OK, let’s be honest for sec: when it comes to the use of sunscreen in the African-American community, especially amongst men, it’s pretty much non-existent. We all know that Black don’t crack. Most of us feel we’re blessed with enough melanin to semi-protect us from the harsh sun damage many of our counterparts are prone to. But the truth is: we still need sun protection. Therefore, we’ve outlined the best sunscreens for you. Thank us in a few years.
