Being an L.A. girl and all, it’s kind of in my DNA to worship the sun. The hotter months are my favorite times of the year. When summer rolls around, you can find me in my element which is lounging by the pool with good reads or taking a stroll along the beach.
We have sunny days most of the year so I’ve trained myself to wear SPF daily. It doesn’t matter if I’m on the beach, or if I’m in the middle of a hurricane—my sunscreen is always in my bag because it’s an essential part of my daily routine.
As a black woman, there was one point in my life where I often wondered if I even needed to wear sunscreen. Darker skin types have more melanin in their skin, which give some extra UV protection, but UV rays can still penetrate our skin and damage both the epidermis and deeper collagen.
We often here the term, “black don’t crack” when it comes to us black folks and our skin. Yes, dark skin does age well, but I should still protect my skin to keep it that way. Today, I’m a daily devotee to sunscreen! I’ve been using Olay Complete All-Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 and I’m absolutely loving it!
I’ll be traveling to Santa Barbara in a few weeks so I definitely can’t pack my bag without it. It will provide me 48 hours of long lasting hydration and its SolaSheer Technology will help prevent premature skin damage.
I love that this moisturizer is super lightweight yet packed with antioxidants to condition my skin. And it’s not like your standard sunscreen either. No white cast, no horrid smell and no shiny face! I can’t get enough of it and the feel is incredibly moisturizing. ⠀
I’ve used a pricier brand in the past, but I plan on sticking with Olay because I find it slightly better and you just can’t beat the price.
