Is the price of that *dermatologist recommended sunscreen* stopping you from protecting yourself from the sun? Don’t worry we have all been there. While the dermatologist recommended products are great and there’s no doubt about that, not all of us can afford to or WANT to spend Rs. 1,500 on a tiny tube of sunscreen. We have heard all sorts of rumours about sunscreen, while some of them may hold true these are the sunscreen myths you should ignore. Never ever walk out of your home without applying sunscreen cream for face as this will cost you in a long run. While purchasing a sunscreen, know what you want from it. NOT all sunscreens are formulated the same way. Here’s a list of 4 affordable sunscreens that are perfect for *every* budget bracket.
A sunscreen that’s got you covered from head to toe? Aye, aye. The POPxo Beach Bum Multi-Use Sunscreen Spray can be used on your face, body and even your hair.

You can even spritz it on over makeup without ruining your base. It offers intense hydration and replenishes your skin, and locks it with the right kind of nourishment.
If you’re on the lookout for something cooling as well as lightweight, narrowing it down to a gel-like formula is a no-brainer. The POPxo H2O Booster Sunscreen Gel is a water-based sunscreen that delivers instant pumps of hydration to your skin—owing to its composition of the ever-moisturising Hyaluronic Acid—and it blends into your skin seamlessly without leaving behind any greasiness on the surface. It has a strength of SPF 30 as well as a rating of PA+++.
Apart from sun-protecting your skin during the day, you must put together some sort of a post-care regimen to heal and treat your body—and this is your answer. This after-sun skin-loving lotion contains ceramides and Vitamin E to deeply nourish, calm, and moisturise your skin and repair its barrier so as to prevent and heal any sun-induced damage. The formula is non-greasy and cooling, and is packed with antioxidants and vitamins that your skin will love.
There’s no way a spray can make your skin feel greasy—this vehicle of sun-proofing is convenient, and isn’t just limited to the skin. It can protect the hair from sun-induced damage as well.

Oils have earned quite the reputation of making our skin feel greasy. The POPxo Sun Glaze Ultra-Light Body Oil is an exception This spray-on sunscreen oil is like a nourishes your skin, and offers broad-spectrum protection to your skin (SPF 30!). It literally seeps into your skin seamlessly without leaving a trace behind except for resplendent, sun-kissed skin.
Formulated for all types of skin, the POPxo Selfie Ready Tinted Sunscreen is a triple-duty product in the way that it starts off as a primer, doubles up as a glow-inducing tinted moisturiser, and sun-proofs your skin. It has a strength of SPF-50 to protect you from UVB rays, and it comes with a PA+++ rating—which means that it provides high levels of protection from UVA rays. While UVB rays are associated with sunburn and cancer, UVA rays penetrate your skin more deeply, are linked to ageing (photo-ageing), and can cause your skin to turn brown-ish. And it offers you protection from man-made sources of blue light as well—in other words, protection from light emitted from your screens. Because, yes, they can have long-term effects like premature ageing on the skin.
