Enjoy an oil-free zinc oxide facial sunscreen that feels great on your skin!
Personal skin wellness rule #1: You have to wear sunscreen on your face every day to fight wrinkles and skin cancer.
Personal skin wellness rule #2: You have to LOVE your facial sunscreen.
If you don’t follow rule #2, then rule #1 is torture.
Because every person’s sunscreen love/hate preferences are different, there are many, many types of sunscreen bases. I’ve spent 30+ years helping my dermatology patients figure out how to find a facial sunscreen that is their perfect fit and I want to help you as you prepare for July 4th celebrations.
If you have not found your perfect facial sunscreen fit, I’ve got a great new one for you to try!
Did you notice that I said different “sunscreen bases” and not “sunscreens”?
That’s because mineral zinc oxide is the sunscreen active that I think gives the best protection. Zinc oxide sunscreen:
- Gives broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection that’s trustworthy;
- Lasts when you are in the sun (meaning it’s photostable); and
- Is non-irritating.
In the past, zinc oxide always left a little white tinge on darker skin tones. Now, there are invisible products available thanks to progress in zinc oxide chemistry.
I recommend that you wear a SPF 30+ broad spectrum zinc oxide sunscreen every day on your exposed facial skin. Apply it to your neck and ears, too. And, don’t forget the “V” of your chest if it’s exposed.
