After-Treatment Sun Protection
It may be tempting to skip sunscreen after a skin treatment when you're worried about heightened skin sensitivity, but it's at this time that you need even more protection than usual. Luckily, Elta MD offers UV Daily. Although it's totally appropriate for everyday use, it's also ideal for skin that's just been through microdermabrasion, chemical or glycolic peels, laser and IPL treatments.
This very light but very potent SPF 40 sunscreen uses micronized zinc oxide to keep out sun damage. The paraben-free formula keeps UVA and UVB rays at bay while it gently moisturizes even the most sensitive skin-whether that's how it is usually or because of a procedure-and it has a makeup-friendly formula that let's you use it every morning before your beauty routine.
