Sunscreen SPF 30-50

Apply (tinted) SPF 30-50 on face every AM. A 100% mineral sunscreen like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide is recommended, but chemical sunscreens are better than no SPF at all!

Why? Mineral sunscreens deflect harmful UV rays whereas chemical sunscreens absorb them and protect though a chemical reaction.

Any sunscreen is better than no sunscreen, but many facial sunscreens are expensive so make sure they are 100% mineral sunscreens. EltaMD Physical is my favorite in general for everyone. Many of these do need a setting powder after. If you have darker skin, La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF 50 has a darker tint.

If you tend to be oily, there are matte tinted sunscreens, and my favorite example of this is Skinceuticals Physical Matte UV Defense 50.

My goal is for you to take this information and screen products for yourself! In recent years, there have been research studies about chemical sunscreens that have led many to avoid oxybenzone due to high systemic absorption levels. There are 5 other ingredients that 'further testing is recommended.' More research is necessary to determine if absorption equals risk.

We do know that the possible risks from these sunscreen ingredients is still lower than the risk of skin cancer without sunscreen so KEEP WEARING SUNSCREEN DAILY. If you are concerned, then stick to mineral sunscreens for face and body. Better yet, put mineral sunscreen on your face, neck, chest, back of hands every AM after brushing your teeth and wear UPF clothing, a hat, and stay in the shade! Tip: The term 'baby' on sunscreens mean they have zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide, and are 100% mineral sunscreens (meaning there are no other chemical sunscreen ingredients mixed in).

Did you know? There are not that many ingredients in skincare.

The marketing and different mixtures = the expansive skincare market.

When I create a #customskincare routine, I’m grouping ingredients in the right concentration and vehicle (serum v moisturizer) for YOU, your skin and goals.

I don’t get excited about a product until I turn it around and check out the active ingredients👏🏼
