Most Important thing to keep in mind while purchasing and using any sunscreen :

  • No matter how expensive or low cost the sunscreen is, it differs from person to person on how it is going to react on your skin. It might be best for you but, may not be good for your friend or vice versa.
  • Every individual has different type of skin some may have oily or combination or dry, so use according to your skin type.
  • Always do a patch test. Your sunscreen might be having less chemicals but nobody know if actually it is going give you rash or not. So always test them before using it.
  • For oily skin always look for the ingredients listed in the pack , it must have water (Aqua) as a base formula.
  • Always apply SPF on moisturized skin to keep away any dryness and white cast.
  • Apply the sunscreen in every 2-3 hours if you are planning to stay out doors. Also use cloth and gloves to cover up the sun exposed skin.
  • Do a self analysis of all the products you buy by reading more related information about them.
