Do people with dark skin need to wear SPF?

SPF is important all year round, not just during the summer months. UV rays are active even on cloudy days and the sun can still cause damage to our skin in all seasons! 

Dermatologist Jenny Liu says “Wear sunscreen every single day, regardless of rain or shine, because UV rays will come through clouds and windows and damage skin no matter what the weathers like.” 

Do people with darker skin need to wear sunscreen?

There are many myths around people with darker skin not needing SPF, but the reality is regardless of your skin colour, you need SPF! 

Not only does sunscreen help protect your skin from burning, but also it prevents signs of ageing, hyperpigmentation and reduces the risk of developing skin cancer. 

Applying sunscreen should be the last step in your daily morning routine after you moisturise.
