Expert Sun Protection Year-Round

No Comments | Tags: , , ,

Whether traveling during the warm spring and summer months in and around your own hometown, city or country, or venturing to some faraway, deliciously warm locale in the dead of winter, sun protection is always top of mind.

You can find a wealth of wonderful sun protection products on the market today, including those from MDSolarSciences.

According to the product’s CEO and founder, Dr. Robert J. Friedman, a leading Dermatologic Oncologist, Clinical Professor at the NYU School of Medicine, whether it is winter, spring, summer or fall, protecting our skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays is of the utmost importance.

“… the intensity of the sun’s UVA rays, which cause sun damage to the skin … and, contribute to skin cancer is more or less the same year round,” company information says. In fact, they say, the sun’s intensity increases with increasing altitude by about 5 percent for every 1,000 feet of altitude.

Therefore, if one looks at UVB intensity at 10,000 feet, in Colorado on Vail Mountain at the end of December, for example, versus in Times Square at sea level on the 4th of July, they are more or less the same.

To that end, the company offers a range of broad spectrum sunscreens including organic and mineral products.

I tried their SPF 40 Quick Dry Body Spray, and loved the ease of use, lack of harsh chemical fragrance and the protection it offered while going in and out of the pool and ocean on my last trip. And, because they use non-dangerous chemicals, I feel good about not adding potentially hazardous substances to bodies of water or spraying them into the air.

A Mineral Lotion for Face & Body SPF 50,  Mineral Sunscreen Stick Broad Spectrum SPF 40 and Getaway Gift Trio   are also among their numerous product offerings.
