Who Wants A Great Sunscreen? Here Are Celeb Derm Pat Wexler's Top Picks
Seriously? It doesn’t get much schmancier, at least on the derm front, than NYC-based skin doc Pat Wexler. Her patient roster is kinda insane. She’s been super-duper famous for decades, and has the star clientele to match.
Apart from all that, this is a woman who practices what she preaches. Since any derm worth her / his salt stays the hell out of the sun for fear of aging (and…ahem…possible skin cancer down the road), most of the best ones look like vampires. Dr. Wexler, with her positively porcelain epidermis, embodies this sun-shunning ethos to the nth degree. She’s ghostly, in the best possible way…
So when an email popped-up in my inbox about Dr. Wexler’s new favorite sunscreens, I opened it immediately. Hello? I’m not stupid. I may have the mother of all tennis tans right now (my feet! help!), but I know that le soleil is a total skin-destroyer.
Enough with the preamble. Here are Doc Wexler’s top three skin-protecting picks, and why she likes them. The fine print: it’s all about antioxidants.
1. Colorscience Sunforgettable Brush On Sunscreen: A broad-spectrum brush-on suncreen with the highest levels of zinc oxide and titanium oxide available. Brush can be applied to the face, neck, chest or hands every two hours as needed.
2. Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 45 Primer: An antioxidant supercharged sunscreen packed with cherry blossom, lemon balm and white tea extract to soothe and protect the skin.
3. Dermalogica Pure Light SPF 50: This formula covers broad spectrum rays and uses peptides to regulate melanin production, and adds algae, botanical extracts and skin-fortifying acids to moisturize and nourish skin.
