10 Best Spray Sunscreens Available in India


Top 10 Sunscreen Sprays in India with Reviews and Prices

I’ll be the first to say it, spray on sunscreen has to be the best thing since sliced bread. It’s no mess, no fuss and you can kiss that weird white sheen goodbye! It’s also a great way to make sure you’ve coated every inch of you with sunblock. After all, you can never be too safe. I was fascinated to discover that there were many options in sunscreen sprays and thought that I would compile a list for you all on the must have spray Sunscreens Available in the market. Are sprays as effective as their lotion and stick counterparts? Yes they are, but it’s best to use a sun protection product that is ideal for your skin type. So creams and sunscreen lotions are great for dry skin, but sticks and sprays are better for the oily combination skin.

Sprays are also very easily to apply. It is also great for areas like the nape of the neck instead of putting creams there, as that is messy. A word of caution with the spray sunblocks: because of how it’s made and formulated, sometimes you don’t get all the product out, which may lead to wastage.

List of Top Ten Sunscreen Sprays:

  1. Coppertone Sport High Performance Sunscreen Clear Continuous Spray

sunspray-5-minThis is a great sunblock that is a clear gel formula that you can spray onto your skin without rubbing in. It has an SPF of 30. It is also athlete-friendly so if you run or are spending long hours out, this works great. Make sure to reapply every two hours otherwise there’s no point. This is sweat and water resistant and CFC free. It also dries quickly and does not sting the eyes. It costs 900 for 6 oz of product. They do work exactly like regular sunscreens though, and are useful for those pesky kids of yours who never want to wait when you’re trying to drown them in sunscreen!

It is important to note that if your SPF is lower than 30, it may not be the best for extended outdoor use. Try to use a higher SPF if you’re staying out longer, but also make sure to apply every 2 hours. Applying once is not enough in a day and can cause serious sun damage. There are a lot of budget sunscreen lotion options in the market today which offer a range that will be comfortable to your wallet and beneficial to your skin. Make sure to read the ingredients list always, in case you or your child is allergic. Not all sun protection products are formulated with children in mind so you may need to buy a specific one for kids. We at VNA already have an article up about sunscreen for children, please do check that out.
