If you think wearing sunscreen is only important when you’re out of the house in the summer, you need to think again. Sunscreen is not a product that you should limit to the sweltering months. In fact, it should be in your bag throughout the year. You may wonder why it actually matters and which sunscreen is the best. We have the answers!
Applying sunscreen is a healthy skincare habit that you should follow, regardless of the weather. And if you have completely ditched sunblock because you are indoors these days, you really should pick it up right away. Even when you are indoors, your skin needs to be shielded from the light emitted by your laptop and phone screens. Therefore, a sunscreen that has a broad spectrum of protection for your skin is the safest and healthiest option.
Now, if you are confused which sunscreen to pick, here is what Team All About Eve uses and recommends.
1. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 55
Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer sunscreen is one of the best formulas for sun protection. It is very light on the skin and has a non-greasy formula that is absorbed quickly. It feels fresh, gives great coverage, and leaves a matte finish without clogging pores. And with an SPF of 50+, it gives a broad spectrum of sun protection to your skin.
2. Biotique Bio Sandalwood Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion, SPF 50+
This is one of the best sunscreens for oily skin as it is light and water-resistant. Unlike some other sunscreens that can make your face look oily and clog pores, this one works like a charm. Made of natural ingredients, it smells and feels great on the skin. And it is perfect to wear on those scorching days as it prevents sweating.
3. L’Oreal Paris UV Perfect Super Aqua Essence SPF 50+ PA++++ Long UVA
As the name suggests, L’Oreal Paris’ sunscreen has a water-based formula that absorbs quickly into the skin. Not only does it protect your skin from the harsh sun rays, it also provides a radiant glow to your face. Light on the skin with long-lasting protection, this one is a winner.
4. La Shield Sunscreen Gel SPF 40 P+++
With a gel-like consistency, and no preservatives, added fragrance or colours, this sunscreen gives you a broad spectrum of protection. It protects your skin from both UVA and UVB rays, is dermatologically tested, and suits every skin type. It absorbs quickly into the skin and gives a matte finish all day long.
5. BIODERMA Photoderm Max Cream SPF 50+
Perfect for a combination skin type, Bioderma’s Photoderm Max Cream is the perfect balance of sheer and glowy. It gives high protection to the skin and absorbs quickly into it. Highly recommended by Team AAE!
6. Zscreen Zinc Oxide Sunscreen Gel, SPF 58 PA+++
Highly water-resistant, this sunscreen offers a broad spectrum of coverage and protection to the skin. It’s non-comedogenic, chemical-free, leaves a matte finish, and has a non-greasy formula which is best suited for sensitive skin. The non-white appearance and silky smooth texture leaves the skin healthy and safe from the harsh rays of the sun.
7. Innisfree Intensive Triple Care Sunscreen SPF50+ PA+++
Enriched with the goodness of sunflower oil and Jeju green tea extracts, Innisfree’s sunscreen is hydrating and protects your skin. Its water-resistant and smooth formula lasts all day long without clogging your pores. Not only does it protect your skin from harsh rays, it also brightens and prevents premature signs of ageing.
Don’t forget to wear your sunblock, whether you’re stepping out or staying home.
