Hypoallergenic Sunscreens and Sun Protection

Sun Protection Products and Kits

Sunscreen, called sunblock in the past, is a necessary part of your skin care routine.

Did you know that if you are not using the best broad spectrum sun protection products, then you may be doing more harm than good to your skin when you apply sunscreen?

Believe it or not, it's true. Yes, your sunscreen may be allowing more UVA damage to happen to your skin than if you used no sunscreen at all! This is because your sunscreen may be letting you stay in the sun longer because it's preventing sunburn with a high SPF. Since you're not getting sunburned, you stay out in the sun longer and get more UVA exposure than if you actually felt the sunburn and got out of the sun! My sunscreen products are designed to reduce harmful UVA as well as UVB rays.

My sunscreens offer the best dermatologist recommended sunscreen products for any type of skin, with SPF factors from 30 to 50+. All of my sunscreens are mineral zinc oxide products appropriate for sensitive skin.

Only the best sunscreens do a good job protecting your skin from the harmful UVA rays, as well as n the UVB rays that cause sunburn. Unfortunately, choosing the best sun protection products is really confusing. There are thousands of products on the market, all claiming broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, but many fail to do a good job blocking the UVA range of harmful rays. Others break down quickly as UV rays hit the sunscreen layered on your skin. This means you run out of protection. This is why you sunburn even when you’ve applied sunscreen.

It takes a dermatologist or sunscreen formulation chemist to really know if a sunscreen provides the best and most complete sun protection possible. I make that my business and recommend only the best products to my patients, my family, and customers like you. I only trust zinc oxide products, and that's what I recommend. It’s also what I’ve used every day on my own fair skin.

My sun protection products include only the best sunscreen (sunblock) ingredients for all your skin, including your lips. You need sunscreen for daily wear, water resistant products for wet and sweaty times in the sun, and a range of products to fit everyone’s skin type. Whether you want an oil free sunscreen, a natural sunscreen, reef safe sunscreens or a range of sunscreens, I’ve got "em because I want you to love your sunscreen! Plus, you can even save money by making your own sun protective clothing with Sun Guard.

Here is my proven dermatologist's sun protection strategy.

First, cover as much of your skin as you can with sun protective clothing. You can make your own sun protective clothing with Sun Guard.

Then, for the skin you can't cover, ASK yourself how well your exposed skin is protected:

A: Apply broad spectrum mineral zinc oxide SPF 30+ sunscreen on all of your exposed skin. Reapply your sunscreen as recommended when you are in the sun. That means every 2 hours and after sweating, swimming or rubbing your sunscreen off of your skin. Don’t forget lips and scalp!

S: Seek the shade or create it!  Wear a proper sun hat to protect the top of your scalp and to create shade for your face, ears and neck. Use a UPF 50 umbrella to create portable shade (it's cooler under an umbrella too - so see how many friends you make!). Wear UV blocking glasses to protect your eyes, and seek out the shady places when possible.

K: Know your UV exposure risk by understanding the UV ray intensity where you are. UV rays bounce off things like sand, cement, buildings (yep). They are harmful in morning and evening. The rays are most intense around the equator and during the middle of the day in the summer. Use the Detecto Ring to test your knowledge and learn those surprising places where you think you are safe, but you’re exposed (i.e. some windows, some shade etc.)

See my Dr. Bailey’s Sunscreen Comparison Chart to pick the sunscreens that meet your needs.

What is the best hypoallergenic sun protection for sensitive skin?

To protect the skin that you can’t cover with sun protective clothing, apply an SPF 30+ broad spectrum zinc oxide product. 

I know that sun protection is really important for your skin so I give you complete, 'turn-key' sun protection - and I've thought of everything for you.
