Best Sunscreens For The Family

Summer is right around the corner, so now is the perfect time for you to find the right sunscreen and use it! What better way to prepare for spring break than by refreshing your sunscreen stash? Learn why this is the most important step in your skincare routine. Our provider Anna, CNP shares her top recommendations for the best sunscreens for the whole family. If you are not already wearing your sunscreen daily, this is your sign to start! 


When it comes to finding the perfect sunscreen for you or your family, there are three things to look out for:


When looking for the right sunscreen for you, coverage is extremely important: look for ingredients including Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide to ensure you are purchasing a broad-spectrum sunscreen. These two ingredients are a great choice in your sunscreens as they cover both UVA & UVB Rays. 


Our providers always recommend a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and rates the amount of solar exposure that you will be protected from. For example: an SPF 100 is going to block 99% of UVB rays, while an SPF 30 is going to block 97% of UVB rays. So while SPF 100 is going to give you greater protection, it is only a 3% increase so it may not be worth the added cost. 

Daily Use

Using a broad spectrum sunscreen daily will help ensure consistent protection from UV damage. In order to get into the habit of wearing your sunscreen daily, it’s helpful for you to find one that you enjoy wearing. We carry a wide variety of sunscreens here at our office: such as lightweight or moisturizing, tinted and non-tinted, along with specialty formulations such as powders.

Lastly make sure you purchase a sunscreen you will wear, there are a variety of sunscreen options based on your skin type, as well as tinted and untinted options.
