Come summer and the world sizzles with relentless heat. Whether it's the lazy beaches of Goa or the palm-fringed coast of Thailand, there is little escape from the scorching sun, especially on a summer vacay. And before you pack your swimsuit and hit the beach (or the hills, as long as it's away from work), make sure to prioritise sun protection. Sun exposure, while providing essential Vitamin D, can also be damaging if not managed properly. And picking the right sunscreen mostly depends on your skin type and the destination to some extent. Here's a breakdown of some of the best sunscreens to keep your skin safe and happy this summer

How To Pick The Right Sunscreen:

Skin Type: Choose a sunscreen formulated for your specific skin type. Oily skin benefits from oil-free, mattifying formulas, while dry skin needs a more hydrating lotion. Sensitive skin requires fragrance-free and paraben-free options.
Product Types: Sunscreens come in lotions, sprays, gels, and more to suit your skin type (lotions for oily skin) and needs (sprays for travel). They can be chemical (absorbing UV rays), mineral (reflecting UV rays), or a hybrid of both. You can pick hybrids if you are travelling to a sunny place.
Activity Level: For intense outdoor activities or water sports, opt for a water-resistant sunscreen with SPF 50+. For everyday wear, a sunscreen with SPF 30-50 is sufficient.
Labelling: Look for sunscreens labelled with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) and PA (Protection Grade) ratings. SPF indicates protection against UVB rays (which cause sunburn), while PA indicates protection against UVA rays (which cause premature ageing).
