What SPF is right for you?

In my last post on sunscreens, I received quite a few queries on what is the best SPF. There were some who were of the opinion that no higher than 20 is needed, whereas some thought differently.

So I turned to the experts at Lakme and asked them to shed a bit of light on their research on Indian skintones & SPF. This is what they had to say: 

As you can see most of India falls into the very high category when it comes to solar UV exposure. Any wonder that 8 out of 10 women struggle with hyperpigmentation issues?

I hope you girls find this useful to when choosing your sunscreen.
