We鈥檝e all heard about the damage the sun can wreak on your skin, but currently, a lot of the offerings on the sunblock market are less-than-ideal solutions for those with darker toned skin. Thanks to the most common active ingredients in sunblock, a lot of moisturizers with SPF tend to leave an icky white cast. But one brand is saying, no more.

Meet Bolden鈥檚 SPF 30 Brightening Moisturizer ($28). The all-in-one product has antioxidants, hydrating ingredients, AND suncare, so it not only protects; it also improves the look and feel of your skin. Plus, it was formulated specifically for people of color 鈥 this means it was created without some of the ingredients we鈥檙e used to seeing in 鈥渢raditional鈥 sunscreen that leave the ghostly residue. Instead, the Brightening Moisturizer trades zinc oxide or titanium dioxide for octinoxate and avobenzone.

Dr. Joyce Park, dermatology resident in NYC and health/beauty blogger at Tea With MD, tells Brit + Co, 鈥淥ctinoxate and avobenzone are both considered chemical blockers, which work by absorbing UV radiation and turning it into heat energy. This is in contrast to physical blockers such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, which act as a shield on top of the skin deflecting UV rays.鈥

Physical blockers are the ones that leave your skin chalky-looking even after they鈥檙e rubbed in, although this isn鈥檛 nearly as noticeable on people with fair skin. A word of warning though: Chemical blockers can sometimes cause problems for those with sensitive skin.

Park also dispels the myth that folks with darker tones don鈥檛 need protection from the sun. 鈥淲hile people with dark skin have more melanin, which helps to protect their skin from UV rays, they are still at risk for developing different types of skin cancer, including melanomas,鈥 she tell us, 鈥淯V rays also contribute to photoaging, and regular use of sunscreen can help prevent the formation of wrinkles, dark spots, and sagging leathery skin.鈥 So always make sure you鈥檙e covered!
