Which type of sunscreen we should use?

Ideally, any sunscreen with sun protection factor (SPF) between 15 to 25+ will help protect you from daily sun exposure. However, if you are staying outdoors for a longer period of time, then opt for a higher SPF. Also, choose a sunscreen which is non-sticky or non-greasy, as this will not make your skin too sweaty.

How do you know which sunscreen is best?
