May Is Skin Cancer Awareness Month: Remember Your Sunscreen
May is Skin Cancer Awraeness Month and we all need to get serious about wearing sunscreen daily. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends that EVERYONE wear sunscreen daily for the safety of their skin. We all are aware that sunscreen minimizes the penetration of damaging, cancer causing UV rays into the skin, but did you know it can also minimize photoaging and wrinkling of the skin leading to a healthier more youthful appearance? At Carmel Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeons we offer a variety of sunscreens including a line of sunscreens from our clinical skincare line, ZO, to suit your every need.
The “ZO difference” in sunscreens. Unlike many drugstore and over-the-counter sunscreens, ZO sunscreens offer:
- UVA, UVB and blue light protection . (Did you know the light that comes off your iphone, ipad, and laptop is damaging to the skin?!)
- Antioxidants to fight off free radicals to help prevent premature aging
- Lipids, hydrators and anti-inflammatories
- Are endorsed by the Skin Cancer Foundation
Sunscreen + Primer SPF 30: Our most popular sunscreens. A silky tinted all-mineral sunscreen and makeup primer in-one. Like all ZO sunscreens, it offers UVA, UVB and blue light protection with antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E to fight off free radical damage. It blurs out fine lines and gives you a gorgeous air-brushed finish.
Smart Tone SPF 50: Self-adjusting tinted moisturizer with “smart” color beads that burst as you rub it in and adjust to most skin tones. Gives a gorgeous, bronzed “J Lo glow.” Perfect whenever you want to wear minimal makeup.
Daily Sheer SPF 50: Non-greasy, super light sunscreen with a fluid-lotion texture and matte finish. Ideal for people who dislike most sunscreens. This is also ZO’s water and sweat-resistant sunscreen! It’s a great pick if you have oily skin, enjoy outdoor exercise, are amping up to enjoy boat time this summer.
