Just because summer is winding down, that’s no reason to forget about protecting your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Remember, the sun’s rays are just as damaging on a cloudy day in December as they are on a sunny day in August.
That’s why we at Beautyinthebag are so glad to learn of a product like MD Solar Sciences’ Mineral Screen Tinted Gel SPF 30+ ($24). Developed by dermatologist oncologist Dr. Robert J. Friedman to adequately protect your skin, the gel is specially formulated to apply effortlessly and wear like a prestige beauty product.
“If sunscreen went on comfortably, virtually undetectably, and didn’t interfere with moisturizer, makeup or clothing, wouldn’t you wear it every day?” asks Dr. Friedman.
Well, hopefully the answer is yes, now that we’ve discovered Mineral Screen Tinted Gel SPF 30, which bears the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation. The lightweight gel delivers a hint of healthy tint to face and neck along with powerful broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It’s formulated to wear seamlessly under moisturizer and foundation, without piling or breaking down, keeping skin matte, crisp and shine-free. Worn every day, sunscreen not only helps prevent skin cancer from developing, but helps fight the appearance of photo-aging such as freckles, melasma, dull complexion and loss of elasticity.
Plus, since it’s packaged in a 1.23 oz. tube, Mineral Screen Tinted Gel SPF 30+ is perfectly suited for most carry-ons. It’s advisable to wear sunscreen even on a plane, because at high altitudes the sun’s rays are unfiltered and ultimately stronger.
Mineral Screen Tinted Gel SPF 30+ is available now, sold at physician offices and online at www.mdsolarsciences.com. It is also available at select pharmacies and retailers in NYC and the Hamptons, including Ricky’s, Clyde’s, South Thrifty, Whites and Montauk Yacht Club.
