Best sunscreen for dark skin in Nigeria + Best sunscreen for oily skin in Nigeria.

A Sunscreen, also known as sunblock, is a lotion, spray, gel, foam, or other topical product that absorbs or reflects some of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation and thus helps protect against sunburn.

Hyperpigmentation is a big skin issue.

If you have dark patches on your skin, daily sunscreen application can help it fade and also prevent it from getting darker.

Your skin tone will also improve since you aren’t exposed to the sun’s rays.

Clinical evaluation states that there is always an improvement in the skin’s appearances if you apply broad spectrum sunscreens.

Most sunscreen leave a white cast after application. It doesn’t really sink into your skin. It stands like a fence.

This kind of sunscreen isn’t really anybody’s favorite as it wouldn’t give chance for your makeups.

The best sunscreen you can get which sinks into the skin perfectly is Neutrogena hydro boost sunscreen:

Another good one is black girl sunscreen.

They have necessary ingredients that can help against wrinkling of the skin and hyper pigmentation.

The amount of sunscreen enough for your face and neck is determined by the two finger rule:

With the rule of nines, the body’s surface area is divided into 11 areas, each representing roughly 9% of the total (box). Sunscreen can be applied to each of these areas at a dose of 2 mg/cm2 if two strips of sunscreen are squeezed out on to both the index and middle fingers from the palmar crease to the fingertips. Just like this:

And it must be a daily application. The last thing on your routine and the last thing before makeup.

I don’t see any reason why you should complain of uneven skin tone when you use the right sunscreen in the right order. I hope we are clear.
