Nothing ruins a day of fun quite like the itchy redness of sunburn. Be it on the tip of your nose, the back of your neck, or another unlucky patch of skin with too much UV-ray exposure, sunburns can be unsightly and incredibly uncomfortable. Not to mention they can have a lasting negative impact on the health of your skin.
According to Cancer Research UK, getting sunburn just once every two years greatly increase your risk of melanoma skin cancer, even in mild cases. This is a thought that keeps dermatologists up at night, and it’s why here at Etre Cosmetic Dermatology & Laser Center we want give you peace of mind in knowing your skin is being taken care of. We offer two of the most effective medical-grade sunscreen’s available today: EltaMD® and Intellishade® Original.
EltaMD Broad-Spectrum sunscreens come in a wide range of SPF levels and are an excellent option for the prevention sunburn, as well as reducing signs of aging caused by the sun. They are water resistant (for up to 40-minutes) and can boost your skin’s ability to retain moisture for a smooth, silky appearance. Also, while some large sunscreen companies use artificial chemicals in the formulation of their product, EltaMD’s mineral-based UV filters are completely noncomedogenic and paraben-free.
Our second option, Intellishade Original by Revision Skincare, is an award winning moisturizing sunscreen that provides both UVA and UVB protection while enhancing your skin’s natural glow. Like EltaMD, Intellishade Original works to fight the signs of aging and can have a positive effect on the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. We couldn’t recommend it more highly as the heat of summer descends upon us.
