We sat down with some of our Dermatology Clinic of Idaho 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
A variety of conditions may lead to painful, cracked, chapped lips. Chapped lips are especially common when outdoors a lot and during winter. Dr. Dan’s Cortibalm with cortisone is a great option to help. It’s the only truly hypoallergenic medicated lip balm with 1% hydrocortisone, also known as CortiBalm. Your Dermatology Clinic of Idaho team along with Dermatologists worldwide recommend this product.
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 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:
EltaMD UV Aero 45
EltaMD UV Clear 46
EltaMD UV Clear 46 Tinted
EltaMD UV Elements 44 Tinted
EltaMD UV Facial 30+
EltaMD UV Lotion 30+
EltaMD UV Physical 41 Tinted
EltaMD UV Pure 45
EltaMD UV Replenish 44
EltaMD UV Sport 50
Different types of sunscreen may be better depending on your lifestyle or skin concerns. You can talk to a Provider at Dermatology Clinic of Idaho 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, EltaMD Foaming Facial Cleanser is a gentle enzyme cleanser that’s sensitivity-free. So, you’re left with clean, fresh skin with no overdrying or irritation. It’d also 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. ALASTIN Skincare offers several products that can help with this including their Regenerating Skin Nectar, Restorative Skin Complex, and Gentle Cleanser. These are sulfate free, paraben free, and cruelty free.
After a skin injury, you may want something to help with healing your skin. EltaMD Silvergel is made to help with wounds by promoting healthy healing with antimicrobial protection.
