Mostly As – Sounds like your skin is thirsty! And we all know dry skin can lead to a faster aging process. We have the perfect sunscreen for you – one with an anti-aging built in moisturizer: SkinMedica’s TNS Ultimate Daily with SPF 20. Use this every morning to hydrate, prevent, and protect!
Mostly Bs – The verdict is in: you have oily skin. I know it’s hard to imagine applying any kind of product to oily skin, but that’s why easy 100% mineral tinted sunscreen powder is for you. Try our: Colorescience Sunforgettables SPF 30 or 50 for almost any skin tone.
Mostly Cs – Sounds like you have skin that is pretty adaptable to climates, products, and anything new you want to try. For normal/combination skin it’s still important to not just get fashion products, but action products. Make sure your sunscreen is really working to protect against the sun’s damaging & aging rays. We love to recommend: SkinMedica Environmental Defense SPF 30 or 50 and its ultra sheer physical sunscreen provides broad-spectrum defense against UVA/UVB rays.
Mostly Ds – You, my friend, have sensitive skin… but you probably already knew that! We don’t want to put anything irritating on your skin either. Sensitive skin can mean a number of things such as being prone to acne or rosacea, and that’s why for most of our sensitive skin patients we often recommend: LaRoche-Posay’s Anthelios SPF 60. Its feathery-light feel has a sheer finish, effective UVA/UVB protection with Cell-Ox Sheild, and not to mention it’s also water-resistant and non-comedogenic.
