Contrary to popular belief, SPF products are a vital summer essential for melanin folks too.
Although darker skin tones are less susceptible to sunburn, they are still at risk of damaging skin effects without the proper protection. These effects include dryness, skin irritation, fine lines, and wrinkles. Such exposure may also result in more serious effects like skin cancer. Incorporating beauty products and sunscreen into your regular routine drastically lowers the risk of skin damage from excessive sun exposure. Here's a rundown of my SPF product bible for summer:
This black-owned beauty brand hails a trio of sunscreen, lip tint, and hand cream that's the perfect combo for keeping you protected from harmful UV rays. Be sure to try out their highly coveted UNSUN Mineral Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30 for darker skin this summer (Amazon, $30).
