Haute List: A Guide To Picking The Right Sunscreen For Your Skin This Summer

By  | 

The garmi ka mausam is here and as much as we all like the summer fashion, this weather just isn’t nice to our skin! The sun is shining and it’s practically burning up outside and with the increasing heat and stronger UV rays, we all need to protect our skin. But wait, this doesn’t mean staying cooped up inside the house in AC ki thandi hawa. We all need Vitamin D while making sure that the UV rays don’t damage our skin beyond repair. But how do you pick the right sunscreen to suit your usage and skin needs? With all the different kinds of formulas and brands, it can be really difficult to select one that suits your skin the best. But fret not because we’ve got your back. I’ve put together a list of the best sunscreens and formulas you can slather on during the summer ki garmi.

Here Are The 10 Best Sunscreens To Pick From

1. Non-Sticky Hydrating Sunblock

The summer season also means sweat, dryness and skin problems. This is why we all need this hydrating sunscreen from Aqualogica. It is an SPF 50 sunscreen with water-lock technology and blue light protection and it is non-sticky. It has coconut water, aloe vera and hyaluronic acid among other nourishing ingredients.
