Sun is at its peak nowadays and sun block is a must-have to avoid tanning. Also, too much sun exposure can cause skin cancer so beware!  I just can’t step out of home without wearing my sun block, I’ve tried different sun blocks but unfortunately, none of them worked for me. I am a skin care freak so I got worried when my dermatologist told me about how much sun has damaged my skin. Hence, it was compulsory for me to change my sun block; my dermatologist recommended a new sun block which is Coris dermatology spectrum max cream SPF 100. You get 40 ml for 850 PKR, but trust me, it’s worth buying. 

Let’s talk about the sun block I’ve been using before, I had Neutrogena’s sensitive skin sun block lotion SPF 30 and I am totally unsatisfied with this product, I’ve used it for a couple of months and to be very honest, it’s useless. It is not water resistant and you’ll have to re-apply it again and again if you’re a sweaty person like me. However, it doesn’t clog pores and its hypo allergic which is a plus point. I’d suggest going for matte finish sunscreens to avoid that greasy and sweaty face. The one I am using right now is semi-matte but what I do is that I apply my sun block and then I pat some transparent powder on my face so it becomes matte that way and my sun block stays for 6 to 7 hours. Apart from using a sun block, try to cover yourself while you’re out. I have this life-saving umbrella and I use it to cover my hands and face even when I am wearing a sun block. 

Here is some advice for you people:

  - Look for products that are labeled broad spectrum (UVA/UVB/UVC) with an SPF of 60 – 100.
  - Look for fragrance-free products.
  - Try to stay in shade when the sun is harshest.
  - Cover your body, face and hands with an umbrella or other skin protecting clothes. 

Last but not the least; buy a pack of cleansing wipes if you’re a student like me.  Dirty/greasy face can make you break out so clean your face and then re-apply the sun block if you’re planning to stay out for your projects/assignments.
