Kallgren Dermatology Clinic carries the best skin products to aid you in your care for your skin. Sunscreens can be divided into two categories: barrier sunscreen and chemical sunscreens. Chemical sunscreens interact with your skin and absorb some of the sun’s harmful rays. Barrier sunscreens act as a reflector to the rays and they in effect bounce off your skin with no chemical interaction at the skin level. EltaMD sunscreens are the barrier type of sunscreen containing zinc oxide and as such they are broad spectrum sunscreens, protecting against both UVA and UVB rays thus providing full providing full protection. EltaMD sunscreens come in several strengths with a particular formula for the face, and one containing tint to give your skin a healthy sun-kissed look while protecting against the sun’s damaging radiation. EltaMD knows that your lips are also in need of protection and so offers a UV Lip Balm SPF 30.
If you forget to apply your sunscreen and get a sunburn, you can apply EltaMD Moisturizer. This specially formulated moisturizer soothes red and flaky skin. It melts on contact and retains 90% of the skin’s moisture for at least 12 hours. That will feel so good on a sunburn! This moisturizer can also be used to soothe eczema, atopic dermatitis, and after procedures that leave the skin red and irritated as they heal. IF you have skin irritations associated with diabetes, renal disease or medications such as tretinoin you can use this moisturizer too, it will make your skin feel moist and soothes.
