Sunscreen Lotions should be your best friend if you really love your skin and want it to be healthy over a long period of time. The sun is out all year long be it summers or winters so sunscreen should be used anytime before you are out in the sun. Sun damage can cause harmful skin problems over a period of time like early appearance of wrinkles and saggy skin, darkness from prolonged exposure and dark spots which look really ugly. So its very important to protect your skin from the sun. In this post I’ve got together few of the best and popular sunscreens which are most preferred and considered affordable among the crowd. So lets get started with the list of Top 5 Affordable Sunscreens of India under Rs 300.
1. Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel SPF 50
This is by far my favourite sunscreen in the market, retails for about INR 236 for a 50g pack. It has a gel based formula which makes it stand out from other sunscreens and does not leave a white cast which is the best part. This is suitable for normal to oily skin (also suits combination skin) and the finish is smooth and non-greasy, it lasts for about 4 to 5 hours. If you have dry skin, I’ll definitely share more options so read on (Buy it here).
2. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+
Now this one is a saviour for all those with acne prone, sensitive skin who find it hard to figure out a sunscreen for them in the market. A lot of people have even claimed that their acne problem has reduced after a prolonged use of this sunscreen. Its again suitable for oily to normal skin people and leaves a matte finish but it has a creamy formula which may result in white cast, blend it properly and you’ll be fine (Buy it here).
3. Biotique Bio Morning Nectar Ultra soothing face lotion 30+ SPF Sunscreen
A herbal sunscreen sounds pretty impressive. Right? This sunscreen is very soothing on skin and gives a nice coverage. Its again good for oily to normal skin and is not moisturizing enough so it may disappoint dry skin people. It has wheatgerm oil which contains natural SPF which makes it stand out from other chemical laden products. A 120 ml pack retails for about INR 159 which is very affordable (Buy it here).
4. Lakme Sun Expert SPF 30 PA Fairness UV Lotion
Finally comes a sunscreen that is best suitable for dry skin. It has a creamy texture which can leave a white cast if you don’t blend it well. Its leaves a whitening glow on your face which is the best part about it. It keeps skin healthy and nourished all day long. It retails for about INR 180 for a pack of 50 ml (Buy it here).
5. Lotus Herbals Safe Sun Anti Tan Body Lotion SPF-25
Apart from our face we also need to protect our other body parts which are sun exposed. We often tend to ignore it and later complain about getting tanned. My favourite sunscreen as a body lotion is the one from Lotus Herbals which has a SPF of 25 and protects our entire body from the harmful sun rays. It absorbs in the skin without leaving a cast and should be applied 15 to 20 minutes before you go out (this is applicable in case of any sunscreen you are using (Buy it here).
