Best Sunscreen available in India
I am back with a new post this weekend.The summers have arrived full fledgedly here in India and the UV Index is at its peak in most parts of the country.Sunscreen is an integral part of one’s skincare routine since lack of it causes premature ageing and hyperpigmentation ,along with sunburn and tan.So here I am sharing the top 10 sunscreens that you could buy and try throughout the summers to keep that tan away and protect your skin from other serious disorders.
This post will guide you through a number of sunscreens,available across a price range and for various skin types too.(Don’t worry we have got all you oily and dry skinned beauties covered too)
1.Lakme 9 to 5 Mattifying Sunscreen SPF 50
Its easy availability and efficacy makes it one of the top rated sunscreens available in the market.It keeps you fresh and glowing throughout the day and is dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, and non-carcinogenic.Not only is its rose gold packaging attractive but this product is perfect for all skin types.
Price -INR 500
2.Avene Very High Protection Emulsion SPF 50+
This sunscreen is probably considered as one of the best in the market across the world.Effective against all types of sun radiation.It has a non greasy texture and is lightweight. The texture is adapted to Indian skin and weather.The product is paraben free and photostable,so you dont have to re-apply it quite often.
Price -INR 1250
3.Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50
This is the perfect sunscreen option for every college going person or the ones on a budget.Gives protection from all types of UV rays, including UVA and UVB.Its not only waterproof and sweatproof,but is suitable for all skin types.The initial application gives a whitecast but it can be easily blended into the skin.
4.L’Oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence SPF 50
This water based sunscreen provides the most non-sticky and lightweight composition in a bottle that leaves no stickiness after application.The SPF is said to provide protection till 12 hours after application(but I’d suggest re-application)
5.Lotus Herbals Safe Sun 3-in-1 Matte-Look Daily Sun Block SPF 40
This has been my most used sunscreen in college.I love the lightweight foundation like appearance which seems to seamlessly blend into the skin without any residue. This works as a tinted moisturizer+sunscreen in one product.It gives a matte,shine-free and clean feel to the skin.Very Affordable.Recommended.
6.Nivea Moisturising Sun Lotion SPF 30
Another great product from the house of Nivea.They generally do great moisturisers but a moisturizer + sunscreen from them came as a great surprise to me and it is quite effective too.It can be easily applied and is water resistant.The vitamin E in it provides premature ageing.
7.La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50
This French pharmacy brand excels in all its skincare product and this sunscreen is no exception.This is designed for skin prone to sun allergies or has sun intolerance.It has a dry touch texture which means double anti-shine action, immediate absorption, ultra-dry finish, no white marks.A bit on the pricier side but totally worth the splurge.
8.Bioderma Photoderm Spot SPF 50
While the Bioderma Micellar Water has been a raved about product,there are still quite a few hidden gems in this brand’s kitty,one of them being this sunscreen.This is milky white in appearance but leaves no oily film or white marks.It is also known to treat hyperpigmentation (brown marks), skin treated by laser, and skin that has undergone a dermatological operation (scarring).
9.VLCC Matte Look Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30
Not only is it lightweight on your pocket,the creamy texture of this cream easily blends with your skin.VLCC aims at making products using natural ingredients so it is completely safe for the skin while providing sun protection.The ergonomic packaging is a bonus which makes it travel friendly.
10.Vichy Ideal Soliel SPF 50 Sunscreen
Capital Soleil range by Vichy provides flawless sun protection technology with tight network of sun-filtering particles, which creates an ultra-resistant film for evenly distributed sun-filtering action on the skin.Its paraben free and enriched with Vichy Thermal water.I find this sunscreen to be ideal for beach holidays.
Price -INR 1200
So,these were the top 10 according to me.Now I would love to know which is your most used sunscreen in summers to prevent sunburn and tanning.
See you next time.Bye bye!!
