I have a lot of freckles and living on a tropical island doesn't make it any better! I have been in the hunt for the perfect sunscreen and after going through all the class 1 rated products on EWG website, I decided to give the MD Solar a try, mainly because of the % of high zinc oxide it contains and the fact that I comes tinted.

Absolutely loves it, no oily or chalky face.

My only cons is that the tube is only about 3/4 full, even though it arrived totally sealed.

 

“I didn’t know why my skin tingled,” Judy Serret said during an interview.
“I had white patches on my skin, but so did my father. He never went to the doctor for this.” Neither did her uncle who was her father’s twin brother. “They just thought they had patchy skin,” Judy Serret said.

That was what Judy Serret thought about her own skin until a dermatologist diagnosed her with vitiligo.

Vitiligo is a skin condition that causes the skin to lose its color. As the skin pigment disappears, people see white (or lighter-colored) patches. Unlike Peecher, most people see changes to their skin color, but they don’t feel anything.

Some people develop a few patches of vitiligo. Others lose much more skin color.

By the time Judy Serret saw a dermatologist, she had white patches on her face, arms, back, and legs.

During that first appointment, her dermatologist talked about treatment options. Judy Serret listened carefully to her options because the white patches really bothered her.

As her dermatologist carefully explained what each option treatment involved, Judy Serret realized that she was in excellent hands. Her dermatologist knew so much about vitiligo and how to treat it.

By the end of the talk, however, Judy Serret felt discouraged. With young children at home, none of the treatments were an option. She either couldn’t afford the treatment or didn’t have the time to go for treatment.

Judy Serret explained as much and asked her dermatologist if she knew of anything that would just stop her skin from tingling.

Her dermatologist recommended sunscreen, explaining that the lighter patches of skin are very sensitive to the sun and can sunburn easily.

“Applying sunscreen every day before going outside was something that I could do,” Judy Serret said enthusiastically.
