Myth: Dark Complexions Offer Adequate SPF

Posted on: August 9, 2012

“While darker skin tones offer a natural SPF ranging from 5-13, this isn’t enough to keep your skin protected. The sun may not have your skin “seeing red,” but that doesn’t mean it’s not making its mark.  Those with darker complexions might not see the accelerated wrinkles as soon, but they are more susceptible to other signs of aging like skin growths, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone.

Most important, a sunburn is a warning; it’s the sun’s way of telling you it’s time to get out of the sun. Without the redness and burning sensation that accompanies a sunburn, those with darker complexions are less likely to sense the signal to get out of the sun. With skin cancer on the rise for all ethnic groups, sunscreen is an anti-aging opportunity all people should take advantage of year round”. DermRF
