Sunscreen for darker skin

Maria-Galland-Soft-and-Gentle-Cream-Deodorant-abloomnova.net_-1600x1067 Sunscreen for darker skin

If you have olive or dark skin, do you cover up in the sun? Do you liberally apply sunscreen, wear hats and stay out of the midday sun?

So you have tanned or darker skin, and you feel pretty well protected from the sun. Your skin contains way more melanin that your paler friends, so you can relax a little more when it comes to working or relaxing in the sunshine.

Right?

Wrong.

The threat of sun damage is just as risky whether you have light skin or paler skin.

Granted, most sunscreens are designed for delicate pale skin, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t protect yourself.

According to skincancer.org, individuals with darker skin who tan easily and rarely burn may feel they do not need to use sunscreen. However, like sunburn, a tan is the result of DNA damage from exposure to the sun’s harmful UV radiation. Darker-skinned people may also be wary of using physical sunscreens, especially titanium-based products because they can look chalky and white on the skin. Newer preparations, however, tend to be micronized, which means the particles are small enough to allow them to blend in and disappear into the skin. Chemical sunscreens are also an option; look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15+.
