We Indians share a humble history with pickles. They not just add to the taste but also memory. Our mothers and grandmothers put in hours of hard work to make just a jar of it. But all of it can go waste if the pickle is not stored and protected in the right jar.
The same goes for the skin. All the efforts made to achieve healthy and glowing skin can go for a toss if we do not preserve our skin with the last protective step: Sun protection! We know that most of us out there hate to apply sunblock. But whether you’re going to the beach, heading out for groceries or just working from home, you ALWAYS need to wear sunscreen.
You might think the sun only causes tanning or burning. You are wrong! It causes photoaging, uneven skin tone, pigmentation and melasma. There are two types of rays that can damage your skin; UVA that are associated with skin ageing and UVB rays associated with the burning of the skin. Many people with sensitive and oily skin shy away from using sunscreens due to the thick and heavy texture that might break them out or make the skin oily or greasy. Dry skin people avoid it as they think it will look patchy. Men often ignore wearing sunscreen because they see it as a hassle. And the list of excuses goes on and on. However, sunscreen NEEDS to be a part of everyone’s AM routine, be it, man or woman. If you don’t want to put your skin at risk, remember to NEVER skip your sunscreen.
The good news is that there is sunscreen for every skin :). Fixderma offers the best sunscreens in India with SPF 30,40,50 & 80. The range packs in sunscreens for men, women and kids with different formulas like gel, lotion and cream to suit different skin types. Products with different SPF from the range can be used at different times. SPF 30 sunscreen is suitable to be used indoors or in winters when the sun rays are not very harsh. SPF 50 and more should be used while heading outdoors in summers. All the products from Fixderma are safe on the skin and dermatologically tested.
OILY SKIN & SENSITIVE SKIN
If you have oily and acne-prone skin, the last thing you would want for your skin is to break out further. To prevent this, go for a lightweight gel-based sunscreen.
We recommend Fixderma Shadow Gel, the best sunscreen for oily skin types. The formulation is non-greasy, non-comedogenic and penetrates deep into the skin eliminating the risk of skin damage, wrinkling, premature ageing and darkening.
For someone with a dry skin type, no amount of moisturization is too much. Thus, a cream-based formula will make for a perfect sunscreen for dry skin types to add extra moisturization along with protecting the skin from sun damage, making the skin soft and supple.
We recommend Fixderma Shadow Cream for someone with dry skin, a lightweight cream-based sunscreen that provides excellent coverage from UV rays for a longer duration of time. It gives a healthy and moisturized look without making the skin shiny or greasy.
NORMAL SKIN/COMBINATION SKIN
Those blessed with a normal skin type should opt for a sunblock that would not mess with the natural balance of their skin.
We recommend Fixderma Shadow Lotion for people with normal and combination skin. The formula is lightweight and non-comedogenic and allows the skin to breathe freely without drying the face or making it extremely oily.
ARE YOU WONDERING HOW TO REAPPLY YOUR SUNSCREEN?
It is recommended to reapply sunscreen every 2 hours, especially if you’re sweating or swimming. But how do you do it, especially with makeup on? The answer is SPRAY SUNSCREENS! Spray sunscreens are lightweight, easy to apply and can be used on the go.
We recommend Fixderma Shadow Spray that is non-greasy, lightweight and gets easily absorbed into the skin, easy for times when you have to reapply your sunscreen.
Note: Do not spray directly on the face, take an adequate amount on your palms and rub it on your palms.
Hopefully, we have convinced you to wear sunscreen all year-round and our list of best sunscreens for the face will help you pick the right one for yourself.
Don’t forget, whenever in doubt - wear sunscreen!
