Obagi Tint Sun Shield: One of The Most Protective Suncreens Available

Twenty percent of Americans, 1 in 5, will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. In addition to increasing your risk for skin cancer, not wearing sunscreen to protect your skin leads to sunburns, brown spots, sun spots, wrinkles and faster aging skin. The importance of wearing a sunblock every day cannot be underestimated.

Obagi has developed one of the most technologically advanced sunscreens available today. Obagi Tint Sunshield not only provides broad-spectrum skin protection from damaging UVA and UVB rays, but it also incorporates defense against infrared (IR) radiation.

The sun damages your skin through UVB, UVA, and Infrared Radiation:

  • UVB light penetrates the skin through the epidermis. It penetrates the skin less deep than UVA light. It is the primary cause of sunburns and contributes to photoaging. It plays a key role in the development of skin cancer.
  • UVA light penetrates the skin through the dermis. It penetrates the skin deeper than UVB light. It too plays a role in the development of skin cancer. It has a mayor role in accelerating photoaging and causing:
    Skin Roughness
    Blotchy Skin Color
    Brown Spots
    Poor Skin Tone
    Sallowness (a sickly yellowish or brownish color to your skin)
  • New research shows that Infrared Radiation penetrates deep into the subcutaneous layer, or fat layer of the skin. It penetrates far deeper than UVA and UVB light and thus causes greater damage to the skin. About half of all solar energy reaching the skin is IR radiation.

The Obagi Tint Sunshield protects the skin in 3 ways:

  • Thermic micro-shield crystals to disperse the heat at the skin surface.
  • Helps buffer the skin from heat-derived oxidation.
  • Helps skin maintain resiliency against IR radiation.

Obagi Tint Sun Shield also includes:

  • Zinc Oxide: soothes skin and blocks UVA/UVB rays
  • Titanium Dioxide: a mineral sunblock that protects skin from UV damage
  • Algae Extract: hydrates and protects skin from irritation
  • Vitamin E: prevents free-radical damage

As an added bonus, Obagi Tint Sunshield is one of the only sunscreens available in Warm and Cool tints to enhance your skin tone and give you a natural glow.
Obagi Sun Shield Warm and Cool Tint
It is hypoallergenic and fragrance-free and has been dermatologist tested for all skin types. It never leaves a white cast or greasy residue. Incorporate it into your daily morning ritual to stay protected. For maximum protection, it is important to use your sunscreen every day because UV and IR radiation can reach the skin even on cloudy days and through glass windows.

The Skin Cancer Foundation highly recommends Obagi Tint Sun Shield as an effective broad-spectrum sunscreen. Obagi Sunscreen Skin Cancer Foundation Approved
