Welcome to a new year, and to a new line of cosmetic skincare available at Lewisville Laser & Aesthetics! We couldn’t be more excited about the addition of Colorescience® to our product line. This fantastic brand features the very finest mineral sunscreens we’ve found. We think you’ll agree that the quality, texture, and effectiveness of these products are a sunscreen game-changer.
So why do any of us need another sunscreen option? And why a mineral sunscreen? The answer is simple— an increasing level of awareness about chemical sunscreens and the ways they interact with the body. According to U.S. News & World Report, “new U.S. Food and Drug Administration data reveals chemicals in sunscreens are absorbed into the human body at levels high enough to raise concerns.” While no physician would have patients stop using chemical sunscreens without more hard data, it makes sense to pro-actively incorporate a mineral sunscreen (sometimes called a physical sunscreen) into your daily skincare regimen.
Traditional chemical sunscreens utilize nanoparticles of organic (carbon-based) chemicals such as avobenzone, octocrylene and oxybenzone to turn the sun’s radiation into heat. That heat is then wicked away from the body. A physical sunscreen works by using inorganic particles that sit on top of the skin to reflect, block, and scatter the sun’s rays before they are absorbed. Our Colorescience® products use only clinically tested, 100% pure minerals and botanicals in their formulations.
We love the way Colorescience® combines highly effective mineral sunscreen with physician-grade skincare ingredients to make facial sunscreen an easy and beautiful part of your daily routine. Two of our favorites:
Even Up® Clinical Pigment Perfector® Sunscreen – a lightly tinted and wonderfully textured product that blurs brown spots and pigmented areas while treating the root causes of discoloration and protecting skin from sun damage.
Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Brush-On Shield SPF 50 – an easy-to-use brush application makes this all-mineral skin shield a no-brainer. It’s water-resistant, antioxidant-rich, and the tinted formula provides just a hint of sheer coverage. Plus, you can throw it in your purse for a sunscreen touch-up any time!
Ask any member of the Lewisville Laser team about trying our Colorescience® products the next time you’re in the office. We think you’ll love these products as much as we do!
