These Are The Best Anti-Aging Sunscreens Dermatologists Swear By

April 16, 2018 by Jessica Harrington

A good sunscreen is hands down the most important product in your beauty routine. We know you’ve probably heard that a couple thousand times from your dermatologist but it’s so true. The experts swear by it for a reason, you know. We can’t stress enough how life-changing a quality sunscreen is.

Using products with SPF, whether that be makeup or regular sunscreen, saves your skin from a variety of sun-related problems. The sun, as glorious as it is, emits harmful UV rays that damage your skin. Spending time in the sunshine without SPF sunscreen protection on, no matter if you’re just going for a light stroll or spending the day at the beach, can severely harm your complexion. The radiation from the sun can cause sunburn, skin cancer, and premature aging–all things absolutely no one wants.

So for the sake of your skin and its healthy, youthful appearance, you need a daily sunscreen in your life.

SHEfinds spoke with three dermatologists across the country to get their favorite anti-aging sunscreen recommendations and these are the products that they love.

Best Dermatologist-Approved Sunscreens to Fight Premature Aging:

Amarte Ultra Veil Ultra Light Sunsreen Fluid SPF 50 Plus ($56)

 

Dr. Craig Kraffert, board-certified dermatologist and president of Amarte Skin Care, said, “Sunscreen still remains the most important weapon in preventing premature skin aging and skin cancer, especially because these problems occur in frequently exposed areas including the face, neck, upper chest, arms, and hands. Until recently there has been an essentially unmet need for sunscreen products that are aesthetically pleasant, easy to apply, safe, and effective. Intensifying competition has spawned sunscreen innovation. Amarte’s Ultra Veil® ultra-light sunscreen fluid is an example of a next-generation sunscreen that works.  It offers 40-minute water resistant Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ in a super light liquid that absorbs and dries quickly yielding the highest FDA recognized SPF protection available, to protect the face, neck and other sensitive areas sun protective clothing may not cover.”

EltaMD UV Daily Broad-Spectrum SPF 40 ($26.50)

 

Dr. Toral Patel, one of Chicago’s leading board-certified dermatologists said, “All good quality sunscreens that are broad spectrum, meaning they provide protection against both UVA & UVB rays of the sun, with SPF 30-50 will help with anti-aging.”

She has three favorite anti-aging sunscreens.

"Elta MD UV Clear, SPF 46 is great for acne and rosacea-prone skin."

Avene Mineral Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 50 Plus Face Lotion ($28)

 

"Avene Ultra light mineral lotion is great for sensitive skin, works well on darker skin tones."

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 ($32)

 

"And Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen works well under makeup, perfect for darker skin tones," said Dr. Toral Patel.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum Spf 100 ($8.97)

 

 

Dr. Janet Prystowksy, one of NYC’s top dermatologists, said, “The best anti-aging product is sunscreen itself. It’s always better to prevent sun damage and the photoaging that comes with it than to try and fix it later. To that end, I always recommend people use a sunscreen that they like and are likely to use every time they go out in the sun. I prefer broad spectrum, mineral-based sunscreens with SPF 50+ because they provide the most protection. However, as long as your SPF is 30 or more, it’s all about being diligent and reapplying every 2 hours.

Many traditional anti-aging ingredients can sensitize you to sunrays, so I don’t recommend combo products. You’re more likely to do more harm than good. Stick to a traditional sunscreen and be diligent! It truly is the best anti-aging product out there."

She continued, "For a specific sunscreen recommendation, I like Neutrogena’s UltraSheer SPF 100. Elta MD also makes a good sunscreen. A popular one at my office is their UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46."
