As the warmer months approach, it’s time to update your skincare routine to ensure your skin remains healthy and vibrant. While winter may have called for heavier moisturizers, the spring and summer seasons are all about lightweight hydration and, most importantly, sun protection.

Understanding sun protection for melanin-rich skin

Despite the common belief that melanin-rich skin doesn’t require sunscreen, the truth is that everyone needs to protect their skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. While melanin does provide some natural protection, it’s not enough to fully shield us from potential damage, including premature aging, wrinkles, and dark spots.

Integrating SPF into your daily routine

Beauty brands have made it easier to incorporate sun protection into our daily routines by infusing SPF into everyday products. From foundations that offer coverage and sun defense to lightweight sunscreens that nourish the skin, there’s an array of options to keep your skin protected and glowing.

Five must-have SPF products for summer

Mad Hippie’s Luminizing SPF: A water-resistant, zinc-based sunscreen that also contains Niacinamide to combat signs of aging.

Toty’s Ilumina CC Creamy Compact: A 3-in-1 formula that combines makeup, sunscreen, and skincare with 50+ SPF.

EXO’s C-Serum: A serum designed to reduce hyperpigmentation and protect against photoaging, best applied during the day.

EXO Sun’s After Sun Treatment: A post-sun exposure product to rehydrate and minimize UV damage.

Fenty Skin’s HydraVizor Huez Tinted Moisturizer Mineral SPF 30: A tinted moisturizer that hydrates, protects, and offers light coverage with a dewy finish.

Embracing these SPF products can help maintain your skin’s health and appearance throughout the summer and beyond. Remember, protecting your skin from the sun is a year-round commitment!
