The Elta MD UV Daily Tinted sunscreen is a new product that provides both outstanding hydration and sun protection and is available now at A E Skin. With an SPF value of 40, it provides good sun protection for everyday use and it has both UVA and UVB protection. Unlike other sunscreens with high SPF values, it’s active ingredient is transparent zinc oxide, so it does not leave a thick white residue on the skin. The light tint makes it perfect to use as foundation so you do not need to apply as much makeup. It also contains hyaluronic acid, a humectant or hydrator, which draws water into the skin keeping the skin moisturized and preventing wrinkles. Many people use the product as a combination of moisturizer, sunscreen, and foundation all in one. The Elta MD UV Daily Tinted sunscreen glides onto the skin easily and is absorbed quickly, so makeup can be applied over it right away. It has not fragrances or parabens, and it is non-comedogenic, which means it does not cause acne breakouts. Stop by A E Skin to purchase this new and exciting product.
The Elta MD Foaming Facial Cleanser is an outstanding product for any skin care regimen. It is a gentle enzyme cleanser used to clean the face twice daily. The face should be washed twice daily, once in the morning and once at night. This allows for removal of oil, dirt, debris, makeup, and sunscreen. It allows the skin to breath better and allows for better penetration of skin care products. Clean skin is healthy skin. Studies have shown that facial cleansers should be in contact with the skin for at least 30 seconds for best results. The Elta MD Foaming Facial Cleanser foams to give you this indication. To use it properly first wet the face, then apply two pumps to the palm of your hand. Rub it between your palms and massage it gently and evenly to the entire face. Allow it to sit for at least 30 seconds until it foams. If it does not foam by this time rinse the face and repeat. Once it foams rinse off with lukewarm water. The Elta MD Foaming Facial Cleanser is safe for all skin types, oil-free, pH balanced, and gentle enough for use twice a day. Once of the ingredients is bromelain. This is an enzyme found in pineapples that decreases irritation and inflammation in the skin. It gives the product its foamy texture and gives the skin a silky and smooth feeling. For even better results, apply the Elta MD Foaming Facial Cleanser to the face and use the Clarisonic Pro with it. The Elta MD Foaming Facial Cleanser and various other products in the Elta MD line are available at A E Skin.

February is Black History Month, making it a perfect time to discuss treatments and products for those with dark skin. The most common concern for people with Fitzpatrick skin types V and VI is dark discoloration or hyperpigmentation, usually from sun exposure. Therefore the most important product to use is sunscreen daily with an SPF of at least 30. Brightening products containing hydroquinone, kojic acid, and alpha-arbutin as well as antioxidants such as vitamin C provide further improvement. Certain treatments such as IPL photofacials and certain resurfacing treatments should also be avoided in these skin types. Full field and fractional resurfacing with CO2 lasers (such as Fraxel re:pair) and YSGG (Cutera Pearl) create a lot of heat in the skin and can lead to worsening of the discoloration. However resurfacing with an erbium laser such as the Sciton Pro Fractional does not create heat and is safe for dark skin types. Such resurfacing can provide improvement for texture and color concerns. Light chemical peels work well too. Please contact us for a free consultation (818-835-1833 firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Elta MD UV Lip Balm is now available at A E Skin. It is an outstanding product for moisturizing the lips and it works particularly well for people with really dry lips or during these winter months when the weather is cold and dry. It has a smooth texture that feels great on the lips with a mild mint flavor. It provides long lasting protection and is water resistant for 80 minutes. Perhaps the best part is that it includes a transparent physical sunscreen of SPF 31 so your lips are protected from sun damage during the day. Many people forget that the lips are exposed to the sun and can be damaged over time. Sunburns can occur on the lips and are extremely painful. Also, the lips are common areas where people get skin cancer later in life and protection early on will prevent it later. The size of the product is small and the price is very reasonable, so it can fit in both your purse and budget. Stop by A E Skin to try out the new Elta MD UV Lip Balm.
