If not used sunscreen, your forehead skin will be pigmented and will cause pimples and acne. Also, much more like Tan, skin burn and at most even skin cancer.
My personal favorite sunscreen that you can get in India, which is cheap, 50+ SPF, and also is oil-free and gives a matte finish. The best part blends perfectly with Mamaearth’s oil-free moisturizer.
Use after cleansing and applying moisturizer. Wait 15 minutes before going out in direct sun. If you are outdoor for many hours, apply it for every 3-4 hours.
The best part it’s water proof, you don’t have to worry about sweat and swimming.
Daily use on face of 30ml will easily go a whole month, it’s very long lasting.
