Here at Joyful Skin, we believe that SPF is for everyone. Darker skin tones included! But we can often be put off wearing SPF as we may believe that it's just not for us. Either that, or we can't stand those streaky white marks. Sun protection is vital for battling those skin concerns that dark skin girls everywhere hate like hyperpigmentation.
