1. Go for the one that combats both UVA as well as UVB rays.
2. For Indian skin, a sunscreen with SPF 26 or 30 usually does the job.
3. Most sunscreens with SPF 30 are able to block around 97% of the UVB rays.
4. You must opt for the water resistant variants and the ones that come in gel form. Most sunscreens are cream based and make your skin look cakey, oily and suffocated. Do a patch test of some of the available brands before buying one.
Always apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before stepping out in the sun and repeat every 2 hours in case you are exposed to the sun.
