Chanel Iman stays safe in the sun

I always look forward to this time of year as summer truly is the season for looking great, feeling good and most importantly, looking after yourself.

Sun protection is extremely important during high UVA and UVB months and although advertising is strictly focused toward the middle class white group, it is important that blacks and all other ethnic minorities embrace SPF.(Sun Protection Factor).

Use plenty of sun protection this summer

As a beauty consultant, I’m used to hearing most ladies of colour refuse to wear any sort of sun protection on their skin as apparently ‘we don’t burn in the sun’.

Although this can be true for some skin types as it is said that with darker skin your 10-20 times less likely to get the most serious type of skin cancer, Cancer Research UK still advises that black people wear a SPF of at least 15 to avoid skin cancer, which can show up late in darker skin because of our melanin pigment.

As boring as it may sound, being safe does not have to be dull. In fact, according to Clinique, the only beauty company in the world to have 100 per cent allergy tested beauty products, being SAFE IS THE NEW SEXY.
