Top 3 SPF Products to Prevent Sun Damage

Spring has sprung, which means it’s time to break out the SPF. Whether you enjoy traditional outdoorsy activities like camping and hiking, enjoy the simple freedom to sit outside on a deck without shivering, or are getting ready to embark on a spring break vacation, it’s imperative that you protect your skin against the sun’s harmful rays.

There are three types of UV rays: UVA, UVB, and UVC rays. The first two— UVA and UVB— are the two that cause sun damage and skin cancer and the ones we’re concerned with protecting against.

UVA rays are longer and are what cause the skin to tan. Unfortunately, these rays also age skin cells, and they are linked to damage such as wrinkles and brown spots. UVA sun damage can be sneaky. You may not feel any pain or discomfort, but your skin is still being damaged.

UVB rays, on the other hand, are shorter and have slightly more energy than UVA rays. They are the rays that cause sunburns and most skin cancers.

However, both cause damage, making it important to protect against both.

Daylight savings may be an uplifting time of year, but don’t let that distract you from taking care of yourself. Here are our 3 favorite products to help you stay protected as you celebrate the shifting seasons:

Clear Defense SPF 45

For anyone on the go, this is the SPF for you. Lightweight and fast-absorbing, Clear Defense SPF 45 provides the highest possible level of protection without leaving behind residue. Additionally, this product uses botanically-based actives and is the first of its kind to prevent damage from infrared radiation as well as harmful UV rays.

Hydro Essence SPF 40 

Let’s be real: it’s not summer yet. That means moisturizing your skin is just as important as protecting it. The Hydro Essence SPF 40 allows you to do both. With moisturizing agents, antioxidants, and Hyaluronic Acid to boost the skin’s moisture retention and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, the product is a powerhouse for treating dry, parched skin. However, it’s not one note. The addition of SPF 40 protects the skin against UVA-aging rays and UVB-burning rays. 

We recommend this product for anyone, especially those with sensitive skin or recovering post-procedure.

SPF 45 Tinted Moisturizer

Even if your daily foundation includes SPF, you likely aren’t wearing enough of it on your face and neck to be effective as sunscreen. Cover up and protect yourself with the SPF 45 Tinted Moisturizer. The product blends naturally to match every skin tone, leaving skin radiant with a natural, healthy glow while also using an effective photo stabilizer to significantly enhance broad-spectrum sunscreen protection against UVA and UVB rays. 

This is the ideal daily product for those who are looking for an effective sunscreen that offers coverage. 

No matter which SPF you choose, be sure to apply and reapply daily as needed. Check out our full range of medical-grade products here.
