How to Use Sunscreen in Summers
Summers means sun, and sun brings tanning, sunburns, uneven skin tone, dryness, and dullness to your skin. Here we give you some useful tips on how to use a sunscreen for maximum benefit.
- Whenever you step out of your home, apply sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and more, it requires some time to set, so apply it 15-20 minutes prior to going out. Reapply it after every 3-4 hours.
- Always use waterproof sunscreen with at least a 30 SPF so that it stays on your skin. People with oily skin should use a gel-based sunscreen to avoid stickiness, while those with dry and combination skin, should use matte-finish sunscreen lotion. For people with sensitive skin, consult your dermatologist to choose right kind of sunscreen.
- First, apply sunscreen on your skin, and then your day cream, foundation or BB cream. Sunscreen should form a protective layer between your skin and outer environment.
- Avoid the sun when it is on your head, i: e 10 Am – 4 PM, use protective gears like hat/cap, umbrella and sleeves before stepping out.
