Rihanna just schooled followers on wearing SPF year-round

With one expertly executed clapback

Of course she’s 1000 per cent right, too (did you expect any different?) – sunscreen should be worn every damn day, rain, hail or shine. After all, if one simple step can help shield your skin from early signs of ageing (ranging from discolouration and skin cancers to, as our sunscreen queen mentioned, wrinkles), why would we ever skip it?

This isn't the first time Rihanna's cleared up an SPF misconception, either: “I think the biggest [one] with SPF in particular, is that Black people don’t need it, and as a woman of colour I’m here to say that’s a lie,” she said during a Fenty Skin Zoom launch earlier this year.

Growing up on an island, you’re exposed to the sun every day, so you thought SPF was like a tourist thing, and especially not for Black people, [but] I have learned the hard way, because over time the sun wasn’t that kind to my skin. SPF is for everyone and every day."

Long story short? Apply your SPF year-round – it’s what Rihanna would want.
