Best Sunscreen for the Indian Summers!

Best Sunscreen for Indian Summer!

Thanks to global warming and the ever-increasing ozone hole, sunscreens have become the must ingredient in your daily skincare routine. Whether you are indoors or outdoors it is necessary to put on sun protectant. As Indians, we have a higher amount of melanin pigments in our skin. The very pigments which give us our wheat-like complexion minimize our risk for skin cancer. However, that does not mean we are at liberty to skip sunscreen. Harmful rays from the sun cause premature aging, fine lines, pigmentation, and skin cancer. Technically an SPF of 30 to 50 is sufficient for the Indian skin. SPF 15 protects from 92% of UV rays. SPF 30 protects from 95% of the UV rays and SPF 50 protects from 98%. The PA +++ usually means that the sunscreen protects from both UVA and UVB rays. For the Indian summers specifically, using waterproof sunscreen can be beneficial, as the constant sweating may cause the sunscreen to wash away. We have saved you all trouble and compiled a list of the best sunscreen for the Indian summers.
