Schaumburg dermatologist Dr. Jeffrey Hsu of Oak Dermatology provides a summary of the factors to consider when selecting a sunscreen for protection from the damaging effects of UV radiation.

Dr. Hsu and his colleague Dr. Ashish Bhatia describe the differences between chemical sunscreen and physical (zinc oxide, titanium dioxide) sunscreen and speak to the benefits of a physical sunscreen.

They also introduce an interesting brand of sunscreen (ISDIN), previously available only in Europe, that includes an enzyme that helps to repair the skin of any UV damage.
