Does EltaMD work?

The UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 45 is a chemical and mineral sunscreen containing 7.5% octinoxate and 9% zinc oxide and retails for $36. The lightweight moisturizing SPF is also formulated with hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, vitamin E and lactic acid. All amazing buzzworthy skin care ingredients that have been proven to improve skin texture, hydration and overall appearance. The hyaluronic acid keeps the skin barrier hydrated, the niacinamide acts as an anti-inflammatory to calm down any acne breakouts, the vitamin E contains antioxidant properties to fight off any free radicals and the lactic acid helps gently exfoliate the skin and promote a quicker skin cell turnover to reduce signs of acne pigmentation. This sunscreen is especially great for acne prone beauties because it helps protect against UVA and UVB rays, targets inflammation from acne and improves skin complexion over time. The oil free, paraben free and noncomedogenic, lightweight texture quickly absorbs into the skin without leaving a thick white cast that most mineral sunscreens can do.

This is great news for acne skin types. It won’t clog up your pores which can eventually lead to acne and it will help protect your skin barrier while it heals from any current acne breakouts. My acne prone complexion could definitely use all the help it can get! Researchers and doctors agree that protecting your skin daily with sunscreen is the best defense against aging, reducing post acne inflammation and reducing acne scarring.
