Why Should You Opt For A Gel Sunscreen

Does your sunscreen feel heavy or leave a greasy residue behind after every application? Are you tired of frequent breakouts or burning sensation after applying your sunscreen? If your answer is yes to all the above-mentioned questions, there is a high chance that you are using the wrong type of sunscreen.

Read on to learn some lesser-known facts about using gel sunscreen and it is the best sun protection option over other available options.

What is Gel Sunscreen?

As the name suggests, a gel sunscreen is created using gel formulation, offering a lightweight and non-greasy texture. Due to its light gel-based consistency, this type of sunscreen tends to get easily absorbed into the skin, providing complete sun protection without making your skin feel heavy or need extensive rubbing.

Since the gel-based sunscreen is free from oil and is non-comedogenic, it becomes a perfect lightweight sunscreen option for all skin types Pond's Sun Miracle gel-based sunscreens offer broad-spectrum protection with SPF 50+ and PA+++ ratings so that you don't have to worry about sunburn and skin damage issues on a fun day out in the sun!

Benefits of Gel Sunscreen

Opting for gel sunscreen can be a complete game changer in your skincare regime. Here are some amazing benefits of using gel sunscreen for your everyday sun protection:

1. Lightweight texture: When it comes to lightweight texture, gel-based sunscreen simply stands out from the rest. This is because gel-based sunscreens have a lighter texture compared to cream and lotions. Additionally, the gel-based texture also leaves a cooling effect on your skin, making them an ideal option in hot and humid weather.

2. Broad-spectrum protection: One of the primary benefits of opting for Pond's Sun Miracle SPF 50 PA+++ Creme Gel Sunscreen with Niacinamide is that it comes with broad-spectrum protection. It shields your skin against the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays and blue light emissions.

3. Quick absorption:Every absorbs rapidly in your skin, providing optimum protection without making your skin feel heavy or clogging your pores. Most cream or lotion-based sunscreens have a thick consistency and usually settle on the surface of your skin, leaving a greasy and heavy sensation behind.

4. Easy to apply: Compared to other available forms of sunscreen, gel-based sunscreen is quite easy to apply. Gel-based sunscreen glides smoothly on your skin, providing effective protection against the sun and unforgiving UV rays.

5. Non-greasy finish: Lastly, gel sunscreen is an excellent option for anyone who is looking for non-greasy sunscreen that leaves no white cast. Whether you plan to go out swimming or wish to apply some layers of makeup, Pond's Sun Miracle SPF 35 PA+++ Creme Gel Sunscreen with Niacinamide stays intact, protecting and brightening your skin all day long.

Comparison with Other Types of Sunscreens

1. Gel Sunscreen Vs Cream Sunscreen: Both gel and cream sunscreens are completely opposite to each other. Cream sunscreens are more suitable for people with dry skin types as it is often more hydrating and of thick consistency. Whereas, gel-based sunscreen is best suitable for people with oily and combination types due to its lightweight and non-greasy texture.

2. Gel Sunscreen Vs Lotion Sunscreen: One of the key differences between gel and lotion sunscreen is that lotion sunscreens are often made for use on the body, while gel sunscreens are typically best for facial skin. Regardless of the skin type, lotion sunscreen can be used by anyone who wants to add a protective layer against the sun and harmful UV rays.

3. Gel Sunscreen Vs Spray Sunscreen: Generally, spray sunscreens are more on liquid texture and often lighter than gel-based sunscreen. Spray sunscreen is more convenient to use when you are traveling outdoors and looking for a fast-drying formula.

4. Gel Sunscreen Vs Serum Sunscreen: If you are looking for a lighter sunscreen option than gel-based sunscreen, serum sunscreen is your go-to option. Serum sunscreen has an ultra-light and fluid consistency that gets absorbed quite easily. However, if you are looking for a reliable and optimum sun protection option, gel sunscreen can stand out from the rest.

Application and Usage Tips:

A sunscreen is only effective when it is applied in the right way. Here is the correct way you can apply sunscreen and reap maximum benefits:

Step 1: Always start with a clean and fresh skin base. Consider using a good facewash like Pond's DeTan Facewash that helps fade pigmentation and brighten your skin after every wash.

Step 2: Don't forget to moisturise your skin. UV rays and the sun can be unforgiving to the skin by stripping its natural oil, making it appear dull and dry. Apply a sufficient amount of Pond's Super Light Gel with Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin E all over your face and neck.

Step 3: Take two strips of Pond's Sun Miracle SPF 50 PA+++ Creme Gel Sunscreen with Hyaluronic Acid on your index and middle finger and apply it evenly across your face and neck. For effective results, always apply sunscreen 15-20 minutes before walking out in the sun.


If you are still wondering How does a gel sunscreen work? well, the answer is quite simple - it works a similar way to a traditional sunscreen. However, the difference is that gel sunscreen has a lighter, non-greasy texture that gets quickly absorbed without leaving any white cast. This also means that the unique gel sunscreen formula is suitable for skin types, offering optimum protection from the sun and UV rays.

Elevate your skincare routine with Pond's Sun Miracle sunscreen range and give complete protection to your skin all around the seasons.
