As your dermatologist, we’re hoping sunscreen is included. If not, we can make recommendations for sunscreens that won’t make your hands too greasy to swing a club and likely won’t burn your eyes while you’re standing over a must-make putt.
The safest and most effective sunscreens are those that physically block the sun with active ingredients such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. That’s why we LOVE the EltaMD Sun Care line of sunscreens. EltaMD sunscreensare formulated with transparent zinc oxide and are noncomedogenic, sensitivity-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free. EltaMD broad-spectrum sunscreens help prevent sunburns and if used as directed with other sun protection measures, decreases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun.
Oil-free EltaMD UV Clear is a great everyday facial sunscreen. It helps calm and protect sensitive skin types prone to breakouts, rosacea and discoloration. It contains niacinamide (vitamin B3), hyaluronic acid and lactic acid, ingredients that promote the appearance of healthy-looking skin. Very lightweight and silky, it may be worn with makeup or alone. Choose from tinted and untinted formulas for use every day. Men love this sunscreen because it goes on white, but dries clear and they cannot tell that they are wearing anything on their face. We promise! Don’t forget to apply this to your ears!
EltaMD UV Sport sunscreen is great for golfers, swimmers, skiers, runners, and other athletes – or for those who just love to be outdoors! UV Sport is water-resistant so it won’t rinse off in water or drip into your eyes and sting when you sweat. Apply this to your full body before heading out onto the golf course for a good base protection.
Throw EltaMD UV Aero into your golf bag and use this for re-application while on the golf course. This sunscreen provides sheer but sure sun protection. This continuous spray sunscreen makes it easy to protect hard-to-reach places. EltaMD UV Aero sprays on white so you can see coverage then dries clear when rubbed in.
And don’t forget EltaMD UV Lip Balm. This creamy, long-lasting moisturizing sunscreen soothes and protects dry, chapped and sun-exposed lips. It contains 5% Hydromanil™ for immediate and long-term moisturization. Powerful UV protection and a super hydrating power make EltaMD UV Lip Balm the ideal protector for all skin types and lifestyles.
Last, but certainly not least, we highly recommend for our golfers the BloqUV clothing line. It provides chemical-free sun protective clothing, which blocks 98% of the sun’s rays, in an array of colors and styles.
