Who doesn’t love a little sunshine? The sun is beneficial for your health and well-being. However, unprotected skin puts you at risk for skin cancer, premature aging, and hyperpigmentation. When you’re out and about this summer, it’s important that you take proper precautions when it comes to your skin.
We recommend a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher for your daily sunscreen use. If you are more active with sports or swimming, or if you undergo any long-term sun exposure, then a sunscreen with a higher level of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide is recommended. These two ingredients give you more of water-resistant coverage, and they also protect against UVA and UVB rays.
Here at Monarch Skin Rejuvenation Center, we have a sunscreen for all skin types — whether you’re suffering from melasma, acne, or dry and sensitive skin on your face and body. We even have a powdered sunscreen, which makes it easier to reapply your sunscreen over your make-up. Monarch is also happy to introduce a new sunscreen from Obagi. Obagi Sun Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Infrared Defense protects your skin from UVA, UVB, and Infrared (IR) rays. The sunscreen is beneficial for summer’s heat-induced pigmentation. For those who are prone to melisma, this a must-have!
As always, consultations with Monarch Skin Rejuvenation Center are complimentary. Call now to set up an appointment, and one of our aestheticians will help find a sunscreen that works best for your skin type.
