Stay skin safe with these picks for sunscreen this year.

Summer is here and while there’s nothing more fun than lying on a beach and basking in the sun, protecting your skin from UVA and UVB rays is extremely important, no matter your skin colour.
 
So what does SPF – Sun Protection Factor – mean? SPF is the length of time out in the sun before you start to get burned, but all sunscreens should be reapplied as per the directions on the bottle. And remember, you can still get a gorgeous tan without the harmful effects of sun damage. All it takes is a shot glass amount to cover your whole body.
 
Stay protected outside with these easy tips and our top picks for sunscreens:
 
– Apply lotion or the convenient spray formulation at least 30 minutes before going out in the sun.
 
– Make sure to apply it to the back of your neck, ear tips and feet, so you are fully protected.
 
– Re-apply after perspiring or swimming.
 
–  If you have oily or acne-prone skin, choose water-based sunscreen, most suitable for South Asian skin.
