6 Sunscreens That Won’t Leave You Ashy

July 14, 2016  |  



Warmer weather equals more time spent outdoors soaking up the Vitamin D and basking in the light. While we all know that Vitamin D is good for you and very necessary – there are still a number of people in the African-American community who absolutely refuse to protect their skin during this time. Too much time in the sun without any type of barrier on can wreak all kinds of havoc in later years. I know they say that black doesn’t crack and that may be true, but sunburns are wack and melanoma is far from pleasant. Part of the reason more African-American’s don’t wear sunscreen is because they don’t want that white filmy layer that comes with “traditional” sunscreen formulas. There’s nothing worse than applying lotion and getting in the pool only to hop out hours later and notice the ashy gray cast as the product simply sits on top of the skin. To protect the skin you’re in and that of the ones you love – I’ve done the leg work and am here to hip you to the best sunscreens for your active lifestyle. You can thank us later.
