As beauty and skincare companies continue to embrace diversity, products geared towards healthier skin are more popular than ever.

Health advocates and beauty gurus have turned their focus onto the importance of sun protection — particularly for darker skin tones and brands have followed suit by introducing new products.

Traditional sunscreen products were often chalky and dull or cast a grayish tint when used by people with darker skin tones. This new breed of products boasts tailor-made solutions with options that moisturize, sit well under makeup and don’t make skin too oily or too dry.
