Good Day, Sunshine!

Though we don’t like to dwell on the negative here at SkinCareLab, the issue of using sunscreen is so vital we want to get your attention with a few important facts:

  • Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is a proven human carcinogen.
  • 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer.
  • More people develop skin cancer because of tanning than develop lung cancer because of smoking.
  • 90% of non-melanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to UV radiation from the sun.
So, the question is not whether to wear sunscreen, but which kind is right for you?

These are the only sunscreens that protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Opt for a minimum of SPF 15 (and up to SPF 50+) and make sure to reapply to all exposed skin every hour, using a golfball-size dollop for full coverage.

Physical blockers like titanium oxide and zinc oxide deflect harmful UV rays. Chemical sunscreens -including mexoryl, tinosorb, avobenzone (Parsol 1789), octinoxate, and oxybenzone— absorb and break down UV components. SkinCareLab’s Transparent Sun Shield contains a sheer, chemical-free layer of micronized zinc oxide plus a chemical barrier for the best of both worlds.

Don’t rely solely on the SPF in your foundation. Instead, choose SkinCareLab’s Tinted Sun Protector SPF 45 or the new Anthelios
 SPF 50
 Smoothing Optical Blur 
Unifying, which can be used as both makeup and sunscreen. Or choose an ultra sheer, lightweight formulation like SkinCareLab’s Sun Protector Fluid SPF 55 and apply under your makeup.
