You can drink a lot of water to maintain the pH of your skin, stay calm and use the best sunscreens for your skin type. Best sunscreen will provide a protective layer to your skin. Check which one is for your skin type.

It offers an SPF of 50. Since it provides a broad spectrum, it provides protection from UV-A and UV-B rays. It also helps in controlling the skin ageing since extra melanin is not produced. I love the fragrance of this sunscreen. You can easily apply it on a sunny day and not worry about your skin getting oily. The only con in this sunscreen is that it does not give a full matte finish. So if that doesn’t bother you, go for it. It is the best way to start your day.
These sunscreens will not only save your day but also make your skin healthier. But make sure you choose the correct sunscreens for your skin. A sunscreen that is good for oily skin may not be good for dry skin or sensitive skin. Read your skin before buying the product.
