With so many sunscreen options, it can be hard to decide which one you should get, right? The most important things you want in your sun protection should be right there on the front of the bottle or tube (i.e. “broad spectrum” and an SPF of 30 or more)—but as soon as you take a gander at the back or carton, it’s easy to get confused and find yourself going down a UV-lit rabbit hole.
With summer just days away, here are a few other boxes you’ll want to check when shopping for your 2017 sunscreen:
A sheer finish with no white residue
A non-greasy, fast-absorbing formula
Developed by Dr. Obagi, Zo® Skin Health Products are formulated to deliver results and provide an effective non-medical daily skincare program to help with premature aging, skin damage, and to maintain healthy skin.

Created by renowned Beverly Hills dermatologist, Zein Obagi, MD, ZO® Skin Health and ZO® Medical products feature high potency ingredients in concentrations that are powerful enough to truly make a difference in your skin.
The new ZO Medical LipRebuild Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment ($50) is no exception. It includes retinol, advanced peptides, and powerful antioxidants to slough dead skin and repair dry, cracking lips that make you look older. The LipRebuild complex is bioengineered to restore severely dry, cracked, and wrinkled lips using a clinically proven moisture recycling technology. Vitamins A and E and breakthrough plant stem cell antioxidants help defend exposed lips from further oxidative damage from the environment, i.e., the sun’s rays and pollutants. A clever advanced patented peptide complex also works to increase microcirculation to plump up your lips, improving overall shape, while restoring lips to their natural rosy hue. They also added a cooling complex that soothes parched lips.
According to Dr. Obagi, “The skin of the lips is very thin and gets constant exposure, making it more susceptible to the signs of aging. We used potent retinol in our Lip Rebuild formula to help restore severely dry, cracked, and wrinkled lips to an optimum healthy condition. The addition of powerful antioxidants also helps to defend lips from continued exposure to the environment and UV radiation.”
ZO® Medical LipRebuild can be used under lipstick or gloss, or on its own for added protection and extra comfort. Available exclusively from ZO Medical physicians in-office and through the ZO online physician stores at zoskinhealth.com.
