Sunscreen Recommendations

by Lety Soto CMA

The use of everyday sun protection is a very important part of any skincare regime. Daily use will help delay premature environmental aging caused by the sun’s harmful rays.  Most people don’t like to use daily sunscreen for various reasons the most common are: “It’s too thick and mask like”

“I don’t want to clog my pores”

“I Never go out into the sun”

“The sun doesn’t come out until May”

“I don’t need sunblock I’m half Italian half Portugeese”

Many new advances have changed the look and feel of sunscreens; some of the new ingredients not only prevent sun damage but also help repair it.

Neutrogena® Ultra Sheer™ Dry-Touch Sunblock has an ultra light clean feel.  Dry-

Touch technology absorbs excess sunscreen oils, leaving a clean, lightweight, non-shiny finish. This technology has also incorporated a pleasant scent.

For those with a more active lifestyle such as hiking, swimming or anything that will have you exposed to the sun for an extended period of time Ocean Potion® Face is a sporty alternative. 

My top choice for an every day allover sunscreen is Epiceuticals™ Rejuvenating Sunblock.   I love this product!  Rejuvenating Sunblock has a wonderful scent, contains beneficial botanical antioxidants that help prevent collagen and elastin breakdown and lightly hydrates your skin.  This product falls under the category of prevention and treatment.  Also, although it contains zinc oxide it’s in a micronized formula that goes on smooth and doesn’t make you look like a ghost.

*Please note that although the term waterproof is used many labels, the reality is that any sup protection product should be applied every 2-3 hours while you are exposed to the sun and should always be applied after swimming or excessive sweating.
