Sunscreen is an essential component of anyone’s skin care routine, particularly those who have recently had a cosmetic procedure. The skin of an incision or scar is especially delicate following a treatment, and is more sensitive to the harmful effects of sun exposure. Without taking precautionary measures and using an effective sunscreen, a scare may darken significantly and become more noticeable. Yet even those who have not recently undergone a cosmetic procedure must be vigilant about protecting their skin from the sun. Sun exposure can not only cause burns, it can eventually lead to skin cancer or signs of early aging.

This medical grade sunscreen is formulated with transparent zinc oxide and is noncomedogenic, sensitivity-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free.
