I have been overly obsessed with "getting my skin together" lately and every where I look someone is screaming "SPF" at me. I'll be the first to admit that I was naive and never thought I needed sunscreen, due to the fact that my skin has tons of melanin. After a horrible sunburn in Turk and Caicos and a talk to with my dermatologist, I realized that I was horribly wrong. I NEED SUNSCREEN!
Benefits of Sunscreen:
- Protects your skin from rays that can lead to hyperpigmentation
-Prevents premature aging
-Lower skincare risk
Did you know that the sun can exacerbate the presence of hyperpigmentation and dark spots? No? Well neither did I. While speaking to my dermatologist she stressed to me how sunscreen is important to help fade the dark spots. In my case I have hyperpigmentation from acne (that I've been practically battling since puberty). Now I'm going to let you guys in on a little beauty secret my dermatologist gave me, sunscreen and Retin A is the secret to having great skin. (shh don't tell anyone) . So I decided to bulk up on the SPF and make sure that I include it in everyday skin care routine. Check out some of my recent purchases that are loaded with SPF!
