Sunscreen is one skin care product that isn't restricted to age or gender. Individuals of all ages must add it to their routine, especially teenagers as it protects their tender skin from sun damage, photoaging and tanning. Trust us when we say there's no better skin care investment than sunscreen.
Swirlster Says: Get it with the Lotus UV Screen Matte Gel which has gel consistency, a soothing matte finish, SPF 50 and both UVA and UVB protection. It is available for Rs 251 from 315. Shop here.
2. Lip Balm
As lips have no glands of their own, they need external help to stay moisturised. Do so with a lip balm that will protect them from sun rays and keep them free of chapping and flaking, sometimes with a delightful flavour.

Makeup and the right age to use it may be a touchy topic for teenagers so for a special function, a BB cream can do instead. It's much lighter than traditional base makeup and has added benefits like sun protection, making it a smart choice for occasional use which doesn't weigh the skin down.
