We carry the Elta MD skincare line in our office for purchase. This is a popular sunscreen line among dermatologists due to its superior protection, wide array of options, and cosmetic elegance.
EltaMD UV Sport Broad-Spectrum SPF 50
This body sunscreen is perfect for all types of activities, whether that is strolling around the city, sitting by the pool, or going on a long run outside. It is mineral-based, but does not leave a white cast. It is great for those with an active lifestyle as it is water-resistant and does not drip into your eyes if sweating.
EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46
This clear facial sunscreen is good for all skin types, but is specially formulated for those with acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin. It is a great daily facial SPF that can easily be layered under makeup. It also contains niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and lactic acid to enhance the look of your skin.
EltaMD UV Elements Broad-Spectrum SPF 44
This tinted facial sunscreen is an all-mineral formulation designed for the most sensitive skin. It is very subtly tinted to avoid the appearance of having a white “cast” on the skin. It also contains hyaluronic acid and vitamin C to smooth and protect the skin. In addition, it is great for those with melasma as it also protects against visible light, which has been shown to contribute to melasma.
Our goal here at The Dermatology of Institute of Boston is protect the health of our patients and staff. To continue caring for our patients during these uncertain times, while strictly adhering to the guidelines set by the CDC, we will be only offering virtual consultations. For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.
