We have been told to apply sunscreen religiously during summers. Dermatologists have suggested that one must always apply at least SPF 30. And repeat every 3 hours, when outdoors. Know more about sunscreens and sunblocks by a dermatologist here. But choosing the right sunscreen can be tricky as many factors like skin type, higher SPF and complexion must be considered. Here is a guide that can help you in selecting a sunscreen. But remember, if you have any major skin conditions or allergies, consult with your dermatologist.

1. Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ Review By Srushti Pathak
I bought this sunblock from Nykaa 2 years ago and have been repurchasing and using it religiously. The sunblock is easily absorbed by my skin. I use it on my face and neck. Being PABA free and non-comedogenic, it doesn’t clog my pores. It perfectly suits my combination skin.
The oil-free formula leaves a non-greasy look and gives a matte finish making my skin shine-free.
Price Range: Mid-Priced
Cost: Rs 650
2. Oxybenzone Free Sunscreen Spf 50 Review By Kareen Cardozo
Finding sunscreen is very difficult for me as I have sensitive and acne-prone skin. I recently found Re’equil sunscreen and I must say that they work quite great. It is a broad-spectrum sunscreen for oily/ acne-prone skin. It has SPF 50 and requires only 1 application.
The sunscreen has not caused any breakouts so far which is a huge plus. Although it gives a slight white cast, it disappears within a few minutes. Post application the sunscreen gives a matte finish.
Price Range: Affordable
Cost: Rs 460
3. Episoft AC Sunscreen Review By Dexy Samuel
My doctor recommended this product to me when I was suffering from active acne last year. And this sunscreen works perfectly for me, it is my holy grail. It’s easily available at any medical store. I use this every morning after my skincare routine. I would recommend this to others as it is my dermatologist’s favourite, as well as mine. And is great for acne-prone skin.
The sunscreen is also a moisturizer! It gives me a nice moisturised glow after applying. The formula is watery so it’s easy to blend. Moderate UV protection, dewy glow and 0 white cast!
Price Range: Mid-Priced
Cost: Rs 575
