Top Sunscreens for All Indian Skin – Review & Buying Tips

Summer is on the way that means you need to gear up with right kind of skin protection. As the sun is brightest during this season, most of us end up with tanned skin every time we step out of our house. Not only tanned skin but the scorching sun also has other negative effects on our skin. So, it is necessary we choose quality sunblock for our skin type.



So, how will you choose the correct sunscreen for your skin type?

While purchasing a sunscreen from the market most of us only check out SPF range. But we should also check out the consistency of the sunscreen. For example, if you are oily skinned then you should go for powdery and gel-based sunscreen, and if you are dry-skinned then you should use the creamy ones!

According to skin specialists, SPF 15 is the ideal sunscreen for Indian skin tone! This range doesn’t allow 95-97% of sun rays to directly affect our skin. However, the sunblock must be applied every 2-3 hours to save facial skin from maximum damage.

Here a short guide on selecting the right sunscreen according to skin type:

For Normal Skin Type: If you have normal skin type then you are lucky as this skin type is the least problematic. The skin tissues are devoid of excess oil, the skin is smooth and has good blood circulation. So, normal skinned beauties should go for cream-based sunblocks and if there is a slight oiliness, you may simply use some tissue to get rid of the excess oil.

For Oily Skin Type –  Oily skinned is called one of the most problematic skin types. The face contains excess oil which is generally accumulated near the cheek, nose and forehead region. This gives a greasy and shiny look! Moreover, oily skin also has larger skin pores which lead to acne problems. So, the oily skinned beauties should go for a gel or aqua-based sunblock. This has a drying effect which reduces the greasy look.

Dry Skin: Dry skin contains a low level of sebum which makes it sensitive. This skin type resembles a parched look with an inability to retain moisture. The skin feels tight and uncomfortable after washing unless moisturized! Dry skinned should apply lotions and moisturizer which contains SPF for the best result.
