Key factors of Your Needed Winter Skin Regimen with EltaMD® Skin Care

By Amy Lignor

The cold winds and freezing temperatures of winter have arrived in many parts of the U.S. EltaMD® wants to help you protect your skin from seasonal dryness, cracking and itch aggravated by winter conditions.

EltaMD® is dedicated to helping people establish a practical and effective skin care regimen using their unique and innovative products. EltaMD® dermatologist-recommended skin care product line has specialized formulas for every skin type. For enthusiasts of the winter lifestyle, EltaMD® is a great resource to learn more when it comes to your skin care needs.

Winter sun, frigid temperatures, whipping winds, and even dry indoor heating can actually strip your skin of moisture and can leave your face and hands feeling tight, dry, and irritated.

Keeping your skin healthy and hydrated all day long in the winter months is recommended. Start every morning with an effective facial moisturizer. The EltaMD® Barrier Renewal Complex helps maintain soft and supple skin in the colder months while promoting a more youthful appearance all year round. It restores the vibrant glow of youth by improving the tone and texture of your skin. With five unique ceramides that replenish moisture loss and increase water retention, lines and wrinkles are visibly softened. 

A fact that is often forgotten in the winter is the damage the sun can cause to your skin.   Up to 80% of the sun’s rays can penetrate light clouds, snow, and even fog. Over time, that exposure can lead to moles, wrinkles, and skin cancers. So even on those cloudy or overcast days, using sunscreen to protect your skin helps prevent the signs of early aging and skin cancer, says the American Cancer Society.

EltaMD® offers a line of superior sun protection formulas designed for year-round use by all skin types and ages. Specially formulated with transparent zinc oxide, EltaMD® sunscreens provide long-lasting UVA and UVB protection with broad-spectrum SPF ratings from 30 to 50. Highly recommended by dermatologists and plastic surgeons, EltaMD® is the best-selling physician-dispensed sunscreen in the U.S., according to an assessment by Kline & Company*.

Lip protection during winter pursuits is another issue to consider. In winter, whether skiing or simply taking care of outdoor chores, lips can easily chap. Wearing lip balm is essential when it comes to good winter skin care. EltaMD® UV Lip Balm Broad-Spectrum SPF 31 is perfect for protecting and soothing dry, chapped lips. Formulated with transparent zinc oxide and nourishing antioxidants, it combats the harmful effects of damaging UVA and UVB rays. Olive oil and vitamin E team up to condition and replenish moisture, making your lips silky-soft while providing long-lasting comfort

Effective facial cleansing is especially important during the winter when icy road debris and other environmental contaminants are prevalent. The EltaMD® Foaming Facial Cleanser is an oil-free, pH-balanced formula that offers gentle cleansing without irritating or drying your skin. This gentle face wash contains bromelain and apple amino acids that act to remove makeup, excess oil, and impurities. Your skin’s natural moisture is retained, leaving your skin clean, smooth and soft.

If dealing with oily or acne-prone skin, EltaMD® AM Therapy Facial Moisturizer will allow you adequate hydration without clogging pores or worsening acne. Garnering rave reviews from consumers and physicians alike, this oil-free moisturizer applies silky smooth and is non-greasy. Containing the perfect ingredients, like hyaluronic acid to help the skin retain essential moisture and enhance suppleness, it is fragrance-free and noncomedogenic—making it suitable for oily or combination skin types. Because it also contains vitamin B-3, it is the perfect facial moisturizer for those with rosacea. Its anti-inflammatory properties minimize the appearance of redness.

As you head into this winter season, whether skiing on the slopes or huddled-up by a fire, make sure to protect your skin with the full line of EltaMD® products as you pursue your fun in winter’s wonderland.

Have Your “Fun in the Sun!”

 

Have Your “Fun in the Sun!”

But play it safe with broad-spectrum sunscreen

 

 

Summer is in full swing, and for most people that means spending extended time in the bright sunshine.

 

“Everyone knows the sun is essential to good health and contributes to a sense of well-being,” EltaMD Skin Care Brand Manager Carol Bocell states. “But when you’re having fun, it’s easy to forget that unprotected sun exposure can cause premature skin aging and skin cancer.”

People of all skin tones can get skin cancer,” she went on to say. “But some groups may be at a higher risk. Ms. Bocell pointed to a study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention in 2014. The study indicates the increased risk for Caucasian women who suffer five (or more) blistering sunburns between the ages of 15 and 20; they have an 80% higher chance of contracting melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer.

 

In addition, UVA rays can age skin cells and damage DNA. These rays are linked to long-term skin damage, such as wrinkles, but they are also thought to play a role in some skin cancers, according to the American Cancer Society.

 

The daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen decreases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by exposure to the sun when used with other sun protection measures, advises the Federal Drug Administration. 

 

According to Ms. Bocell, EltaMD broad-spectrum sunscreens are widely recommended by dermatologists and other physicians. “Physicians who dispense EltaMD sunscreens trust these cosmetically elegant, zinc-based formulas to protect skin against UVA and UVB rays,” she said. 

 

“With EltaMD transparent zinc-based sunscreens, unlike a majority of other sunscreen products out there on the market, there’s no white ‘blob’ visible on the nose and wearers don’t have to go through the day smelling like fruity cocktails.” EltaMD sunscreens are fragrance-free, sensitivity-free, paraben-free and non-comedogenic.

 

Whether you’re spending a week at the beach or just a few minutes in your own backyard, lather on the EltaMD sunscreen. “Apply two tablespoons of a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher sunscreen to the exposed areas of the face and body,” she states. “Be sure to reapply according to directions and follow the sun-safety tips provided on the sunscreen packaging.”

Today’s Consumer Reports review rating EltaMD®

 

Statement from EltaMD, Inc., Chief Operating Officer Ede Payne
regarding Consumer Reports 2016 sunscreen study
(CARROLLTON, TEXAS – May 17, 2016) Today’s Consumer Reports review rating EltaMD®
UV Aero is incorrect and misleading.
UV-Aero-SCF-HRn-Sunscreen-Skin Cancer-Sun Tanning-Beach-Outdoors-Consumer Report has acknowledged to us in the past that in purporting to report the SPF values
of sunscreens, including EltaMD UV Aero, it does not use the SPF validation testing protocol
mandated by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). FDA regulations provide
that SPF values on sunscreen labels must be derived using the FDA-mandated testing
protocol. No other testing method is approved by the FDA.
Reliable and expert organizations familiar with the FDA-mandated protocol, such as The Skin
Cancer Foundation and the American Melanoma Foundation, as well as hundreds of practicing
physicians, regularly recommend EltaMD UV Aero. They are confident doing so because they
know that the SPF values on EltaMD are derived from testing by independent, FDA-registered
laboratories with long experience testing sunscreen products in strict conformity with the FDA mandated
protocol. Indeed, test reports based on the FDA protocol and validating the SPF 45
value of EltaMD UV Aero are available on EltaMD’s website.
Insofar as the magazine’s rating of EltaMD UV Aero does not appear to be based on the FDA mandated
testing protocol, we believe it to be unfounded and misleading. Sadly, misleading
reports like the one published today could discourage consumers from choosing reliable
sunscreen products whose SPF values have been derived through testing conducted in strict
conformity with the applicable FDA regulations, such as EltaMD UV Aero.
