Hi girls,

After making a list of night creams for oily skinned beauties, I decided to make a list of day creams too. Day creams are equally important in your skin care regimen. The skin deals with harsh sunlight and pollution during the day. If you provide your skin with its food in the form of moisture, it can fight back the harmful effects. I have added day creams in my routine, and even though I use my same old sunscreen, I see lesser tan than earlier. Day creams often contain SPF, but I suggest you use a sunscreen along with your day cream to get maximum protection. This list has something for all age groups and budgets. Check it out and pick your favourite.

Nature’s Essence Caressence Timeless Beauty Mattifying Day Cream SPF 15

This is the most cost effective option available in the Indian market. Although the cream is a little thick, it gets absorbed easily; and, it keeps skin oil free for 4 hours or more. If you want glowing skin without an oily cast, this one can be your pick.

Himalaya Herbals Oil-Free Radiance Gel Cream

Himalaya is another much-trusted skin care brand in India. This product from the brand is a thick gel-cream that gets absorbed by the skin like a dream and keeps it mattified all day long. If you love gel-based products this can be your ideal choice for summer.

Himalaya Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream

This cream is the ideal choice for oily skinned beauties who get dry patches due to harsh sun exposure. It treats dryness without making the skin oily. It contains natural sun protection and clears out dull complexion.

VLCC De-Pigmentation Day Cream SPF 25

This cream keeps your skin soft and moisturized for 10 hours or more without causing any breakout. So if you are suffering from acne and the acne medicines are making the skin dry, this can become your favourite. This also contains SPF 25 which provides a good amount of sun protection.

Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Vitamin C Day Cream

This is a dream product for oily skinned beauties. It contains aloe vera, mint and other natural extracts that cool down the skin and keep it soft and matte all day long. You can easily use it as a primer for light daytime makeup looks as it is not heavy at all. This one also contains SPF, which makes it an ideal choice for your morning ‘day cream-bb cream-compact’ routine.

Fabindia Vitamin E Daily Moisturising Cream

As your skin starts ageing, it starts losing the elasticity. This cream is enriched with beeswax and Vitamin E, which help the cells to maintain elasticity and defend the first signs of ageing. It adds the right dose of moisture without making the skin oily and is suitable for all skin types. If you are an animal lover, you will be happy to know that the product is not tested on animals, just like all other FabIndia products.

Za True White Day Cream SPF 20 PA++

If your skin is feeling dull and dehydrated due to long sun exposures, you can use this product without the fear of breakouts. The Vitamin C content of this mousse-like cream takes care of the problems and gives you an even, radiant finish. It actually brightens the skin up and also protects against harmful sun-rays.

Colorbar Hydra White Intense Whitening Hydrating Day Lotion

This lotion has a thinner consistency than a cream and gets absorbed easily. The consistency is lightweight and feels like nothing on the skin after getting absorbed. All you can feel is hydrated, moist, and happy skin. Try it and you won’t regret it at all.

Aviance White Intense Visible Radiance Day Gel

Some dry skinned beauties get super oily skin and acne in summers. If you are having the same problem, this gel is your perfect choice. The natural sunscreen gives protection against UVA and UVB and a soothing effect as well. It helps to combat the free radicals and protects skin against the harmful pollutants.

It immediately soothes and relieves sensitive skin. You can use it even around the under eye area. If your oily skin is badly in the need of hydration, pick this up and you won’t regret at all.

The Body Shop Drops of Light Pure Healthy Brightening Day Cream

This pick from The Body Shop that is super helpful from the blemished skin. The rich yet lightweight cream is a pleasure for the skin. Only a wee bit of the product goes a long way, and on massaging, the cream gets absorbed in no time at all. It gives an instant boost of glow and brightness to the skin but does not make the skin oily or cause any breakout.

Forest Essentials Eladi Teenage Day Cream

Young girls with oily, acne prone skin need very delicate and natural care for their skin. This cream provides that without making the skin oily or greasy. The luxurious product hydrates and brightens up the face along with controlling sebum secretion. It fades away the scars and gives a bright, even tone. With an SPF of 30, it is also a good substitute for your sunscreens.

I love using the Forest Essentials cream these days. It suits my skin type well and makes me feel like a young teenager. ? Which one is your favourite?
