Meet EltaMD – The Ideal Sunscreen
Now that we’ve shared what to look for in a sunscreen, we would love to share with you one of our favorite lines of sunscreens here at Dermatology and Plastic Surgery of Arizona. EltaMD is a line of sunscreens formulated with transparent zinc oxide and won’t clog pores. It is sensitivity-free, fragrance-free, and paraben-free. It is the ideal sunscreen for skin types that are prone to acne, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation. We love EltaMD because it is lightweight and silky and leaves no residue. It has both UVA and UVB sun protection, contains antioxidants, and is a natural mineral sunscreen. This makes it the ideal sunscreen for any skin type. With different levels of SPF protection, water resistance, and sweat protection, you will be sure to find the perfect EltaMD sunscreen for you.
To get the best benefit from your EltaMD sunscreen, remember to apply it 15-30 minutes before going out into the sun. Be generous with your sunscreen, making sure to cover all exposed parts of your body, even on a cloudy day. If you are planning to swim, reapply every forty to eighty minutes, otherwise reapply every two hours while enjoying the outdoors!
EltaMD also has a full line of facial cleansers, moisturizers, and other products, so it can even be an integral part of your entire skincare regime.
