Which is the Best SPF for Oily Skin

There is no denying that sunscreen is the key element in everyone’s skin care routines. Whether you have a dry, oily or combination skin type, SUNSCREENS ARE NECESSARY! Just as important as cleansers, toners and moisturizers, sunscreens are of equivalent significance. But with sunscreens, comes a lot of teetering. Which sunscreen would be the best to suit my skin type, is this the best SPF for oily skin... so on and so forth. But you do not need to worry! We are here to tell you all you need to know before buying a sunscreen for oily skin!

The first thing you need to know is that no matter what skin type you have, you should always look for a sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher. One can use a sunscreen with SPF 15 too, if he/she does not step out in the sun much. But if you are going out under the sun, then skin experts mostly recommend using one with SPF 30 or higher than 30. 

The Sun Protective Factor, or commonly known as SPF, has hardly anything to do with skin types. So there is no specified SPF designated for different types of skin, the SPF Number only denotes how well the sunscreen protects skin against sunburn. Below are a few Sunscreens we, at Vanity Wagon have hand-picked for y’all.

The Best SPF for oily skin are listed hereunder-

1. Qurez Mattifying Sunscreen, Hybrid with Aloe & Matcha Green Tea, SPF 50 PA+++

  2. Do a patch test at the elbow before using sunscreen.
  3. Do consult a dermatologist/professional if any irritation occurs.

We cannot emphasize enough to incorporate sunscreens in your daily skincare routines because well, sunscreens are underrated! Live a sun-safe life! Cheers!
