EltaMD® broad-spectrum sunscreens provide safe, broad-spectrum ultraviolet (UV) protection. A broad-spectrum sunscreen helps prevent sunburn and if used as directed with other sun protection measures, decreases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun. Ultraviolet, or UV rays, are part of the invisible energy that comes from the sun. UVA (aging) rays account for 95% of our sun exposure. They cause skin aging and contribute to skin cancer. UVA rays penetrate deeply into the skin layers, damaging collagen and cells which leads to wrinkling, hyperpigmentation and loss of elasticity.
When wearing EltaMD® sunscreens, the UVA and UVB rays reflect and scatter away from your skin, providing the ultimate protection. The sunscreens are formulated with transparent zinc oxide and are noncomedogenic, sensitivity-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free.
At Louisiana Women’s Aesthetics we are huge proponents of wearing sunscreen. In fact, applying sunscreen liberally should become part of your daily routine! But all creams, sprays, and lotions are not created equal.
