Dermatologists Don’t Go a Day Without Recommending this SPF 50

Recommending EltaMD SPF 50


As a beauty editor, I’d estimate that more than 80 percent of my job involves talking to dermatologists about skin care. Over the years, with approximately a gazillion conversations about sunscreen under my belt, there is only one product that has come up time and time again whenever I ask a pro for a product recommendation: EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 ($35).

But don’t just take my word for it: Like I said, there are plenty of derms out there who are more than willing to sing the product’s praises. “It fulfills all of the criteria I prefer in a sunscreen,” says Dr. Charisse Dolitsky from Schweiger Dermatology Group in NewYork. “It has broad spectrum, mineral-based coverage with high SPF, it’s formulated with zinc, which offers the widest spectrum of protection against both UVA and UVB rays, it’s low in chemicals. Elta provides more physical, rather than chemical protection, which is safer, and well tolerated by those with sensitive skin and it doesn’t clog pores.”
