Sunscreens for Summer!

As the days get warmer, we know you'll be spending your days enjoying this wonderful, yet ever changing, Virginia weather. Now more than ever, sunscreen becomes vital for blocking those harsh UV rays, and we are here to give you our recommendations for the best, -loving sunscreens! 

For our patients who are wanting a quick and simple addition to their routine, we recommend using the Elta-MD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 sunscreen! There’s no white cast, and it’s full of ingredients your skin will love! There is also a tinted version of this, for our patients who want to skip the foundation and have a product that protects and evens their complexation.

Got kids? Sunscreen and kids have never been the bestest of friends, but with the Elta-MD UV Stick Broad-Spectrum SPF 50+, you and your kid’s skin will thank you! With it being in stick form, there’s no need to spray directly into your little one’s faces, and with the easy and quick application - they’ll be ready for the park or beach in no time.

For our patients wanting to find sunscreens at your drugstore or Target, look no further! We recommend CeraVe and La Roche-Posay products. The CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 30 is the perfect, affordable step to add to your morning! Since it’s both a moisturizer and an SPF, you’re getting the benefits of both in one easy product! The La Roche-Posay Anthelios Sunscreen with SPF 50 is another quick and easy product you can find at your local Target. Since it’s a mineral sunscreen, you’re getting the most protection from the UV rays while staying on budget. It comes both as tinted and untinted, so it’s really adaptable and fool proof for your busy schedule.

Raise your hand if you have sensitive skin! It can be such a struggle to find non-comedogenic (non pore clogging) products for your skin. Sunscreen especially can have many different ingredients that cause sensitive skin to break out. You end up with a cemetary of products without having found something that works for you. Well, fear not! We recommend all Vanicream products, but if we’re talking sunscreen, their Vanicream Facial Moisturizer Broad-Spectrum SPF 30 is great for both your wallet and your sensitive skin! It’s free of dyes, fragrances, and parabens, and will make your skin glowy and protected. 

Here at Absolute Dermatology, we not only promote preventative actions for skin cancer, but we also promote summer fun! Keep you and your loved ones protected with sunscreen and we wish you a happy summer!
