Dr. Emery Recommends
Talia Emery, MD
The #1 thing you can do to protect your skin from aging is to shield it from the sun's harmful UV rays. EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with transparent zinc oxide and are noncomedogenic (won't clog pores), sensitivity-free, fragrance-free, and paraben-free. As the days grow longer and the UV rays get stronger, this is the perfect time to stock up on protection for you and your family. From now until the end of June, get 50% off one with the purchase of another of equal or greater value. We're looking forward to helping you do the right thing for your skin!
Elta MD is a lightweight, silky formulation offering protection against UVA and UVB damage. It calms and soothes sensitivity due to delicate or acne-prone skin conditions. The oil-free formula sets to a residue-free finish that's perfect for wear alone or under makeup. After application, the skin is comfortable, smooth and protected against damage.
Instructions: Apply liberally to face, neck and backs of hands, 30 minutes before exposure to the sun. Reapply every 2-3 hours to maintain protection.
Dr. Emery's take: "As many of you have heard me say, good skin care starts with good sun protection. If you need a core daily sunscreen, you won't go wrong with this one. It is the perfect sunscreen for rosacea- or acne-prone skin. The oil-free formula is super lightweight (you'll wonder if it's even there) and, as its name implies, it sets to a residue-free finish that's perfect for wear alone or under makeup. After application, the skin is comfortable, smooth and protected against damage."
Precautions: Topical use only. Apply to test area and wait 24 hours. If irritation develops, discontinue.
