The scorching heat of the summers is not going away anytime soon. Summer 2022 is upon us, with temperatures soaring high across cities. While wearing easy-breezy clothes is the current fashion trend, one cannot overlook the beauty needs for the season too. A skincare essential that the entire beauty industry swears by is using sunscreens. We cannot emphasise enough on the importance of sunscreens not just in the summers, but throughout the year. We have curated a list of sunscreens for every skin type so that you can protect your skin from the harmful UV radiation without compromising on your skin type and texture.
5 Types Of Sunscreens For Every Skin Type
Mineral sunscreens sit on the topmost layer of the skin and act as a physical barrier by deflecting the UV rays as soon as they reach the skin. Mineral sunscreens are effective as soon as they are applied and hence there is no need to wait.
These sunblock creams take a longer time to be absorbed in the skin and they sit on the deeper layers of the skin. As they take a longer time to get absorbed, you need to apply them in advance before leaving your house and getting into the sun. More re-application is needed when in direct sunlight.
These sunblock creams are recommended for acne-prone oily skin type. The matte, sweat-proof SPF will keep your skin cool and sun-protected. The non-shiny, non-greasy formula will sit comfortably on your skin without leaving a white cast.
4. Powdered Sunscreens
In case you have a very oily skin and matte sunscreens don't work for you, try the powdered sunscreens. The mineral-based powdered sunscreens offer a high-level of spectrum protection and are very lightweight.
The gel-based sunscreen lotions are easily absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin without leaving a white cast over the face. These are recommended for dry skin type as they are easily spread, hydrating and soothes the skin from the harsh sunrays.
You can try a product or two and check what works the best for you. We recommend consulting your dermatologist before starting a new skincare routine. Also conduct patch tests to check for the product's suitability.
