Summer is something which brings joy to the life but extremes of anything is way better than nothing. I am not much skeptical about day creams because I hate them all. I have oily skin without any signs of acne yeah I am lucky in that case. Day creams which are easily available in India are not exactly meant for summers the reason behind it, is the ultra violet rays protection solution, in which most of them lag behind. I was looking for something new which is light weighted and I was not concerned about the coverage. I wanted something which can nourish my oily skin and make me look refreshing at the same; yes of course it must have spf enough to shield my skin from harmful rays because it is not possible every time to use two to three creams one on the other.
So here is to do kind of list, you can go through all the options available in the market according to your need. I have used most them and I have kept them on my list because they have one or the other quality.
Lacto Calamine Skin Balance Daily Nourishing Lotion – Oil Control
MRP- 45 INR
If you have oily skin just like me, this can be the best option for you. It gives a matte effect. I won’t say that it is the best day cream but yes if you are looking for something affordable you can go for it. Do remember it does not have spf.
- Clean And Clear Skin Balancing Oil Free Moisturizer
MRP- 99 INR
This is something which will soothe your skin in this burning heat. It has water based formula which keeps the oil away for many hours. If you have acne problem you can go for it. I always love light weighted day creams and it is one of them.
- Lakme Perfect Radiance Day Cream
MRP- 265 INR
Again a super quality product from Lakme , it has got mixed reviews but what I felt is that it is perfect for summer, you may experience some chalky look , but for my skin type it blends amazingly.
- Neutrogena Oil – Free Moisture
MRP- 349 INR
This one is clinically proven and it controls oil secretion for long hours so all you ladies worried about their oily skin must try this at least once. It do contains spf 15 I wish it could have better UV protection, but I am happy with this product. It is costly but worth it.
- Lakme 9 to 5 Insta Light Instant Glow Crème
It is quite affordable and good for summer. This one is not so great but it does contain some spf so you can definitely try this. I am right now using this one only and I am satisfied. What more you expect at this price.
So guys do tell me what you all are using this summer, other than your usual sunscreen.
