  • Love, love, love the fact that you’re able to see where you are spraying your sunscreen.  Most of us tend to gravitate to spray sunscreens when we’re out in the summer but there’s nothing worse than thinking you’ve covered yourself well enough to later find yourself with a painful burn and stripes.

  • Matte finish
  • Goes on like a lotion, without the greasy feel of traditional sunscreens
  • PABA-free, and fragrance-free formula 
  • A favorite among our male patients and perfect for everyday use.

LIPS

Sun damage leads to skin losing some of its elasticity, and unprotected lips are no exception. Also, lips naturally have thin skin, and sun damage can make the skin appear even thinner and most importantly susceptible to skin cancer.

  • Moisturize, repair, and protect with SPF 20 – all in one application.
  • Makes your lips look and feel softer

  • Great alternative for  lip stick or gloss.

ELTA MD UV LiP BALM SPF 31 broad spectrum

  • Goes on clear
  • Moisturizing
  • Water-resistant (80 minutes)
  • Men love this because it doesn't feel like they’re putting on make up and is clear, without glossy look.
