How Can EltaMD Protect Your Skin?

eltamdUV radiation is a major contributing factor to both premature signs of aging and the development of skin cancer. Thus, protecting your skin from UV radiation can help you look younger and stay healthier throughout your lifetime. Specialists in Dermatology proudly offers the EltaMD line of skincare products to protect your skin from UV radiation in Tucson. Broad-Spectrum Sun Care There are two types of UV radiation that harm the skin: UVA and UVB. Broad-spectrum sun care refers to products that protect the skin from both types of damaging radiation at the same time. All EltaMD sunscreens provide broad-spectrum protection to prevent all forms of sun damage, including wrinkles and skin cancer development. Zinc Oxide Products EltaMD sunscreens contain zinc oxide as their active ingredient. Zinc oxide is a naturally-occurring mineral that has been found to have photostable broad-spectrum UV-blocking qualities. This mineral is also appropriate for use with all skin types, preventing irritation of sensitive skin or other dermatological conditions. Water-Resistant Options Many of EltaMD’s sunscreen options are water-resistant, meaning they won’t wash off when swimming or sweating. Thus, after applying an EltaMD sunscreen, you can enjoy continuous sun protection regardless of your location or activity level for up to 80 minutes between recommended reapplications. Face and Body Products EltaMD’s line of sunscreens includes products specifically formulated for face, lip, and body use. With many products to choose from, you can tailor your sun protection to your exact needs, preventing burns, dry skin, premature aging, and skin cancer. Additionally, EltaMD’s facial sunscreens contain hyaluronic acid, which helps to improve the look of the skin and promote moisture retention for skin that is not only protected, but more youthful and supple as well.
