As an African American, do I need sunscreen?

Yes. Even African Americans should be careful about exposure and may suffer skin damage from the sun. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends routine use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or greater for all people – regardless of skin color.
