6 Best Sunscreens Available In India (Say Bye to Sunburn and Tanning)

by - April 25, 2017



Applying Sunscreen is one of the most important step in our daily skincare regimen... One should never miss applying a good SPF sunscreen on regular basis just to avoid the harsh sun ray . There is a myth which settles in our mind that sunscreen is only requires during summer season which is absolutely wrong...  We have to apply sunscreen throughout the year even in rainy season as well.

Sunscreens has SPF (Sun Protection Factor) which helps to protect our skin from harmful Ultra Violet (UV) rays...  For Indian climate SPF30-40 is sufficient...  Higher SPF won't work properly...  And it has recommended that never go over SPF 75.. 



UV ray is actually of three types i.e. UVA, UVB and UVC.  UVA causes premature ageing, skin wrinkles, photosensitivity, skin cancer, pigmentation, etc.. While UVB is responsible for discoloration, tanning, etc...  And UVC get absorbed by the ozone layer and don't reach to earth's surface.  Hence we never skip applying a good sunscreen if we are stepping out or inside home..   And one more important thing is while choosing a sunscreen, don't forget to check the terms Multi-Spectrum, Broad-spectrum, UVA/UVB protection...  

Well, today I am going to share six of my favorite sunscreens which I swear by completely...  All these are affordable and easily available... 

Let's start... 


1- LOTUS HERBALS SAFE SUN 3-IN-1 MATTE LOOK DAILY SUN BLOCK PA+++ SPF-40 :

This is one of the best sunscreens available in Indian market...  This is a tinted moisturizer with both UVA and UVB protection and it has also skin lightening formula ...  I am using this since I was in college...  This sunscreen provides a nice matte finish even look.  It is quickly absorbed by skin and not feeling greasy or heavy at all... It suits all skin type but a boon for oily and acne prone skins...  I personally love it so much...

Price - Rs245/- for 50gm.

2- NEUTROGENA ULTRASHEER DRY TOUCH SUN BLOCK SPF-50+ PA+++ : (Reviewed HERE)

This is my second favorite among all sunscreens..  I am already on my fifth tube...  It provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection to skin...  It also has good moisturising ability, I normally skip my regular moisturiser with it...  It gets absorb into skin quickly and very light weight as well...  No greasy feeling, no stickiness, nothing...  Again it suits all skin type...

Price - Rs499/- for 88gms.


3- PLUM CHAMOMILE & WHITE TEA SHEER MATTE DAY CREAM SPF-50 :

It is another best one in sunscreens.. Plum is a wellknown brand  in skincare products and this sunscreen is a hit .. It has Chamomile which soothes and calms skin during and after sun exposure. It has White tea which is rich of anti-oxidant . It has also Gingko Biloba and Olive leaf extracts which protects skin from radical damage. The sunscreen is very light weight and spreads on skin so smoothly and doesn't leave any white cast on face. It gives a nice matte finish look. And most important thing is, it is paraben and other harm chemicals free.

Price - Rs520/- for 60gm.




4- LOREAL PARIS UV PERFECT EVEN COMPLEXION SPF 50 :

This sunscreen has such high SPF 50 which help skin from sun damaging and with that it also protect skin from pollution which makes skin dull and dry. It lasts long the whole day and keeps skin hydrated and rejuvenate for almost 12 hours as it claims. I must say it is a great buy for dry or very dry skin types.

Price - Rs525/- for 30ml.


5- VLCC NATURAL SCIENCES SWEAT FREE SUN BLOCK LOTION SPF 40 :

VLCC sunscreen lotion has SPF 40 with PA+++ which is a blend of comfrey plant extracts and various other natural ingredients that protect skin from harmful UV rays. It has sweat free formula and is best for preventing tanning and sun burn. It is affordable and a best option for normal to combination skin.

Price - Rs340/- for 100gm.

6- LAKME 9 TO 5 HYDRATING SUPER SUNSCREEN SPF 50 PA+++ : 

It is my winter favourite sunscreen.. Its strong sun protection factor keeps my skin protected from UVA and UVB rays for around 6-7 hours easily and along with that it keeps hydrated my skin for a long hour.. It doesn't feel sticky or greasy at all. It spreads on skin evenly and absorbs quickly . It is very light weight on skin and I love it as a daily moisturiser in winter.

Price - Rs525/- for 30ml.
