Hello, my fellow sun worshippers! As a physician, I'm often asked what type of sunscreen is best to wear on a daily basis. And I can tell you, with so many options out there, it can be quite overwhelming. But fear not! Today, we're going to talk about three types of sunscreens that are all the rage: the Rosegold SPF, the Clear Moisturizing SPF, and the Clear Matte SPF 50.
Rosegold SPF 50
First up, let's talk about my personal favorite: the Rosegold Matte Tinted SPF 50. This is not your normal sunscreen. Now, I know what you're thinking. "Rosegold? Isn't that just a color?" Well, my friends, not in the world of sunscreen! This luxurious tinted sunscreen formula is not only Instagram-worthy, but it also provides excellent sun protection. The Rosegold Tint is perfect for those of us who want a little extra glow, and it's perfect for all skin types.
Clear Moisturizing SPF 50
Next, we have the Clear Moisturizing SPF 50. This sunscreen is perfect for those of us who have dry skin or sensitive skin and want to keep it hydrated all day long. The formula is lightweight and non-greasy, so it won't leave your skin feeling oily or sticky. And the best part? It's perfect for wearing under makeup. So, if you're a beauty lover like me, you'll love how this sunscreen provides all-day hydration and sun protection without interfering with your makeup routine.
Clear Matte SPF 50
Last but not least, we have the Clear Matte SPF 50. This sunscreen is perfect for those of us who want a matte finish and don't want to look like we just applied sunscreen. It's also great for oily skin or acne-prone skin types. The formula is oil-free and non-comedogenic, which means it won't clog your pores. And despite its matte finish, it's still lightweight and easy to apply. So, if you're looking for a sunscreen that won't leave you looking shiny, this one is definitely worth a try.
Choosing the Right Sunscreen
Now, you may be wondering, "Which one should I choose?" Well, it all comes down to personal preference and your skin type. If you have dry skin, the Clear Moisturizing SPF is a great choice. If you want a little extra glow, go for the Rose Gold SPF. And if you have oily or acne prone skin, the Clear Matte SPF 50 is perfect for you.
All of our sunscreens contain the mineral sunscreen ingredient called zinc oxide. Zinc oxide offers UV protection from UVA and UVB rays as well as blue light/visible light protection. They also contain a chemical sunscreen ingredient called octinoxate to further protect your skin against UV radiation from sun exposure. Our Rosegold Tinted SPF 50 is the only one that contains iron oxides which offer additional protection against blue light/visible light.
Consistency Matters Most
But, let's be real here. The most important thing is not tinted vs untinted sunscreen. The most important thing is that you wear a broad spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen every day. Sun exposure plays a big role in how the face ages. Sun damage can lead to premature aging, sunburns, and even skin cancer. So, make sure to apply sunscreen to all exposed areas of your body every day, and reapply every 2 hours if you're out in the sun, no matter your skin tone.
The best practice is to choose a sunscreen that you will be likely to wear. If that means choosing a clear sunscreen because you’re more likely to protect your neck, chest, and ears, then do that. If that means choosing the Rosegold tinted sunscreen so that you don't skip SPF entirely, then do what works for you. Or maybe you’ll be more likely to wear your SPF 50 if you have more than one option, so you get untinted and tinted sunscreen! Choose the sunscreen you can get the most coverage from and that you’ll wear the most consistently.
Sunscreen application also matters. In order to get the best efficacy out of your sunscreen, don’t mix it with foundation or moisturizer. Mixing SPF with other products can create microscopic holes in the UV protection. To avoid this, apply moisturizer first. After it dries, apply sunscreen. Then, finally, makeup. To reduce the number of products you’re using, choose a sunscreen that does both. Choose the Clear Moisturizing SPF 50 for a clear tinted moisturizer and SPF in one. Choose the Rosegold Tinted SPF 50 for a tinted moisturizer and sunscreen all-in-one.
In conclusion, these three sunscreens all have their own unique benefits. Whether you want a little extra glow, all-day hydration, or a matte finish, Rejuvenation MD Aesthetics & Vein Center has a sunscreen for you. So, go forth and protect your skin from those harmful UV rays!
