Spring has sprung and summer is on the way. The warmer weather is inviting more outdoor activity which means it’s more important than ever to apply sunscreen.

While sunscreens come in an array of sun protection factor numbers and consistency for different skin care types, they are now adding color to the ingredients. Skin Care Heaven, a skin research center and e-shopping hub based in Encinitas, has picked their favorite tinted sunscreens for this summer.

“Sunscreen has come a long way being that most are featherweight, oil-free and colorless,” said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson. “But they’ve come even farther because while they deliver solar protection some offer a tinted color to give us a sun-kissed look.”

This combination is growing really popular, said the spokesperson. While this summer sunscreen trend makes headway, Skin Care Heaven picked a couple tinted sunscreens which have received excellent feedback.

On the list is Dermaquest Skin Therapy ZinClear SPF 30 in Tan. “This Dermaquest product offers excellent coverage for various types of skin needs,” she said. “A physical and broad spectrum sunscreen, zinc oxide is part of its top ingredients which makes it ideal for sensitive skin.”

While offering a good solar defense, it also has antioxidants to help fight free-radicals which can spur premature aging.

Next on the list is EltaMD Skincare UV Physical SPF 41 Tinted Sunscreen.

“This chemical-free sunscreen offers an impressive SPF protection and is ideal for sensitive skin,” said the spokesperson.

Its natural mineral ingredients include zinc oxide and titanium oxide.

Like other sunscreens on the market, this tinted gem is water resistant, paraben-free and oil-free; and, it glides on silky smooth.

“These tinted sunscreens are so versatile that they can be applied by itself or underneath makeup,” she said. “The best part of all is that they will give you a healthy looking glow and keep your skin safe.”

Sunscreen skin saving tips

Posted for Anti AgingBeautyparaben free skin careSkin CareSun TanningSunscreenUncategorized On March 27, 2013

The weather is warming up which means we all need to be more mindful of daily sunscreen. Picking the right sunscreen is important to protect your skin from cancer and premature aging, but what’s even more important is what types of products are out there.

And Skin Care Heaven has the information that you need in making the right choices.

Sunscreen has come a long way. They are now featherweight, non-greasy, and come in fragrance and paraben-free. Also, some of these sunscreen manufacturers offer an anti-aging and a skin recovery enhancement in its ingredients.

A full top inventory list can be found here.

A couple of these picks include Nia 24 Sun Damage Protection SPF 30 and Dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 30 .

Remember, broad spectrum formulas (UVA and UVB protection) are important as well as these other ingredient options:

• Avobenzone
• Ecamsule
• Oxybenzone
• Sulisobenzone
• Titanium dioxide
• Zinc oxide

There is a flurry of skin safety tips when applying sunscreen. The most valuable is how sunscreen should be applied 15 to 30 minutes before going outside. And don’t be frugal with it – reports show we do not apply enough to protect our bodies.

Sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours. And after a swim or perspiring, do reapply immediately.

And before diving into some outdoor playtime, do check the product expiration date to ensure optimum skin protection.

Despite how powerful a product may be it is still always wise to find shade to give skin a break, wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses for extra anti-aging care.
