Zinc oxide plays an important role in cell production and healthy skin. This powerful mineral provides broad-spectrum protection, which in turn reduces UVA-induced free-radical production in the deeper layers of the skin. Also commonly used, titanium dioxide provides highly reflective properties. It is a nonirritating, nonallergenic and noncomedogenic mineral. It, too, is a physical blocker, offering both UVA and UVB protection.

Play it safe!

Seize the opportunities summer provides—clients with more downtime, corrective ingredients with tropical aromas and the rush for swimsuit-ready skin—and be sure you are prepared to fill the need with the proper tools, treatments and plans for post-care. Talk to clients about the effects of the sun and heat, and ensure they commit to a skin-nourishing and -protecting regimen to help clients achieve healthy, radiant skin all summer long.
