Do people with dark skin need to wear SPF?
Spoiler alert: No matter your skin tone, you need sun protection every damn day.
You must wear sunscreen all year round both indoors and outdoors and not just during the summer months. As UV rays are active on all days, cloudy or not, the sun can cause damage to your skin in all seasons.
So, sis, please put on the sunscreen! Plus, there are a plethora of sunscreens that don’t smell like sunscreens or leave a white cast.
According to a recent cosmopolitan poll, 1 in 3 Black women never, ever wear SPF. So, don’t feel disheartened if you don’t, but do not take this as an opportunity to relax. Wearing sunscreen is still the best way to prevent skin cancer and still extremely important in reducing hyperpigmentation and ageing.
Applying sunscreen should be the last step in your daily morning routine after you moisturise.
