It’s a known fact that sunscreen saves your skin from the adverse effects of UV rays. Applying it while stepping out of your house is a must, but you need to do it while staying indoors as well, say experts.

Technology and harmful radiations from devices have barged into our living and sleeping spaces in a big way.

“The increasing digital dependency has exposed our skin to the most harmful blue rays. Though consumers are well versed with the precautionary measures to protect themselves from the UVA rays, they are unaware about the damaging effects blue light has on their skin, and the possible protection available,” dermatologist Rashmi Sharma said in a statement.

Clearly, you need to take both an indoor and outdoor approach that provides protection to the skin.

There are ample brands offering sunscreens in different forms, but you need to know your skin type before you spend a hefty amount on the product. So, make sure you buy the right kind of sunscreen, say experts.

Aashmeen Munjaal, celebrity make-up artist and Bharti Taneja, Director of Alps Beauty Clinic and Academy have shared some tips:

* Sun protection creams for face have to be of really fine quality. Rather than going for too many sun block creams, you need to choose light weighted mist spray and have a thin layer. For your body you can use thick layered sunscreen.

Lotions and sun-guards containing SPF (Sun Protection Factor) 20 to 35 are suitable for Indian skin types.

The rays of the sun affect the fair complexion easily. Lotions having SPF 30 is the best for people having a fair or wheatish complexion. In case you have a dark complexion, you should opt for lotions that contain SPF 20.

If you reside near the coastal regions or are going on a vacation to the beach, you should choose a sunscreen lotions containing SPF 30 to 50.

* There are sunscreen lotions that are waterproof or water-resistant, which means that after the application of the lotion, even if you wash your face with water, the lotion will not wear off.

Waterproof sunscreen lotions will last up to 80 minutes in water and water-resistant sunscreen lotions can last up to 40 minutes in water. These kind of sunscreen lotions are best for swimmers.

* You need to identify if your skin is allergic to certain sunscreen. Different sunscreens have different ingredients so don’t be afraid of trying new sun screen.

For sensitive skin, avoid aphelia ingredients in skin. Also test the product on your skin at the back of your ear lobe. If there is no reaction you can continue with same sun screen. (Bollywood Country)
