The summer is heating up! Are you prepared to prevent those UVA/UVB rays from penetrating your skin? WDC has added EltaMD broad-spectrum sunscreens to our line of sun protection. The ultraviolet light from the sun causes the skin to age and can contribute to skin cancer. UVA rays penetrate deeply into the skin layers, damaging collagen and cells which leads to wrinkling, hyperpigmentation and loss of elasticity. UVB (burning) rays mostly affect the outer layer of the skin. They cause sunburns and tanning that increase the risk of skin cancer and other disorders.
Besides being Dr. Roz’s favorite brand of sunscreen and InStyle Magazine’s “Best Beauty Buys of 2014”, EltaMD has been dedicated to making innovative sun care products for over 25 years. Their sunscreens are broad spectrum and provide safe UV protection.
What is special about EltaMD?
EltaMD offers superior noncomedogenic sun protection formulas that are paraben-free, oil- free, fragrance-free and chemical-free making them the perfect choice for sensitive skin, rosacea, and acne-prone skin. This is important to many people when choosing a sunscreen due to sensitivities in their skin. Their formulations are perfect for all skin types and ages. They also are super easy to apply which is important for everyone. From their tinted facial sunscreen which doesn’t leave you white and pasty, to their Aero spray which actually goes on your skin vs. just all over the air like many other brands. You won’t miss having to hold your breath when applying this sunscreen.
How do EltaMD sunscreens work?
All EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with zinc oxide, a natural, mineral compound. Because zinc maintains its protective ability in the sun, it is more photostable than some chemical ingredients that may degrade. Zinc blocks the widest spectrum of UVA and UVB rays, protecting skin against burning and the premature appearance of aging and risk of skin cancer. Zinc causes the UVA and UVB rays to reflect and scatter away from your skin, providing you protection from sunburn. Zinc is safe for even the most sensitive skin types. The zinc oxide in EltaMD sunscreen formulations is transparent.
