We sat down with some of our Bend Dermatology Providers to get the inside scoop from them on some of their favorite skin care products so you can take care of your own skin like an expert does. Here are some skin care products you might want to check out:
Various Skin Care Products
EltaMD has various sunscreen products that we recommend to patients because protecting your skin from the sun is critical. We like this line because EltaMD broad-spectrum sunscreens are formulated with transparent zinc oxide.
These products are also noncomedogenic (which means they are specially formulated so as not to cause blocked pores), sensitivity-free, fragrance-free, and paraben-free.
Zinc sunscreen blocks the widest spectrum of UVA and UVB rays, protecting skin against burning and the premature appearance of aging and the risk of skin cancer. Zinc is generally considered safe for even the most sensitive skin types.
Additionally, the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends many of these EltaMD sunscreen products as an effective broad-spectrum sunscreen.
Some of the different options in EltaMD’s sunscreen line include:
Elta UV Daily Broad Spectrum SPF 40
Elta UV Daily Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Tinted
Elta UV Clear Broad Spectrum 46
Elta UV Sport SPF 50
Elta UV Physical SPF 41 Tinted
Elta UV Aero Broad Spectrum SPF 45
Different types of sunscreen may be better depending on your lifestyle or skin concerns. You can talk to a Provider at Bend Dermatology for recommendations for your needs. They also make a lip balm sunscreen specifically to protect your lips — EltaMD UV Lip Balm 31.
There are various cleansers that help with exfoliating, acne, and general cleansing. You may want to use different cleansers if you have sensitive skin as well. For instance, Epionce Gentle Foaming Cleanser effectively removes dirt, oil, and other surface impurities like makeup without leaving the skin feeling dry or stripped of its natural protective oils. It’s also set at optimal pH, so it’s safe for daily use by all skin types.
Post-Treatment Skin Care
You may want specific skin care products after a cosmetic treatment, such as microneedling, to help enhance absorption into the skin. Your Provider will help you figure out the best products for your skin based on the procedure you had.
You can visit one of the Bend Dermatology locations to talk with a Provider about creating a customized skin care regimen based on your needs and goals and even pick up your skin care products while you’re there.
