Reflecting upon her venture into the skincare market, Rihanna recalled one major faux pas she’s committed against her skin: not wearing sunscreen. Growing up in Barbados, the star perceived sunscreen as a “tourist thing” and opted out of wearing it.

But Rihanna felt the weight of her error when she noticed sun damage and discoloration appearing on her skin.  Now a major SPF-advocate, the singer hopes to share the importance of skincare in the sun. She especially urges young Black women to heed her warning.

You always thought that SPF was a tourist thing, and especially not for black people,” the star explained. “I think the biggest misconception with SPF, in particular, is that black people don’t need it. And as a woman of color, I am here to say that’s a lie. We need it, and we need it every day.

In terms of her music, Rihanna’s most recent studio album, Anti-, celebrated its fourth anniversary this past January. Although she currently has a new album in the works, she’s yet to announce its official title or release date. However, the star has teased that her upcoming record has strong reggae influences.
