EltaMD Sunscreens Provide Safe, Natural UV Protection
August is the hottest and sunniest time of year in Michigan. So, most of us are anxious to hit the beach and enjoy other outdoor activities – from cycling and hiking to backyard barbeques. Of course, by now everyone knows that sunscreen should be applied daily to protect the skin from dangerous UV rays.
Proper skin protection is the most effective way to ward of lines, wrinkles, age spots and other signs of aging. Sunscreen is also the best way to avoid the development of skin cancer. But, with so many sunscreens on the market, it is hard to know which brand is best for our skin.
At AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Birmingham, MI, we have done the research for you! And, the clear winner is the EltaMD comprehensive line of sunscreens. EltaMD sunscreens are fragrance-free so you don’t smell like a Pina Colada all day. And they are noncomedogenic – which means they do not clog pores.
We love EltaMD sunscreens because they are lightweight and creamy sunscreen, absorb quickly and leaves no white cast. Even EltaMD offers a wide range of sunscreen formulas – with one that is right for virtually every skin care need.
Because we are such big fans of EltaMD’s spectrum of sun protectors for all skin types and concerns, offer these products for purchase at the best prices possible to our patients in our Birmingham Med Spa. Below is a discussion of some of our favorite EltaMD sunscreen products, to help you choose the UV protection that is right for your skin type and your lifestyle.
EltaMD UV Restore Tinted Broad-Spectrum SPF 40 Sunscreen
This sunscreen is great for pairing with a daily makeup look that is dewy and natural, with just a touch of bronze. This slightly tinted mineral sunscreen conceals flaws – blending out discolorations and toning down redness – while adding just a natural pop of color and glow to the skin.
The iron oxides in this formula help to filter visible light and aid in the prevention of hyperpigmentation. Additionally, ginger root and saccharide isomerate (a sugar like molecule) are active components that assist in reducing dark spots.
Another important component, squalane, promotes all day hydration by naturally locking in moisture without disturbing the skin’s delicate skin barrier – which makes it ideal for those with sensitive skin.
EltaMD UV Sheer Broad-Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen
When the weather begins to climb on humid days in Michigan, nothing beats EltaMD UV Sheer Broad-Spectrum SPF 50. This sunscreen formula prevents 98 percent of UVB rays – yet is breakout-free a result of the product’s noncomedogenic nature, which does not clog pores.
I’s thin, glossy texture means it can be applied liberally without the danger of going overboard since the sunscreen almost melts into the skin upon application, completely absorbing. And since it is also water- and sweat-resistant it won’t come off after a swim or a run. Unlike other brands of high-protection sunscreens it never feels sticky, even in high humidity, and provides sun protection without the white cast.
EltaMD UV Clear Tinted Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 Sunscreen
EltaMD UV Clear Tinted Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 is ideal for patients with acne-prone skin. Two important components in this product are niacinamide and hyaluronic acid, which help soothe and protect the skin from irritation.
In addition to being an excellent option for anybody suffering from acne, it is also ideal for men and women suffering from rosacea or hyperpigmentation. And for patients whose complexion may be very dry, particularly in specific areas around the face, hyaluronic also rehydrates skin, while acting as a sun-protected concealer replacement. There really is nothing that this sunscreen cannot accomplish!
EltaMD UV Replenish Broad-Spectrum SPF 44 Sunscreen
EltaMD UV Replenish Broad-Spectrum SPF 44 is excellent for patients prone to dry, parched skin. Someone with dry can reap the benefits from using this sunblock even if they are not going outside.
Daily use of this sunscreen may result in noticeably plumper, more moisturized skin. This formula includes hyaluronic acid (sodium hyaluronate), a humectant with a 1,000-fold capacity to retain water, as well as a moisturizing component called dimethicone, which traps moisture in the skin and helps it retain hydration.
We love EltaMD UV Replenish Broad-Spectrum SPF 44 so much we have put in on sale at 10% off for the Month of August 2021, so all of our patients can experience the amazing skin replenishing benefits that this product offers in addition to excellent sun protection.
