Brief Answer:
Suitable products suggested.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

I can understand your concerns.

The best sunscreen you can have is Lakme sun expert with SPF 50.

This gives very good results.

A moisturizer has to be used separately.

Best Moisturizer I can suggest is La Roche-Posay Toleriane Fluid Soothing Protective Non-Oily Lotion.This works wonders.

Even peeling works pretty well for you.

Also, Lakme sun XXXXXXX removal will work for you on coming to home after sun exposure.

Try to avoid exposure to sunlight between 10 am-2pm.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Relevant alternative sunscreens suggested.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

In case you find difficulty with Lakme, I recommend the following alternatives.

1.Banana Boat's Ultra Defense XXXXXXX Skin Protect SPF 110 spray
2.Neutrogena Ultimate Sport SPF 70+ lotion.
3.BullFrog Water Armor Sport InstaCool SPF 50+ spray.

You need to avoid the sun for at least 2 hours after peel application.

Demelan, Golite, and Melalite had good results in many surveys.
