Contrary to popular belief, black does indeed crack – especially if it’s not taken care of. Although our precious shades of melanin cover us from the summer sun’s rays, we need a bit more to truly protect our skin from damaging UV rays and prevent the risk of skin cancer.
Fortunately, we don’t have to suffer through sunscreens that weren’t designed with darker skin tones in mind. Thanks to a few magical Black women, we found three protective potions created for us, by us, specifically to protect and nourish our melanin, and keep us on the road to ageless Angela Bassett-looking skin, all summer long.
So before you hit the road or air this Memorial Day weekend, make sure these sunscreens are in your bag – your skin will thank you later!
