I’ve always encouraged my clients to wear sunscreen on a regular basis. After working for a dermatologist and seeing the the damage that the sun can do, I doubled down on my stance. Years of not protecting skin with sunscreen can cause premature aging (leathery appearance, sagging, discoloration). Causes skin inflammation. And, in a worst case scenario, skin cancers. So many of these instances can be highly reduced by wearing sunscreen.
There is no excuse for EVERYONE not wearing an SPF of some sort. It can be found in all types of retailers from your local pharmacy to high end department stores and everything in between. Listed below are some of my favorites in no particular order. All of the selected products work well on darker skintones and won’t turn you purple or make you ashy!
