3 Best Sunblocks to Buy This Summer + Bonus

Hey y’all. I’ve been receiving a lot of questions about which sunblock to use for a specific purpose and which are great to use to protect your skin from turning dark. People who are into skin whitening or even those who just want to keep their skin protected from harsh UV rays may find this post useful. I remember posting my favorite sunblocks last 2014 and ever since then, I just kept 3 of the most useful. Now unless a new, better product comes out. I’ll keep this list updated. Always. πŸ™‚

Before anything else, why should you use a sunblock? Not just to avoid your skin from darkening. Too much sun exposure can make our skin prone to skin cancer, and speed up the aging process.
