Sunscreen has come a long way over the last decade (thankfully!!). Sunscreen is the number one way to fight the signs of aging (hello, sign me up!!) If you are doing any type of repair services – think microderm, liquid dermabrasion, microchanneling, etc. – then you are going to want to protect your investment right? If so, then daily sunscreen use even in the winter time is a must. There are so many to choose from how do you know what is the best for you? The first question that you need to ask is do you want just a sunscreen or are you looking for tint/coverage as well? Let’s break down those two categories.
First up, sunscreen with tint. For those looking to add a little coverage, there are so many options. Tinted sunscreens are our most popular. Elta MD features several products with universal tint. My personal favorite is the UV Restore Tinted. It works to reverse the signs of aging, protects my skin and provides enough coverage that I don’t need a liquid foundation. For my teenage daughter, I love the UV Clear Tinted. She wears it daily as her “foundation” and I know that it is helping to keep her skin clear as well as protecting her from sun damage. This one also works well for my blond haired, blue eyed boy with sensitive skin. If you are looking for a more personalized tint in your sunscreen, Glo C-Shield Anti Pollution Moisture Tint SPF 30 is perfect for you. With ten shades to choose from, you are certain to find one that works perfectly for your skin. It features mineral makeup, reef-safe SPF and natural mineral pigment. The finish is sheer, dewy and radiant.
For those looking for just a sunscreen, Elta MD offers their Clear in a non-tinted formula. For those that are more active in the summer, the Elta MD UV Sheer is the perfect choice. This facial sunscreen offers up to 80 minutes of sweat and water-resistance making it ideal for an active lifestyle or anyone looking for a lightweight and hydrating sunscreen. For the Glo Skin Beauty lovers, the Oil Free SPF 40+ is a great option. It is weightless, has an invisible finish and hyaluronic acid. It's also 100% mineral.
So as you can see there are lots of options to choose from so everyone can find the perfect fit for them. I most definitely wear mine because I want to protect the great results I have seen from my visits to the med spa. Can’t wait to share some before and after pictures with you in a future post.
