Be sun smart: Top 6 Sunscreens Of All Times

Be sun smart: Top 6 Sunscreens Of All Times

Oil-free, high on SPF and good for skin, here are Be for Beauty’s Top 6 Sunscreens Of All Times. These products have been tried and used, over and over again, in the tropical country of India. Not only do they protect you against UVB rays (which is where SPF enters) but UVA rays (PA++) too. We share with you the best 6 sunscreens and sunblocks of all times.

1. Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA++++

Ideal for: Daily Use
Best to avoid: dark spots, tanning, pigmentation
Texture: Oil-Free

Kiehl’s products are usually light on skin. Its light formula intensely moisturises, and offers SPF 50 along with UVA protection and an anti-ageing cover. It also has glycerin and other hydrating ingredients so you can easily apply it on your face before you put on makeup. Rs 2,800.

2. La Roche Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+

Ideal for: Pre-Swimming, Beach Time
Best to avoid: Reddened, Angry Skin
Texture: Oil-Free

Not only is it superbly convenient to apply, thanks to the format, the sunscreen uses a Mexoryl formula (my favourite) and is infused with thermal water, a boon for those of us with sensitive skin. No parabens or fragrance. Please read my full review here. Rs 2,300

3. Vichy Ideal Capital Soleil SPF 50+ 

Ideal for: Daily use on face and body
Best to avoid: Whitening residue
Texture: Ultra Light/Matte Finish

I adore Vichy, and the Capital Soleil Range has been around for years. Vichy Ideal Capital Soleil is updated formula. This mattifying fluid is ideal for combination and oily skin; it absorbs sebum and provides sun protection without leaving white streaks. Rs 1,269.

4. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

Ideal for: Daily use on body
Best to avoid: Whitening residue
Texture: Dry Touch

Neutrogena uses its patent ‘helioplex’ technology promises broad spectrum protection. The sunblock is lightweight, but has a shiny finish. I’ve met a lot of people with sensitive skin who use Neutrogena Dry Touch Sunblock and have had rave reviews about this sunscreen. It’s ideal for those long Indian summers and is affordable too. Rs 499.

5. Lakme Sun Expert SPF 50 PA++ Fairness UV Sunscreen Lotion

Ideal for: Daily use on face and body
Best to avoid: Sun Damage
Texture: A little oily

When it comes to Indian brands, Lakme Sunscreen Lotion is an iconic product we’ve all grown up with. Lakme Sun Expert SPF 50 has zinc/titanium dioxide which will automatically leave a whitish tinge on your skin. But it’s a good sunscreen that will protect you against sun damage (it’s a physical sunscreen).Cucumber and lemongrass extracts moisturise and soften as PA++++ blocks the UVA rays and helps prevent skin damage. Rs 440.

6. Dermalogica Ultra Sensitive Faceblock SPF 25

Ideal for: Daily use on face
Best to avoid: Ageing and irritation
Texture: Super smooth and moisturizing

There are very few sunscreens that can actually be applied to your face minus a shine and Dermalogica Ultra Sensitive Faceblock is one of them. Along with SPF and protecting ingredients, it has antioxidants like Vitamins A, C and E help soothe skin. Rs 1,905.
