provides protection from both ultraviolet A and B rays of the sun According to specialists UVB rays affect the outer layer of skin and mainly cause sun burns Their intensity is the highest between 10am and 2pm which is when the sun is usually the brightest Similarly UVA rays are said to cause premature ageing This is why it is important to choose a sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB Also

come in In fact you need to apply a moisturiser separately only of your skin is extremely dry It is essential to apply sunscreen whenever you’re going out into the sun not only on the face but also on all exposed areas especially the back of your neck and your arms Here are some tips on how to select and use sunscreens this Summer: * Use a waterproof sunscreen with at least a 30 SPF (sun protection factor) to protect yourself from the sun’s harsh UVA and UVB rays For oily skin use a gel-based sunscreen while those with combination and dry skin should use a sunscreen moisturiser with matte-finish especially if you intend to put make-up on it else a cream-based one that gets absorbed well without leaving a residual layer would also work For those with sensitive skin make sure you consult your dermatologist for the right kind of sunscreen Also read:Essential summer skincare tips for oily skin * Always make sure to change the brand of sunscreen you use every six months so as to ensure the best protection for your skin and also so that your skin doesn’t become immune to any particular kind/brand or the same set of contents * Make sure that the sunscreen is the first thing you apply on to your skin which will act as a block for the UV rays Apply your day cream over that then a foundation or BB cream There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding the selection and use of sunscreens Here we attempt to clear the air and bust some popular myths: * While selecting a sunscreen it’s important to remember that higher the SPF the more effective it is likely to be But the SPF matters only when the wearer is exposed to the sun continuously for long hours For most Indian skins any sunscreen with SPF 26 and above is sufficient Also be it SPF 26 or SPF 50 both need to be reapplied after three hours if you’re going to be under the sun for a long time It’s always a good idea to keep your sunscreen bottle with you at all times Also read:Try these healthy citrus salads this summer * Some people think that sunscreens leave a white mark on the face which is why they avoid using it But that is not the case especially with routine sunscreens Only those with a physical blocker — the kind usually used by sportsmen — leave a white mark * The more expensive a sunscreen is does not mean that it will be better What actually matters is that you should apply the suncreen 10-15 minutes before going in the sun and then reapply it every three hours if you continue being exposed to the sun Also while purchasing a bottle make sure than the contents should clock both UVA and UVB rays * Though initially sunscreens did contain PABA or para-aminobenzoic acid a nutrient that could result in some allergic reactions sunscreens manufactured after 2003 rarely contain any PABA So rest assured and lather up * Sunscreens do not lead to vitamin D deficiency This has been scientifically proven so don’t worry and start protecting your skin * Another misconception regarding sunscreen use is that people with skin allergies or sensitive skin should not use it Wrong again In fact sunscreen is mandatory for such people else skin conditions like rosacea may develop But for sensitive skin people choose a sunblock with titanium dioxide or zinc oxide instead of chemicals like PABA dioxybenzone oxybenzone or sulisobenzone Definitely avoid sunscreens with alcohol fragrances or preservatives Also read:6 tips to keep your skin healthy in summers For those concerned about whether sunscreens actually impair the production of vitamin D in the body there is good news too US

problems in both adults and children There is another studythat raised an alarm among people which said that sunscreens can have an adverse effect of sunscreens on the functioning of sperm cells But more research needs to be done on the subject to say something conclusively In the meantime as long as you apply sunscreen while going out into the sun and then wash yourself — which is also good

16 people committed suicide One supporter jumped in front of a bus A few hung themselves and some consumed poison They never knew her personally This appears to be a trend peculiar to south India — somehow it seems unlikely any Delhiites would kill themselves if Sheila Dikshit went to jail When MGR a previous Tamil Nadu Chief Minister died after serving three consecutive terms 30 people committed suicide several thousands had their heads tonsured and over a million followed his remains around till the funeral At least there was death to explain the manic grief of supporters in MGR’s case But Jayalalithaa has merely gone to prison And since politicians in India routinely make staggering comebacks it’s a little early to write her off Whatever one’s political opinions Jayalalithaa’s cult status is weirdly fascinating never more evident than at the swearing in of the next Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Mr Panneerselvam 63 overcome by emotion shed copious tears for his supreme leader while taking the oath Social welfare minister B Valarmathi broke down soon after One by one the entire cabinet of 30-something ministers were weeping Even more baffling they didn’t seem to be in the least bit embarrassed at this bizarre display of sentiment (His swearing-in ceremony has over two lakh hits on different clips on YouTube) Can it possibly be that Mr Panneerselvam is absolutely devastated at becoming Chief Minister I can only make sense of it by drawing a parallel with my own life In the unlikely event the editor of this paper was suddenly hauled away and miraculously I should find myself in charge — I would be weeping too — with joy My delirious happiness in such a situation (alas one can always dream) would make it quite impossible for me to pretend otherwise Even if I somehow managed to put up a convincing show of being distraught at my boss’s bad luck I would be called out as a pathetic hypocrite by my merciless colleagues Mr Panneerselvam however didn’t need to worry that his Cabinet might regard his unabashed sorrow with skepticism since they were all so busy weeping themselves The visuals of the teary Tamil Nadu cabinet were strangely reminiscent of North Korean leader Kim Jong-il’s painstakingly choreographed funeral: where mourners lined the streets wailing and doubling over in apparent pain People who did not cry were sentenced to six months of hard labour We Indians are not known for such ostentatious exhibits of distress Anger maybe The pictures coming out of Tamil Nadu of people beating and thumping their chests in grief could be seen as hilarious if they didn’t also involve so much senseless tragedy Suicide contagion is real especially where celebrities are involved Extensive or sympathetic news coverage fuels it Political parties are skilled at manipulating the feelings of the vulnerable as the recent Muzaffarnagar riots have shown Maybe once the new Chief Minister has finished sobbing and drying his tears he can issue a stern message to citizens to get on with their lives Or even appreciate the all too rare but very pleasant reminder that the laws of the land are the same for everyone even the formidable Jayalalithaa For
