Contrary to popular belief, excessive sun exposure does pose a risk of skin damage to people with dark skin. And although the rates of skin cancer are much higher for people with light skin, us melanated folks are also susceptible to skin cancer (this in-depth explainer breaks it all down.) FYI, wearing sunscreen is also the easiest, safest, and cheapest ways to reduce hyperpigmentation, so issa WIN WIN.

Well maybe you've already got the answers. Do you swear by Unsun Cosmetics Mineral Tinted Face Sunscreen for a non-white cast complexion?

Fun fact: this brand was founded by Frank Ocean's mother Katonya Breaux.

Do you stan for Black Girl Sunscreen's moisturizing formula and its hella FUBU name?
