Now listen, it does not matter what season it is, the sun is still out and you need to protect your skin all year! There is a myth that melaninated skin does not need sunscreen and that is absolutely not true. We need sunscreen because we want to look as young as we can right? Today’s Black Owned Business Feature is something that I was excited to see in the market and happy to support.
Black Girl Sunscreen was created in 2016 by Shontay Lundy. It was time for a sunscreen for women of color that didn’t give a white cast and cater to our skin. I’ll admit it has been hard for me to find a decent sunscreen for my face and in fact haven’t used it for a while until I discovered this brand. *Gasp* I have tried just about everything until I saw this on Instagram one day.
This sunscreen is filled with natural ingredients to not only protect our skin but to help with the overall appearance and health of our skin. This sunscreen helps with anti aging, inflammation, even complexion and so much more. I love this is more than just a sunscreen. Some of the key ingredients are avocado, jojoba, carrot juice and sunflower oil. Black Girl Sunscreen is also Oxybenzone and Octinoxate free which means this sunscreen is environmental friendly so you don’t have to worry about any toxins.
I have been faithfully using this for the past couple of months and it has not disappointed at all. It works so well with my moisturizer, does not give me a white or grey cast and I’ve noticed a different in my complexion since I started using this. I’ve used this not only on my face but on my body and I did not get sun burn at all. I would hight recommend this sunscreen if you are currently not using one or in search of a new one. You can find this online and now in Target.
Hope you guys enjoy your weekend and see you next week!
