Jul 1, 2024

Summer is here, and it’s the perfect time to talk about some of the favorite sunscreens at The Look Aesthetics. As the sunny days roll in, protecting your skin from harmful UV rays becomes crucial. Here at The Look, we have a few standout products that are highly recommended for all patients.

SkinMedica Total Defense and Repair — SPF 34

The first sunscreen to highlight is the SkinMedica Total Defense and Repair. This product is exceptional for several reasons:

  • Comprehensive Skin Protection: This SPF option protects the skin from sun damage and prevents signs of aging due to chronic exposure to UVA, UVB, and infrared rays.
  • Advanced Antioxidants: Includes a blend of antioxidants that enhance the skin’s ability to prevent damage from free radicals and environmental stressors.
  • Reduces Signs of Aging: Helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while defending against future damage.
  • Light Tint: Provides a subtle tint that enhances your natural skin tone, making it a great option for daily wear.
  • Infrared Protection: Beneficial for those suffering from heat-induced melasma or any pigmentation that worsens with sun exposure. For those dealing with pigmentation issues, this sunscreen is an essential part of your skincare regimen.
