Don't Forget the Sunscreen!

Warmer weather is here and now is the time to protect your skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays. Summer temperatures mean showing more skin, and a good sunscreen is vital in maintaining beautiful and healthy skin. Sunscreens are designed to either absorb or reflect both types of the sun's ultra violet rays. UVA rays cause reddening and sunburn while the UVB rays breakdown collagen.
We carry EltaMD sunscreen, an excellent sunscreen that is paraben-free, which is perfect for acne-prone and sensitive skin and provides both UVA and UVB protection.
