Our favorite sunscreens!
- Posted on: Jun 25 2015
I love this facial sunscreen! It is by far my favorite for many reasons. This sunscreen does not contain any chemical sun blocks. It contains 18.6% Zinc Oxide, which is a physical sun block that provides broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. This particular physical sunscreen is so gentle it can be used on extremely sensitive skin. It can even be applied on skin immediately following resurfacing treatments such as chemical peels and micro-needling without the risk of added irritation! A lot of people can’t tolerate chemical sunscreens due to the high risk of skin sensitivity/irritation, which makes physical sunscreens the perfect choice. Lira’s Oil Free Solar Shield lightly moisturizes leaving a matte finish ideal for oil and/or acne-prone skin. It is also ideal for those with rosacea where irritation can be an ongoing problem.
The benefits don’t stop there with Lira’s Oil Free Solar Shield. It contains potent antioxidants, such as vitamin C and E, to help fight off free radicals that can damage the skin and cause premature aging. One of my favorite benefits of this sunscreen is that it contains grape plant stem cells. Plant-based stem cell technology is cutting edge when it comes to anti-aging therapies and cell protection and repair.
Lastly, I just love the texture of this oil-free formula. It blends perfectly over my Lira Hydra C Serum creating the perfect palate as my makeup base. I even apply it around my eyes over my eye cream for protection. I wear contacts and haven’t had any burning or stinging. It’s that gentle yet effective! It helps my makeup last longer like a primer and I have the assurance that I am protecting my skin from the damaging ultra-violet sun rays.
Our best seller! Lira BB Crèmes are your all in one morning facial product! It’s your moisturizer, sunscreen, plant stem cells, and tinted color all in one! It’s so worth it as it eliminates other products in the morning! I simply apply it and brush over my skin with a little loose powder and I’m done! The coverage is a little thicker than most “tinted sunscreens” but lighter than a foundation. So, on my off days, I simply apply this alone then go outside with my kids or run errands! It does everything I need! There are a few different colors to choose from and we sometimes mix them to create the perfect shade. Lira BB Crèmes give great physical sunscreen coverage as it contains 8.5% zinc oxide and 6.8% titanium dioxide, the two ingredients that make the best sunblock! Stop by our office for a sample!
This one is for the body and it smells good! My kids love it! I actually keep this one in my purse during the summer because you just never know when you’ll decide to get out in the sun when the chance occurs! I apply this one to my preschooler daily before he goes to school and he doesn’t mind a bit. It’s not chalky or sticky at all. In fact, it’s almost a thin lotion or oil and glides across the skin smoothly and invisibly! I have always preached how it’s important to check to make sure you see either zinc oxide or titanium dioxide in your ingredients. When it comes to a body sunscreen, that’s hard to find. Everything I have found at quality places like Vitamin Cottage and Whole Foods is very sticky, white, hard to rub in, and the kids hate it. Not this one! IMAGE Skincare’s Ultra Sheer contains 9.3% zinc oxide and 6.8% octinoxate, which means you are getting both a chemical and a physical block which guarantees you are getting SPF 45 coverage and more!
