SPF That Will Leave You Glowing and Protected

Here’s a daily reminder: sunscreen is a non-negotiable in your skincare routine. Yes, even on cloudy days and yes, even when you’re only going to be outside for, like, 15 minutes. Beyond straightforward sun protection, wearing sunscreen can help you see results for skin concerns, faster. It can help reduce hyperpigmentation, fine lines, acne, and irritated skin. 

As a Black woman who also has oily skin, sunscreen shopping sometimes feels like a tedious task. I need one that doesn’t leave me looking too shiny or burn my eyes, and that won’t leave a white cast. You might be looking for the same, or something slightly different depending on your preferences. So here are some of my favourites, that work for all different types of skin types and concerns.

And remember that the best sunscreen is the one you’ll wear every single day, all year round.
