SUMMING UP

Always use a broad spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin against both UVA and UVB rays of the sun.

Try to avoid direct sunlight between 10am-3pm since sunscreen offers only 97% sun protection.

If a sunscreen makes your skin dull and dark, it means the sunscreen ingredients are stressing your skin. Choose a mineral sunscreen instead.

Although sun ta fades naturally over time, you can use chemical exfoliators(AHA or BHA peels) and face packs(O3+ De-tan Pack) for faster results.

Reapply sunscreen every 2-3 hours. Using a sunscreen stick makes reapplication super convenient.
