I was never a sunscreen fan and never used it. This is the main reason I have sun damaged skin. EltaMD SPF 46 to the rescue! Tamara recommended this for me and I took her advice. I love this product! After using it, my skin does not look chalky and I never leave home with out it on. If I do forget, I turn right around and go back and put it on. I never realized how important sunscreen is in taking care of the skin ( including our beautiful black skin).
