This com­mon mis­con­cep­tion could re­sult in skin can­cer. Although melanin helps to block UV rays to a cer­tain ex­tent, the sun af­fects ev­ery­one – in­clud­ing those with black and brown skin. We should all be wear­ing sun­screen daily, even when it is cloudy out­side. Sun­screen of­ten used to look chalky on darker skin, but newer for­mu­la­tions blend seam­lessly on all com­plex­ions.
