The Truth About Sunscreens

MYTH: "I only need to wear sunscreen on bright, sunny days"

FACT: Sunscreen/SPF should be worn EVERYDAY!  Skin can absorb the same amount of harmful UVA/UVB rays on a cloudy day as it does on a sunny day.  It's recommended to wear a minimum SPF 30 everyday ran or shine!

At Orange Blossom Aesthetics we carry EltaMD Skin Care, which has a variety of sunscreens with options for all skin types and different tints.  These sunscreens are formulated more like moisturizers, with ingredients like hyaluronic acid to help with hydration and transparent zinc oxide so you won't be left with a chalky complexion.

Be sure to choose a Medical Grade Sunscreen.  They are rigorously quality-tested and are made up of naturally occurring chemicals that are safe for you and your family.  The two active ingredients you want to look for are either Titanium
Dioxide or Zinc Oxide.  Medical grade products penetrate the skin better and deliver a higher concentration of active ingredients.  Higher amounts of active indredients = better skin!  They are also cosmeticcally more elegant, leading to better compliance of use on a daily basis and no greasy feeling left on the skin.  They are comfortable enought to be worn under makeup and should be a part of your everday routine!

We offer complimentary Visia Skin Analysis consultations and together we can determine which SPF is best for your skin and start creating healthy skincare habits!
