EltaMD wants you to know that sun causes 90% of all skin cancers! Overcast days are not much safer than those that are sunny, as 70-80% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays can get through the clouds and is about 80% stronger when reflected off sand and snow. Not only does the sun cause unsightly wrinkles and dark spots, it even weakens the immune system, reducing your defense against infection. All the more reason to BE PROTECTED! Robertson Skin and Laser Center have recently added the following three EltaMD sun care products to offer our patients the best:
EltaMD UV Aero SPF 45
This Broad-Spectrum SPF 45 is the first of its kind! The only continuous spray zinc based sunscreen on the market (9.30% zinc oxide & 7.50% Ocinoxate ), UV Aero is ideal for all skin types and safe for use on children. With UV Aero you get the convenience of a spray-on application that goes on white to be sure of adequate coverage but then dries clear. Best for use on the body, UV Aero is oil-free, water resistant and provides both UVA and UVB protection.
EltaMD UV PHYSICAL BROAD-SPECTRUM SPF 41
This physical block is chemical free with 9% Zinc Oxide and 7% Titanium Dioxide, is water resistant and absorbs quickly into the skin. UV Physical 41 provides exceptional mineral UV protection, which is ideal for those with sensitive skin and children. Due to the high concentration of zinc, a light tint has been added to mask the pasty white look that can result from zinc based products. UV Physical 41 is noncomedogenic, paraben-free, fragarance-free and best of all contains antioxidants to neutralize free radicals to prevent future UV damage.
EltaMD UV Lip Balm Broad-Spectrum SPF 31
This moisturizing lip sunscreen contains 5% Hydromanil to provide immediate and long-lasting moisture plus antioxidants and UVA/UVB protection. This balm is ideal to protect and sooth dry, chapped and sun-exposed lips all year long.
