-win situation!

3) Episoft AC moisturizer SPF 30

Body sunscreen recommendation?! Here it is! This moisturizing lotion with SPF 30 blends like a breeze and is very easy to apply. Grab this whenever heading outdoors. It does offer broad-spectrum protection against both ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays.

4) Re’equil Ultra Matte Dry Touch

This sunscreen has a mousse-like texture. It proves to be water-resistant and definitely does the job right. That matte finish is just right and can be worn indoors and outdoors.

While choosing your sunscreen make sure you get the one that promises adequate protection and suits your lifestyle well. There are tinted sunscreens in the market as well that can help you in protecting against the blue light.
