A country like India gets the tropical sun all year round. The sun has its benefits but could also prove to be harmful for the skin. Apart from sunscreen, there are other ways of protecting your skin from the sun. Here are some other methods and practices you can adopt to protect your skin from the sun and fight the tan.
Scrub that tan away

Scrub that tan away

It goes without saying that you need to swear by exfoliation to get the daily tan off. Scrubs that are made specifically for tan removal are your saviours in summer. Our vote goes to Ponds White Beauty Tan Removal Scrub that can guarantee tan-free, brighter skin. It is formulated with tan solve beads along with skin brightening moisturiser which removes dark spots and brightens the skin. 

Avoid stepping out in the scorching sun

The sun’s rays are the strongest between 10am and 4pm. Avoid stepping out at this time as they can have an adverse impact on your skin. If you must step out, wear a light fabric that’ll keep you cool, wear sunglasses and a wide brimmed hat to protect your face, especially the T-zone i.e. the most sensitive part of your face.

Be liberal with sunscreen

One rule to follow till eternity—never leave the house without sunscreen. Look around our bag and you’ll find the Lakmé 9to5 Hydrating Super Sunscreen with an SPF of 50 PA+++. It comes in two variants, hydrating and mattifying, to suit dry and oily skin types respectively. Another advantage of this range is that it also doubles up as a primer, readying the skin for all that makeup just in case you need to head out for an emergency lunch/meeting.
