Looking to keep your vitiligo sun-safe? You aren’t alone. Dermatologists recommend a broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 and higher for those with vitiligo. But finding the right one? That’s another story. That’s why we asked the vitiligo community for their opinions on sunscreens – and go-to product recommendations. It turns out that non-greasy, scent-free, long-lasting and affordable sunscreens were top priority for many with vitiligo. And brands like Neutrogena, Super Goop, Elta MD, Banana Boat, CeraVe and Sun Bum were the top-recommended brands that deliver.
