Have you ever heard the saying that states "protect your investment?" Well lets just say the investment here is your face. After spending hundreds of dollars investing into its wellness and health, forgetting to factor in sunscreen leaves that investment unprotected. As a woman of color, finding sunscreens without a harsh white tint can be challenging. In todays post, I am going to share my honest reviews on the sunscreens below. I have tried all and enjoyed all of the sunscreens listed, but I have found that different ones serve different purposes. I also once believed that because I had darker complexion, that I did not need sunscreen... This is far from the truth (All photos below are shop-able).
Some Benefits Of Wearing Sunscreen
Decreases the look of hyperpigmentation
Reduces the risk of Melanoma or burning
Helps maintain elasticity of skin (Signs of Aging etc)
For all of my makeup wearers who desire to throw their sunscreen on before a cute look, the innisfree Matte Priming UV Shield sunscreen helps you skip a step and save time by also acting as a primer for your makeup! This product does leave a mild white tint that is not noticeable after makeup is applied on top of it.
This Supergoop Daily Dose Vitamin C + SPF 40 Sunscreen Serum PA +++ can sit in for your daily serum as the benefits are worth it! After your face has been washed, apply this serum for an instant glow and moisturize! This serum has no white tint and glides onto the skin.
I have been using this sunscreen for years and it has not disappointed me. If you are looking for a scentless, non white tinted sunscreen that rolls onto the skin effortlessly. This is it! I apply this after my moisturizer and then makeup if I plan on wearing some for that day.
I have recently started wearing this sunscreen more often. Anything by Dr.Dennis Gross seems to be a hit and works wonders! I apply this sunscreen after my face has been washed and moisturized. It is lightweight and has a very light white tint. The light tint is is barely noticeable and the product is lightweight on the skin. It also serves a dual purpose of helping fight wrinkles and leaves a beautiful glow!
Sunscreen is important year round, but as the sun starts to shine harder in the warmer coming months, try out these sunscreens to protect your investment and thank me later!
