Every summer season, it is the usual drill; you pick a sunscreen and include it in your skincare regime. You apply it every day, reapply multiple times a day, whether indoors or outdoors, whether it’s raining or shining. However, because the sun’s rays are more harmful and damaging on your skin than ever in the sunny summer months, it makes more sense to step up your sunscreen game to tackle the blazing hot sun.
There are multiple sunscreens available on the drugstore shelves now. Each of them addresses a specific skin concern and offers distinct SPF. It may get overwhelming choosing the right sunscreen for yourself. However, fret not! We’ve simplified the task for you. Here are our recommendations on the must-have summer sunscreen essentials for all skin types:
