Why is medical grade SPF so important??

Hi Guys!

I get this question all the time, So today I thought I would go over why medical grade is the best way to go. Sunscreen is so important and is the most ANTI-AGING product you can buy. It is critical to use EVERY DAY. Even if you aren't hanging out in the sun you are still exposed to UVA/UVB rays.

Medical grade SPF has a lot cleaner ingredient list as well as protecting UVA/UVB rays without extra ingredients that aren't necessary. There are different sunscreens for all skin types, SPF isn't one size fits all. It is very important to understand what is in your products. I am here to help you find the best one for you. You want your sunscreen to only have Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide nothing else besides those ingredients is needed.

My favorite brand is Alastin hydratint SPF and Glowbiotics tinted SPF they are both carried at the spa here. If you have acne prone skin you want to be extra cautious of the sunscreen you use as certain ones can make it worse.

Have a beautiful day and don't forget your SPF!
