Sunscreen becomes a vital part of a woman’s make up kit in the hot season. While the market is loaded with various kinds of sunscreens, it is important to pick what suits the best for Indian skin.
SPF, Sun Protection Factor is a direct measure of the amount of sun block one has to use. SPF refers to the theoretical time one can stay in the sun without getting sunburned. So, if it reads SPF15 on the sun block cream, it means that time factor is increased by 15 times and one can stay in the sun for 300 minutes. The same holds good for other numbers that are often seen on the packs in the counters.
The sunscreen helps protect the skin from harmful UV radiation and reducing the chances of skin tan or burn. While the westerners crave for tanned skin and lie for hours together under the burning sun, Indians prefer their level of fair skin and would want to protect the same.
The market is now flooded with various types of sunscreens that one can choose from. Here are a few of them.
