DEW THE MOST Sheer Moisturizer SPF 30

“Although Moisture is in its name, the DEW THE MOST Sheer Moisturizer is an SPF 30 and it is a sunscreen that is essential in every skincare routine,” Dr. Davis explained. ‘It has light hydration that blends without a trace to provide sun protection and is perfect for daily use in the AM. As we know with skin of color, it can be challenging to find sunscreens that blend well with different skin tones. MELÄ’ Skincare has developed this lightweight moisturizing SPF that I know consumers are going to love.”

And while many of us who were blessed in the melanin department have been led to believe that we do not require sunscreen, this couldn’t be more wrong.

“I can never speak enough about the importance of sun protection in all skin types,” Dr. Davis admonished. “While skin of color does have an SPF factor of 13, sun protection is essential for helping to maintain an even skin tone. If someone has dark spots or blemishes, the sun can actually stimulate those spots to get darker, hence sun protection is important. Also, as we age, often I will see skin of color patients who report blotchiness in their skin tone. That is also due to years of unprotected sun exposure. So it is just as important for darker skin types to use sunscreen as fairer skin types.”
