Choosing The Right Sunscreen For Your Skin

By ZO® Skin Health


At ZO® Skin Health, we believe that smart sun protection is a key step in any skincare routine – no matter your skin type, skin concerns or lifestyle. Exposure to UV rays accounts for several skin issues, from something as common as dark spots and wrinkles to as detrimental as skin cancer.

But finding the “right” sunscreen is subjective – what may work for one patient, may not work for another.

Consider these three important questions when you’re choosing the right sunscreen for your skin:

1. What is your skin type?

2. Do you have skin concerns?

3. What type of lifestyle do you lead?


But finding the “right” sunscreen is subjective – what may work for one patient, may not work for another.


ZO® Skin Health’s portfolio of scientifically superior sunscreens offers various formulations, from physical to chemical, and differing applications to suit various skin types and lifestyles. Let us guide you to choosing the right ZO® sunscreen for you.

Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50

This lightweight, mineral sunscreen is suitable for even the most sensitive of skin types. Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen’s ultra-mild formulation makes it the optimal option for post-procedure sun protection--it provides soothing hydration and helps minimize irritation. So, if you regularly receive in-office procedures – such as peels or microneedling – or have dry, sensitive skin, this is the sunscreen for you!

Sunscreen + Primer Broad-Spectrum SPF 30

Makeup lovers rejoice in this sunscreen’s smooth application that helps enhance their makeup application. Sunscreen + Primer provides a universal tint and a silky matte finish that blurs skin imperfections for a smoother application.

Daily Sheer Broad-Spectrum SPF 50

This chemical sunscreen offers a non-greasy, quick-drying application. It provides an invisible matte finish that is suitable for oily, acne-prone skin and all skin tones. Daily Sheer is also the only ZO® sunscreen that retains SPF for up to 80 minutes after exposure to water and perspiration – perfect for outdoor activities, like hiking or taking a dip in the pool.

Smart Tone Broad-Spectrum SPF 50

Another chemical sunscreen, but with a unique tint that customizes to your skin tone. Customizable color beads allow Smart Tone to blend seamlessly into any skin tone, while inhibiting the appearance of skin redness. Skincare minimalists that want a worry-free application will enjoy this adaptive option.

Sunscreen + Powder Broad-Spectrum SPF 45

Powder sunscreens are an effective alternative to liquid sunscreens; they usually reduce shine and are optimal for reapplication throughout the day. ZO’s Sunscreen + Powder contains oil-absorbing properties and light-reflecting particles to reduce unwanted surface oils and provide a luminous, matte finish that is suitable for all skin types. A soft, unique brush design allows for a smooth application and effortless airbrushed results wherever you go—reapplying sunscreen has never been easier.
