  1. Dear Ms Neisha,
    Your tips are very useful. However,I am looking for a sunscreen which suits sensitive skin. My wife and I are planning to go on a vacation where we intend spending some time on the beaches at US. She has a sensitive screen and usually whenever she had applied a sunscreen in the past, there are some allergic type of reaction on her face only. Therefore looking for a herbal kind of product for the body and some really safe non allergic kind of sunscreen for her face. She has dry skin.

  2. Hi Sandeep,

    I think you can try Avene sunscreen they are hypoallergic and has 2 different variations for both oily and dry skin types. When it comes to sunscreens that I like with herbal formulations there is Lotus Herbals Collagen shield sunblock SPF 70 ++ and Lotus 3 in 1 sunblock with SPF 40. Hopefully that will help you and your wife.

  3. Hi Niesha,

    Though I am not much exposed to sun,my face and neck are darker than my body. And I have uneven skin tone that is darker skin around my mouth and eyes.Please suggest me with some remedies.

    Many Thanks,

  4. Hi Priya,

    In that case you can daily use this remedy. take 1 teaspoonful of honey and 1 teaspoonful of lemon juice. Mix and apply on the face. Rinse after 30 minutes. This has to be done in the evening daily. This will give benefits in pigmentation and uneven skin tone.

  5. Hi
    i am having neither complete dry skin nor oily so will u suggest me the suitable sunscreen .

  6. Hi Rakshitha,

    In that case, I will suggest you to use a gel based sunscreen since lotion like sunscreen make the skin greasy after couple of hours and makes us sweat so matte or gel sunscreen will be better for you!

  7. Hiii im a clg girl.i go Early at 7 Am.nad.returns at spf suncreen is suitable.i dnt.know the type.of my skin

  8. Hi Sunanda,

    If your skin feels oily when you touch it with fingers after 4-5 hours of washing the face then it is oily or if your face feels dry and stretchy then it is dry but I have a feeling that yours would be normal skin else you would have known. therefore, you can use a matte sunscreen like lotus matte sunscreen that is good for most of the skin types.
