Top 10 Best Sunscreen Lotions & Body Sprays Available in India For Oily Skin
Summer is all about comfortable cotton sun dresses, tank tops and shorts. With such scorching weather, it is practically impossible to wear trousers, jeans or full sleeve tops. We have been repeatedly told to use sunscreen and liberally apply one teaspoon all over the face and neck. However, we often forget that it isn’t only the face that needs sun protection but also the body. The skin of the body can develop discolorations and burns due to excessive tanning which is very cumbersome to treat. Therefore, one must apply a broad spectrum sunscreen on the face and other exposed areas 30 minutes prior to leaving the house. We have already listed the top 10 sunscreens for the face and today we pick the best waterproof sunscreen lotions for body available in India.
