Sunscreens That Dermatologists Trust



Most dermatologists recommend that patients apply a sunscreen every day to protect their skin from the sun and that they apply 1 ounce of sunscreen to all exposed areas once every two hours during prolonged sun exposure. In order to encourage patients to use sunscreen regularly, many dermatologists sell sunscreens in their offices or recommend certain brands by name.

The dermatologist sun care products in this assortment are the same ones that many medical professionals prefer. You can use the menu at the left to find the brand that your doctor recommends or browse the entire product selection to explore all of the options that are available.

Selecting the Right SPF Level



The SPF or Sun Protection Factor of a sunscreen lets you know how much of the ultraviolet B radiation from the sun a product either reflects away from the skin or absorbs before it reaches the tissue. Most dermatologists advise patients to use sunscreens with an SPF level of at least 15 and to choose products with broad-spectrum protection against UVA as well as UVB.

Higher SPF products that protect the skin from a greater percentage of UVB rays may be necessary for certain individuals. You can ask your doctor for a recommendation regarding which SPF level is right for you if you're uncertain which to choose.

Choosing Your Ideal Protection



After you have focused on the sunscreens that offer the perfect amount of SPF protection for your face or body, you can compare the other features of the formulas to choose the one that's best for you. Some products function only as sunscreens, while others offer added benefits. You can find sunscreens that double as hydrating moisturizers, primers that ready the complexion for cosmetics and treatments for addressing imperfections.
