Make a Broad Stroke this Summer

We all know that the sun is our #1 Enemy; by making us age faster and causing skin cancer. Sadly, even knowing the dangers of the sun, there is a lack of knowledge about how to properly protect yourself!  When choosing a sunscreen, make sure it protects against all UV rays, as most sunscreens on the market focuses solely on UVB.

UVB is a shortwave ultraviolet light that does not penetrate the skin but burns the top layer. UVA is a more extended wave that penetrates deep into the skin and is responsible for faster aging and skin damage.  I have always recognized the importance of protective sunscreens and have developed suncare that works against both, UVB and UVA. Sunscreens that cover both UVB (Burning) and UVA (Aging) are called Broad Spectrum Sunscreens.

My skincare line, Fiona Wright MD Skincare, has formulated 3 different broad-spectrum sunscreens.

Our MATTE FINISH OIL and CHEMICAL FREE SPF 30 is a great sunscreen that can be reapplied throughout the day. This moisturizing formula of 17% Micronized Zinc provides the highest level of broad-spectrum UVA/ UVB protection. Chemical and oil-free, it never feels heavy or oily, and gives a long-lasting, oil-free matte finish- perfect to apply over makeup.

Our SUN SHIELD SPF 30 is the best choice for sensitive skin, and it is safe for children because it is an entirely organic product!  This Broad Spectrum sunscreen is also tinted with mica to give your skin the perfect glow.

Our ANTI-PHOTOAGING GREEN TEA FORTIFIED SPF 50  has the perfect tint – so makeup isn’t needed! Fortified with Green Tea, it is designed to heal damaged skin and protects with the additional infusion of powerful antioxidants.

In addition to the Fiona Wright M.D. Sunscreens, we offer ELTA M.D. SUNSCREENS, one of the few well known medical grade sunscreens which are also Broad Spectrum. Find the right Broad Spectrum Sunscreen for you today, at our website RxBeautyBar.com.
