We all know that sunscreen is a very important summer item to have on hand, but with so many out there how do you choose?
For an area as sensitive as the face there are MANY options, but you need to be very picky with your choice:
–Ray Coverage: The sun has two different rays that effect the skin: UVA and UVB. Broad spectrum sunscreens contain ingredients that help protect against both harmful rays.
–Ingredients: Zinc is one of the best one to look out for. It is an anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory making it ideal for sensitive to acne-prone skin
–SPF (sun protection factor): No sunscreen protects 100%, but the each level has different coverage. SPF 15 =93% , SPF 30 =97%, and SPF 50 =98%. You should choose and reapply based on your level of activity. The more exfoliation during a treatment can an affect on the level you should choose and your esthetician will help!
Our choice for almost every facial is Skin Script Sheer Protection SPF 30: a lightweight sunscreen that is applied AFTER the hydrating step for extra protection and coverage, perfect for all skin types dry-oily. Perfect size for travel and reapplication throughout the day
