Why Dermatologists Say You Should Wear Sunscreen Every Day
Source: Bliss

As a self-proclaimed sunscreen enthusiast who wears mineral SPF every single day (yes even at home, and even when it's cloudy!), who grew up surrounded by fair-skinned women who freckle easily, and who works in the beauty space, I thought I knew most of what there is to know about sunscreen. Turns out, it took just one conversation with a dermatologist to show me that I still have a lot to learn.

You probably don't need me to spell out the very real risks associated with skipping the sun protection, but what you might not realize is that the benefits of wearing mineral sunscreen go beyond just preventing melanoma or even fighting premature aging. And if you have even a remote interest in skin care, you might want to listen up. For example, did you know that it can help brighten your skin tone? Yeah, me neither!

Dr. Onyeka Obioha, board-certified dermatologist, explains all things mineral sunscreen: why you should wear it, what you should look for, and how much is really enough to get by every day. Ahead, I'm sharing all my learnings, including why the Bliss Block Star Mineral Daily Sunscreen (which won a POPSUGAR Beauty Award!) — with its sheer universal tint and never-chalky, never-greasy finish — is the one sunscreen you'll actually want to wear moving forward.
