Blu Cocoon MedSpa in San Jose Shares Sun Care Tips

It is no secret that most of what we are asked to reverse at Blu Cocoon MedSpa in San Jose is sun damage that includes sun spots, wrinkles, and dried skin. Luckily for you, there are many medspa treatments available to help erase some (or a lot) of the damage that has been done. Even if you are in the process of treating sun damaged skin, we highly recommend preventing future damage by being diligent about your sunscreen application. It is the simplest (and least expensive) way to keep further sun damage at bay.

Use a sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 (or higher) and a broad spectrum block. What about those that claim all-day protection? It usually doesn’t last so be mindful about reapplying every 90 minutes and maybe even more if you are swimming or exercising.

Here are our Blu Cocoon sunscreen favorites:

SkinMedica Daily Physical Defense SPF 30+

  • Provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection
