It's getting to be that time of year again when more people are aware and should be aware of the importance of wearing a sunscreen. Wearing a good physical block is not only your best defense against anti-aging, it is also very important in protecting your skin from melanoma and skin cancer.

Everyone knows at least to put on an SPF daily in the morning but no one seems to understand that your skin sunscreen does not last all day. Sunscreen has to be reapplied often – not only when doing outdoor activities. It is easier now than ever to purchase a great sunscreen; there are so many to choose from.  Our favorite sunscreen here at the office is Elta MD®.

We have formulas for oily skin, acne prone, dry skin, tinted and untinted.  We also have a full body sunscreen that is water resistant up to 80 minutes. Intellishade® from Revision is New Beauty Magazine’s Beauty Choice Award Winner broad spectrum SPF 45.  We also carry Avene® 50 face SPF for sensitive skin.

All are available for you to test at our sunscreen bar.
