By now, you’ve all heard about the effects of the sun on your skin and the importance of protection (especially if you’ve been following our blog!). In fact, sun damage accumulates over the years and can result in uneven pigmentation, sagging skin, wrinkles, and even skin cancer.1 But it’s also very preventable. With proper precautions and using the right skin care products, you can enjoy the sun without the burn!
There are many things you can do to protect yourself and your skin from the sun. Of course, sunscreen is a must! It may take a few more minutes to slather on the SPF before you go out, but sunscreen is one of the most effective ways to help protect against the sun’s damaging rays. Make sure you look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen, which means it helps protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays━such as the Nu-Derm Sun Shield SPF 50! But this fan favorite is NOT just any other sunscreen. While many sunscreens can leave your skin feeling greasy after application, our broad-spectrum Nu-Derm Sun Shield goes on completely sheer in an elegant, matte finish that feels great on your skin. In fact, SELF Magazine voted it the best sunscreen for the face thanks to its nongreasy formula and sheer coverage━perfect for application during the sweltering heat of summer!
But that’s not all that Obagi has to offer for lifelong protection from the sun. Sure, Nu-Derm Sun Shield is one of our favorites, but we also understand that certain skin types have different skin care needs or require extra care. From oily skin to sensitive skin or conditions like rosacea, we have products that cater to your concerns. You can help keep your skin feeling fresh and, most importantly, protected all year long with our other sunscreens, including Nu-Derm Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35, Rosaclear® Skin Balancing Sun Protection SPF 30, or our Nu-Derm Physical UV Block SPF 32 with 18.5% zinc oxide.
