The summer is officially here and ladies its time to make sure we are protecting our skin with the best sunscreens.
As a woman of color, my experience with skincare has been trial and error. What started as a ‘dysfunctional’ relationship turned into a better more compatible relationship.
I have extensive knowledge in all things skincare especially for women of color.
I’ve tried all the products you can think of and as someone who personally has brown + sensitive skin, its very crucial that we choose the right products.
So here are the top products that are safe and effective for those of us with melanin rich skin.
Super Goop ‘Unseen Sunscreen’.
This by far has to be the best sunscreen I’ve used. While most sunscreens leave an ‘ashy’ filter on brown or dark skin, this one is literally ‘unseen’. It’s weightless, scentless with 40 SPF protection.
Glo Skin Beauty Oil
This sunscreen instantly increases moisture content in the skin while sodium hyaluronate locks in water, making your skin feel smooth and supple.
First Aid Beauty Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer
I love the First Aid Beauty line.
The First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Pure Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 40 provides the benefits of a nourishing daily moisturizer with the UVA/UVB protection.
Neutrogena Hydroboost Sunscreen
I’ve been using Neutrogena products for over a decade and their hydroboost line is no exception.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion Sunscreen SPF 50 delivers powerful broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection with a water-light feel. With hyaluronic acid, the formula quenches skin with vital hydration all day long.
With that being said, I always recommend applying your sunscreen at least 20 minutes before going outside to allow the product to absorb into your skin and ready to tackle those harsh sun rays.
