Did you know that sunscreen should be worn even when you are indoors or in a car and that even when it is a cloudy day or a rainy day? Most of us are unaware of the facts that UVA rays and UVB rays don’t just cause tanning or sunburn, but these rays can also cause premature ageing of skin, dullness and even lead to skin cancer. Most of us just neglect how important sunscreen are specially during summers. In a tropical country like India, the importance of using sunscreen is even higher and even on a shady day one should not skip using sunscreen. Also, it is a big misconception that a sunscreen can be substituted with makeup with SPF. Further, we sometimes use sunscreen as a moisturiser and thus don’t apply it in an adequate quantity. If you learn a little about the importance of sunscreen for our skin, you will add it in your daily skin regime.

The next important thing is to choose the best sunscreen from the vast variety and brands that are available in the market. We all have different skin type, texture and exposure to sun. There are some who have more field work and they tend to remain in sun more than others and thus need a sunscreen which has more SPF and is sweat proof. Then there are people who are swimmers etc., an ordinary sunscreen will wash off and will not be of much good to them. Some people stay more indoors and they are less exposed to direct rays. It becomes difficult for people to choose which sunscreen will suit them the best and most of the times end up using the wrong one. Often, we spend too much on the expensive ones still we see no good results.
