Shades of Protection: Sunscreen for Every Hue

Rihanna’s devotion to inclusivity goes a long way in the sunscreen game since African-American women also require protection from the sun’s damaging rays.

Sunscreen is an often overlooked beauty routine step by people with darker skin tones. Fenty Skin has the solution with the Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer SPF 30. It is not just another sunblock but a revolutionary formula that offers effective protection regardless of skin color.

The oil-free and sheer finish will leave no trace of the so-called white cast and perfectly matches any skin tone. It will not hide the skin’s glow but will moisturize and protect the skin from harmful UV rays.

Fenty Skin's Cultural Impact

Fenty Skin is more than a collection of beauty and skin products. It is a cultural stance and confronts how beauty is traditionally perceived, which has dominated for way too long.

Rihanna has prompted discussions about the lack of representation in the beauty industry with skincare products designed specifically for women with varying skin tones. It goes beyond the bathroom mirror into show runways, meeting rooms, and daily existence.

"Skin-care is self-care," Rihanna told Vogue. "I am trying to get people into a ritual. Something that's really simple—three steps. We start there because skin care can get really complicated. It can get confusing, so I wanted to start with something that would be easy to understand so that people can get right to it."

For decades, women with darker complexions have struggled to find appropriate skincare products that address their individual needs. Fenty Skin bridges the gap with products that naturally appeal to the unique needs of melanated skin.

Rihanna’s skincare line is more than a skincare routine. It is evidence of inclusiveness and empowerment for women of color. Through Fenty Skin, Rihanna did not simply join the skincare market but is redefining it.
