We’re very excited about this new product! Leading sunscreen maker EltaMD has released a hydrating sunscreen specially formulated for acne prone skin. With an SPF of 46, this oil-free, noncomedogenic moisturizer leaves no residue, while calming and protecting sensitive skin types prone to acne, rosacea and discolouration from harmful UVA/UVB rays. This silky, lightweight formula can be worn alone or under makeup.
All EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with a natural mineral compound called zinc oxide. Unlike some chemical ingredients that may degrade, zinc maintains its protective ability in the sun, making it far more photostable than any sun protecting ingredient. Zinc blocks the widest spectrum of UVA and UVB rays while keeping the skin from burning and minimizing the premature appearance of aging and risk of skin cancer. Zinc is safe for even the most sensitive skin types!
Remember: The risks associated with sun exposure are not exclusive to the summer season, and protection from UV radiation is important all year round. UV rays from the sun can reach you even on cloudy days, and also reflect off of surfaces like water, cement, sand, and snow.
