Family Practice Skin Care Offers Safe Sunscreen

When deciding on the right sunscreen, it is crucial to read the label and be properly informed to fully understand the different varieties of sunscreen ingredients. It is not a secret that chemical sunscreens cause skin irritations, healthy hazards and allergies in many people.

Chemical-free sunscreens should only contain zinc oxide (ZnO) and/or titanium oxide (TiO2), and should be free of oxybenzone, avobenzone, octocrylene, homosalate, octinoxate  and octisalate, which are all irritating to the skin and cause unnecessary harm to both the human body and our environment.

It is also important to note that “water resistant” does not mean waterproof. No sunscreens are waterproof or sweatproof. The bottle should specify whether it will last 40 or 60 minutes while swimming or sweating.

Make sure that the sunscreen you choose has a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher, and that you re-apply it every hour.

Dr. Anamaria Newport of The Family Skin Care Center has created a sunscreen that safely promote skin photoprotection and active rejuvenation. The main and only active ingredient in Newport’s formula is created with a pure zinc oxide mineral barrier and is complimented with natural green tea. The formula is further enhanced with the powerful antioxidant of Resveratrol, which is naturally found in the skin of red grapes. Unlike other zinc oxide-based products, their organic, scentless, non-greasy formula goes on clear with a weightless, residue-free finish, all in a convenient spray bottle.

All patients receive a complimentary medical consultation toward cosmetics and laser devices.
