EltaMD UV Daily SPF 40
775 East Lancaster Ave
Villanova PA 19085
Serious UV protection and superior hydration join forces in this sheer facial sunscreen formulated for use every day.
To make life simple, EltaMD created its Daily sunscreen. Calling it simply a sunscreen is selling it short. EltaMD Daily is really a moisturizer that plumps and hydrates skin, a UV shield that protects from harmful rays, and an anti-aging powerhouse that helps moderate the development of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s a force to be reckoned with, and all packed into one small, air-pumped, bottle. Did we mention that it is a fan favorite of our patients from ages 25-65 because it doesn’t cause breakouts and layers under other products and makeup like a dream? No matter your skin type, EltaMD Daily will seamlessly slide right into your daily skin care regimen.
Every sunscreen you will find in the Bryn Mawr Dermatology store will have an SPF of at least 30. But what does that mean? Technically, Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is a measure of how much solar energy (UV radiation) is required to produce sunburn on protected skin (in the presence of sunscreen or UV protective clothing) relative to the amount of solar energy required to produce sunburn on unprotected skin. To translate, SPF is a measure of how well a sunscreen will protect your skin from the sun. The number before the SPF is an approximation of how much longer you can be in the sun without burning. Example: if your skin would normally burn after 10 minutes in the sun, after applying an SPF of 30 you would be protected from sunburn for 300 minutes (a factor of 30 times longer). This is a very rough estimate that depends of skin type, intensity of sunlight and amount of sunscreen used, and we never suggest being in the sun for 5 straight hours. EltaMD Daily gains its SPF of 40 due to a healthy dose of Zinc Oxide, which is a natural mineral compound that works to reflect and scatter UVA and UVB rays before they are able to penetrate and damage skin. To make it more than just a sunscreen, Elta added in Hyaluronic Acid to help your skin retain moisture and Vitamin E to fend off free radicals that cause visible signs of aging.
