Beautiful sunscreens for healthy skin.

Top Dermatologist-approved sun protection for your skin.

It is common knowledge that the daily use of sunscreen is vital to help prevent skin cancer and UV damage that can prematurely age our appearance. That being said, not all sunscreens are created equal. The Canadian Dermatology Association recommends wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen (meaning it protects your skin from both UVA and UVB rays) with a minimum sun protection factor of 30. While these important features are widely available over the counter, an obstacle that prevents many Victoria and Vancouver Island residents from wearing and reapplying sunscreen is its wearability: commercial brands often have a heavy and tacky feel—not exactly what one is looking for in their skincare routine. At Cosmedica, we carry a range of highly effective sunscreens that suit a variety of skin types and personal preferences in terms of their look and feel on the skin. Say goodbye to sticky and goopy sunscreen and hello to happy and healthy skin with our favourite sunscreens to help you enjoy the sun wisely.

SkinCeuticals UV Eye Defense SPF 50

This is a truly innovative SPF product from SkinCeuticals. The skin around the eyes and the eyelid is quite thin, and therefore more vulnerable to sun damage. Applying a heavy or goopy sunscreen that will migrate into the eyes and cause stinging just doesn’t make sense, and therefore, this delicate skin often goes unprotected, leading to premature lines and aging.

UV Eye Defense SPF 50 is a non-migrating chemical-free sunscreen that provides much-needed protection for your precious peepers. Apply a small amount over the entire eye area and reapply throughout the day to ensure optimal protection.

SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50

This groundbreaking weightless formula has won many awards from beauty editors for its exceptional mineral-based protection. Traditionally, physical sunscreens have felt heavy—this product is anything but! The slight tint blends in with most skin types without leaving a trace of colour or tackiness on the skin’s surface. If you break out or are sensitive to chemical sunscreens, you will love this formula!

Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF 50

Reapplying is the last frontier in a tip-top sunscreen regimen. With Colorescience’s brush-on mineral sunscreen, you no longer have to worry about staining clothes or applying a creamy sunscreen overtop of makeup. A dusting of Sunforgettable provides safe and effective sun protection on the go. It’s great for often neglected spots that get a lot of sun exposure—brush it over your ears, along your hairline and part, and across your hands.

These top three sun care products are suitable for all skin types. Add them to your routine to help prevent skin cancer and delay the signs of aging—you won’t be sorry!  Contact us to make your purchase today.
