Top 12 Sunscreen for Indian Skin

Top 12 Sunscreen for Indian Skin

Hello everyone,

So summers are finally here, I hate summers. I literally go into hibernation in summers. There are many reasons why I hate summers, to name a few, you can’t go out in the summers anywhere during the day time because it is so damn hot, then if you go out you sweat badly, your whole body gets tanned and as I have severe migraine it aggravates my headache if I am in direct sun for a long duration. So these are a few reasons why I hate summers. But sometimes you have to go out due to several reasons and it is then sunscreen comes to our rescue. We have to apply sunscreen when we are indoors too but while going out we have to apply a sunscreen that has a higher SPF so that it protects us from the scorching rays of the sun. In a tropical country like India which is full of pollution and hot sun in the summers, sunblocks or sunscreen are a necessity for everyone.

As this is the most appropriate time of the year to do a post on Top 10 sunscreen for Indian skin so here I am with the Top 12 list. So let’s get started.

  1. Lotus 3-in-1 Matte Look Daily Sunblock SPF 40: This is my go to sunscreen, I just love this one.
